    As you can imagine, creating a solar panel comparison table of this nature and extent was quite a daunting task given the number of brands and models now available, modules being discontinued, prices always changing and technical specification information sometimes difficult to track down.

    Are there panel models missing from this table?

    We update this table frequently as more products and information become available, and specifications and prices of existing solar panels listed change.

    Please note solar panel prices indicated are our best estimate of retail pricing including GST, based on available information, unless specifically noted otherwise.

    Also note that warranty information was current at the time of adding the model – always check with the manufacturer for the latest warranty information.
