Solar Panel Comparison

Save Energy is a long serving installer of quality solar technologies in the local market.  Although we can source most panels on the market our experience has shown only a few panels can withstand the long term harsh Australian conditions.

We believe three panels stand out as superior.  Below is a comparison comparing to industry standard panels:
