I’m new to Solar, and doing my research. Would like to install solar, choices I have are TrinaSoltaro 4kw with Fronius Inverter approx $6650 13 x 305W or Sunpower 4kws with Fronius inverter 10 x 320W approx $7800. Still to get written quote as the installer needs to come out to do site inspection. Warranty for Trina panels is 10 years whereas Sunpower is 25 years. My budget is being far stretched if I go for the Sunpower panels.
In your opinion how good are Trina panels in terms of efficiency and performance? is 10 year warranty normal warranty period for solar panels?
