How is SolarWide helping Sunshine Coast homeowners and businesses to cut down on power costs

“- I’m Dan from SolarWide. We’re based here at Warana on the Sunshine Coast. We focus predominantly on residential, small commercial, and battery storage solar power. The family owned and operated business is myself, my wife, my parents, my brother-in-law. We’re all involved in the business. And of course we’ve got salespeople, all our own installers. Everything is done in-house.

At SolarWide we specialise in solar power. Of course, we’ve got all of our electricians, we are an electrical company but we purely focus on solar power. We find a lot of your general electricians they’ll do one or two solar systems every month or every couple of months and you cannot keep up with the quality demands. Our everyday business, day to day, are your moms and dads, looking for solar power, trying to cut their power bills down and make their cost of living a lot easier. That’s our day to day, bread and butter is residential solar power. Multiple jobs every day. And then we do commercial solar as well. In our previous property we had solar on the roof there. We didn’t get a power bill at all. As soon as we got into the new place, we put another solar power system on the roof.

So we’ve seen it first hand, we know that solar power really can save businesses big dollars every year. It sounds strange but solar panels will actually reduce performance and reduce output with higher temperature. The hotter it gets, the worse the panel can perform, so it’s really important to get a good quality solar panel that will handle that heat well. LG solar panels are one of the best in the business to ensure that on those days where it’s a hot day, you’ve got your aircon cranking, the solar is performing at its max, not at its lowest.

Homeowners around the area choose SolarWide because we’ve been around a long time. We’ve been around since 2010. We’ve built up a very, very strong reputation over the years for quality. We’re using great products like LG, inverters like Fronius, products that have been around a long time and they’ve got that back up. Everything is all installed by our own staff, nothing is contracted out.

If you focus on price, you’re generally going to get corners cut, you’re going to get lower grade products, you’re going to get lower grade installation. It doesn’t cost a lot more to get a quality system, and a quality system is going to last you for an awful lot longer and keep performing month after month, year after year for many, many years to come, and you’re going to be saving a lot more money with no down time. Really these failing systems are generally because people have bought a cheap system at the start thinking that all solar is the same, and unfortunately all solar is very, very different. There’s a big difference from the bottom end of the market to the mid-end of the market and also to the top end.

It’s really important to do the research, get a quality product, and you really can’t go wrong. When choosing solar, it’s really important to get quality panels, quality inverters, make sure the installer is using quality isolators, quality cable. It’s really important to get something that’s designed to last for a long run or you just end up with years and years of a headache.

Our most popular systems are LG solar panels and when we’re choosing a brand to bring into our range, it’s really important to know that the company has been around for a long time and they’ll still be around in a long time if there’s an issue.

– SolarWide looks after us in the wider Sunshine Coast. They’re the LG authorized dealer. They’re looking after quality, great financial outcomes, good service, good support. I can highly recommend them.

How do high quality solar panels help Sunshine Coast homeowners insure against salt mist corrosion

“- My name’s Greg Young, we’re located in Minyama which is on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. We’re quite close to the coast. We live in a salt water environment and that was an important factor in the decision on our system. It had to work well in this environment and also be able to withstand relatively harsh environmental conditions. The system that we installed has 18kW of capacity. We had to plan the solar system in such a way that it would work well in a marine environment. We’re very very close to salt water and we wanted solar panels and a racking system that was going to last. We needed a system that would stand up to the elements. Particularly the harsh elements on the Sunshine Coast very close to a saltwater and a salty environment.

– [Dan] You put a cheap system in this area it’s simply going to fail after a short period of time. The salt mist is quite severe, with a cheaper solar panel will work its way in, it will find a way into the panel which can degrade the panel, it can corrode elements of it. And often what we find is, the first thing is it allows water and moisture to get into the panel which is a big problem.

– As part of the process, I spoke to about six different solar companies around the region and SolarWide I felt comfortable with their understanding of my needs their ability to work with me. Because we wanted to install and engineer a system that was of course functional, met our performance but also minimized the visual impact and the aesthetics on the house.

– [Dan] So one of our most popular panels is LG. LG have the highest salt rating available. They’ve passed all of the extra tests to ensure that they are not going to be affected by salt mist. They will in fact warrant panels right to the ocean in full salt list environments, without a problem. Fully warranted, 25 years for product and 25 years for performance.

– [Greg] We’re very passionate about the climate we want to ensure that we have a good, healthy country for the future of our children and we believe that everybody should be considering solar and alternate sources of energy.”
