Balancing Innovation And Reliability To Unlock Long-term Solar Success

  • Post category:Blog

In the fast-evolving world of solar energy, choosing the right technology is a critical decision that impacts the efficiency, reliability and longevity of your solar power system.

Investing in solar power should see you reap long-term financial benefits, but these rewards diminish if the technology fails and it becomes costly to repair or replace faulty equipment.

Our 30 years’ experience has taught us that the first iterations of new technologies are not necessarily the best. Instead, we believe in reputation-backed innovation when it comes to selecting technology that will harness the sun’s energy to power your life.

In this blog, we’ll delve into the value of tried and tested products, and the reason why being the first to adopt the latest market innovations – like some of the first battery storage systems – is not always best practice.

Knowledge is power

The foundation for success is understanding. Any reputable solar supplier should have a deep understanding of the technology it employs.

Our team is well-versed in the intricacies of solar technology – all of it. Not just the ‘big stuff’ like panels and inverters, but every little element that fits together to create a reliable system that works for you now, and into the future.

And because we understand our technology so intimately, we explain it to our customers in great detail, answer their questions and qualify why we use particular technologies over others.

For our customers, this knowledge is power. It gives them the information and confidence to ask questions of our competitors so they can truly compare their options.

The reliability of tried and tested

In the dynamic landscape of solar technology, it is tempting to be the first to adopt the latest innovations. Instead, we prioritise tried and tested products over the allure of technological trends that are often yet to be proven in the long-term.

This deliberate choice stems from our commitment to providing our customers with reliable, proven solutions that we stand by.

Our brands have already stood the test of time and our customers benefit from the collective knowledge and refinement that comes with years of successful use in various environments.

We use some of the globe’s most respected, awarded and dependable technologies, including:

·  Tesla Powerwall – introduced in 2015 and winner of Japan’s 2019 Smart Energy Excellence Award.

·  Canadian Solar – founded in 2001, used in 160 countries, Number 1 company in Bloomberg New Energy Finance’s Tier 1 Module Manufacturers in Q2 2018, and GTM Research’s 2017 Top 3 Global Utility-scale Solar PV Project Developer.

·  Seletronic – Australian-owned company since 1964 and member of the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame.

·  Solis – more than 20 years of technical development and winner of EuPD Research Top Brand PV Inverters six consecutive years.

·  Fronius – a 75-year history and crowned winner of the Excellence in Business to Consumer category at the 2023 German Innovation Awards.

What we use are not merely products, but brands and solutions that have consistently delivered results for our customers, ensuring the longevity of our business of more than 30 years.

Innovation without experimentation

Innovation is undeniably essential for progress. Striking a balance between embracing new technologies and ensuring the dependability of our solutions is key to our business.

We choose brands with integrity, proven track-records and a focus on continuous improvement. This approach allows us to provide cutting-edge solutions, without compromising the performance and durability our customers expect.
