Solar quotes Coffs Harbour, NSW

Hi, I have 4 Quotes I’d appreciate reviews on … here goes

I like the idea in Q3 of SolarEdge being able to monitor each individual panels performance separately rather than trying to find which panel in string is having issues , is this worth the extra ?

Hi @jhJeff

It’s really a personal choice at the end of the day, how much you value the ability to monitor each panel and the ability to optimise the power curve of each panel. Then there’s a whole big debate about micro inverters vs power optimisers. There’s a thread on it here:

So quote 4 went from $10k to $7k? That would concern me.

The others seem well priced with quality gear (as always, most important thing is the installer reviews). The big decision is probably whether you want that panel level optimisation or not. Then you can focus on the specific products.

Cheers
