Solar Panels

Solar panels are also known as photovoltaic (PV) modules. These modules are made from solar cells that convert light energy into electricity by the photovoltaic effect. Suntrix only use AS/NZS 5033-compliant photovoltaic (PV) modules that have been approved by the Clean Energy Council as meeting Australian standards.

We currently offer a choice of brands – JA Solar and Trina Solar.  Both are classified as Tier 1 solar panel manufacturers; meaning they manufacture their panels ‘from scratch’, invest heavily in R&D, utilize advanced robotic processes and have at least 5 years experience in the industry.

Suntrix can recommend the best panel technology for your environment and requirements. Our products include mono-crystalline and poly-crystalline modules – standard and half-cell.

Our Products

Mono-crystalline Solar Panel
Mono-crystalline solar panels

Mono-crystalline solar panels are made from purified silicon, formed into a crystal ingot and cut into round wafers, giving them a distinctive white diamond look. Mono-crystalline panels are the most efficient of all technologies, requiring much less roof space than other panels.

They don’t contain heavy metals and have a proven track record within the industry, with an estimated useful life of 35-40 years.

The efficiency of mono-crystalline solar panels can be affected by low-light, heat and shade. Suntrix panels have better low-light performance than the industry standard and overheating is minimised by ensuring adequate airflow beneath the panels.

Poly-crystalline Solar Panels

Poly-crystalline solar panels are a close cousin to mono-crystalline differing only in the way they are manufactured, in a cast rather than individual crystal ingots.

These panels are blue in colour and share all the same technical aspects as mono-crystalline modules such as heat tolerance and shading.

Poly-crystalline solar panels have a slightly lower efficiency per watt than the mono-crystalline modules but they have a slightly better yield.
