Frequently Asked Questions
The term ‘Tier 1’ has been used incorrectly as a measure of the performance and quality of Solar Panels for some time. The Tier 1 rating was developed by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) and in the case of the Solar Panel industry the key criterion is ‘bankability’. Defined as “whether projects using the solar products are likely to be offered non-recourse debt financing by banks”
BNEF strongly recommend that module purchasers and banks do not use the Tier rating system as a measure of quality, but instead consult a technical due diligence firm. Source:
Price can vary on a solar energy system considerably, and will depend on a number of factors, such as system size, roof type, aspect and even rooftop shading. At Tindo we don’t offer an average price or package option, preferring to work with you to tailor a solution that will work best for your unique situation.
Across Australia, there are many different programs designed to incentivise and reduce the cost of Solar systems for residential and business owners. These change frequently. The Clean Energy Council (CEC) and the Smart Energy Council are both great resources available to check for programs that you might be eligible for. State and Local Government websites and departments may also be able to provide you with up-to-date information.
Output from a solar panel is measured as wattage, frequently displayed as (W). The rated wattage of a panel will give you a good idea of how much energy it will produce. The current Tindo Solar Panel offerings range from 410W – 550W
One of the main reasons people elect to install solar is often to reduce their energy costs, how soon you’ll start to see a return on your investment will ultimately depend on a number of factors, including the system size, rebates/incentives on offer, feed-in-tarrifs and your energy consumption. Our Energy Consultants will demonstrate the savings and ROI you can expect from your system during the design stage.
Home Battery storage is increasing in popularity as a way for many homeowners to increase their energy independence and safe-guard against power disruptions. We work with some of the leading brands in Home Battery storage, such as Tesla, Sonnen, SolarEdge. Our Energy Consultants will work closely with you to ensure that we select the best battery option for your needs and budget.
Roy Morgan Research states on their website that 3.2 million Australian homes have solar installed on their rooftop. This data was reported in June 2022 – so that number may have already increased. This puts Australia firmly in the top 10 countries for solar installation.
Generally speaking, a residential solar system can be installed in less than a day, larger more complex projects may need longer. Our teams will communicate with you about the installation time and complexities before installation day.
Most people assume that north-facing solar panels will capture the most sun and generate the greatest amount of electricity, and for the most part that is correct. If you have a different aspect on your property, there may still be adequate energy generated in an array that faces a different angle. Depending on your energy usage patterns there may be some benefit in installing panels on different angles to ensure you are generating energy when you are more likely to be home and using it.
Selecting the best quality panel you can afford is a great place to start. Look at warranties and performance guarantees and assess the longevity of the panel. A great resource for this is the Desert Knowledge Solar centre, where you can select a variety of different panels, from various suppliers to assess the output over the long term. Some panels start deteriorating early in their life and need replacing sooner and replacing panels isn’t a great option.
Yes, the wattage on the panel varies, some brands even have different models that will produce a different output. Tindo’s current model panel is a 410w panel.
Tindo solar panels are high quality, it’s they way we have designed and engineered them. We don’t take shortcuts in the manufacturing process and have a strict zero-defect policy. We haven’t been into other factories to see their processes and systems so can’t compare, but the average failure rate of solar panels in the world is 1 in 1,000 pa – Tindo panels failure rate is 1 in 200,000 (source: Dr Andrew Thompson Australian National University)
One of the best resources available for Australians looking for Solar is the government funded Desert Knowledge Solar Centre, where you can compare the data of over 40 installed panel models in real-time.
Cheaper isn’t always better, the right system for you is one that will see you using most of the energy you generate or storing your energy in a battery for later use. There are certainly risks in buying a cheaper product in terms of safety and longevity. A solar system isn’t cheap, it’s a comparable purchase to a small vehicle and so we suggest researching the best products and installers for your budget.
There is no standard number of panels that we recommend. The number of panels will depend on the size of the system our team designed for you, your property and your energy usage.
Absolutely, solar energy can be a great investment if the right size and type of system are installed. Home or business owners should consider the total cost across the lifetime of their system and work out if solar will be a good investment for their individual circumstances before making the decision to install a solar system on their property. Our Energy Consultants will show you in detail the payback period and cost reductions you can expect from the system we design for you.
