Would use JA solar

JA solar seems like a good option for a good system that is cheaper compared to other brand names. I installed my solar last year so unfortunately I can't use JA.

Are JA Solar Panels made for Australian conditions?

Yes. Mono Perc Panel is better suited to Australian conditions than a “Poly” Panel because we get very cold temperatures in Winter and very hot temperatures in Summer. If you need a panel that works in the heat of summer and the cold of winter consider a JA Solar Mono.

Do you have shading on your roof?

If your house has issues with shading you will want to consider a Mono Perc Half Cell System. A Half Cell panel reduces the impact of shading. If the bottom half is shaded the top half continues to work. If you have problems with shading on your roof top consider a JA Solar Mono Half Cell Panel.

How much does a JA Solar Panel cost?

In Victoria you can get a 6.6kW system with 275W Poly Panels from $4,500 installed. Other states will be from $3,600 for the same sized system. This is because STC rebates. A 6.6kW system with 315W half cell panels will cost you around $5,000 in Victoria and $4,300 in other states. JA Solar panel price is affordable but also provides great performance. If you have plenty of space on your roof and want to save some money you could consider a “Poly” panel. “Poly” panels were very popular a few years ago but are being replaced by “Mono” panels. This means you can often get a “Poly” panel cheaper. If you are looking for the best cheapest panel consider a JA Solar Poly Panel.

Adding battery storage to your solar system.

If you want to add a battery to your system then a “Mono” or “Mono Half Cell” JA Solar module is a very good choice. Thanks to the each module’s high conversion efficiencies these panels are a great choice if you are considering adding energy storage or claiming feed in tariffs. If you want to add a battery consider a JA Solar Mono Half Cell.

What is the JA Solar Panel Warranty?

JA Solar have a 12 year product and 25 year performance warranty for all of there solar panels. For Poly panels the performance is warrantied for 80.7% and for Mono Perc it is 83.1% from its original power output. This is a very strong performance warranty in the industry.
