Arkana Energy Group 6.6Kw Solar Quote

I have been quoted a 21 Phono Solar 305-320w Twin Plus Module and Sungrow SG5K-D Inverter for $7995 after rebate installed.

I live near Lismore NSW. Single story colorbond roof. 150m from pole mounted transformer. Seems a little dearer than anticipated however reviews of the system are all pretty good.

Any comments?

Hi Todd, and welcome.

I agree, seems a little dearer than I’d expect for that system. I would get a couple of alternative quotes, we’ve got a couple installers listed on our Northern Rivers page. You can also see some price comparisons from other quotes on that page. It looks like you are being quoted over $2 per watt (before STCs), it’s unusual to see quotes that high for STC zone 3, even for premium products.

There is nothing wrong with those products, both pretty solid brands, however for that price I would be considering top notch, as per these articles:


Hope that helps,
Marty

It sounds too expensive to me. The hardware is low end stuff.
