At SolarWide we offer LG Solar Panels

SolarWide only uses high quality, durable and long lasting solar panels and inverters from reputable solar  component manufacturers that we trust to be around for a long time, to give our customers strong after service support. 

SolarWide is your local Sunshine Coast solar power specialist. We have installed thousands of solar panels in homes, businesses and community buildings throughout the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and much of south east Queensland.

The general industry and specifically our own experience has shown that not all panel and inverter warranties are the same. In 2021 LG Electronics offers the most trusted panels in Australia.

Why LG panels

If you have done any research into solar you will have likely seen that LG is regarded by most industry reviews as the absolute best solar panel. The reason is that the panels have been built with a very high-quality control and we believe such a top-quality panel is needed in the corrosion heavy Sunshine Coast region. 

This means that SolarWide does not operate in the bottom end of the solar market. Regularly we are not going to be your cheapest quote, but we often are the financially most advantageous quote.

The reason is that if we cost a little more, but give you a system that lasts double as long as the cheaper option, over the life of the solar system you get a significantly better overall savings result. 

LG panels perform better in hot weather than standard panels.

We have experience that cheap solar panels simply don’t last, and can’t cope with the climate here in the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Gympie regions. 

A lot of the cheaper option solar companies had to close their doors after a few years, (over 50 on the Sunshine Coast alone and close to 800 Australia wide since 2011) as the warranty load became overwhelming. When these companies then close, many of the warranties become worthless. 

Over the last decade in solar, we also have seen many, many solar panel manufacturers come and go (over 400 in Australia) but we are confident that LG Electronics, a $55 billion dollar electronics manufacturer with over 300 staff in Australia will be here in the long run to back their warranty. 

LG Solar is known to be the best and we offer a range of different LG panels, such as the NeON H and NeON R to suit various budgets. 

As LG’s only local Platinum Partner (for over 5 years) we purchase LG panels at a solid discount and that gives us a big price advantage over other companies supplying an identical LG panel system. 

We pass these savings onto our customers and so you might be quite surprised at how well priced we are with LG solar panels

High-quality products with the best installation and the best service are how we have got to where we are today. We have been here for more than a decade and plan to be here for decades to come, to provide system after-sales service and battery expansion work for your home and business. Go Solar, Go SolarWide.
