Hi Royritayan,

These are all budget level systems with a very cheap Growatt inverter. I would recommend requesting a quote with a higher spec inverter such as SMA or Fronius. It’s always worth investing a little more for higher quality components when it comes to solar.

The Jinko panels are my pick of the bunch, Risen are also ok, but I wouldn’t go with the poly panels from Canadian.

What area are you in @royritayan?

Denham Court, Marty! Thanks!

Finally deciding to go with the following 7.5 kW solar system than 6.6 kW from Solar Power Nation:

23 x Risen Energy Co Ltd Risen 330W

Mono Perc Half Cut Panels Solar Panel 1 x (ABB) Power-One Italy S.p.A ABB 7.5TL - OUTD - 3 Phase Inverter

Installation price: $4050

Would you think this is a good deal and decent reputed products and retailer (Solar Power Nation)?

Thank you!

Hi @royritayan

It’s a pretty cheap system. Have you had a good look through the reviews of this company? I did a quick Google search and found a number of recent ones that were less than glowing let’s say.
