Are REC Solar Panels Worth It for Australian Homes?

As Certified REC Solar Installers, here is why we recommend REC to homeowners or businesses looking for quality solar panels.

As one of Queensland's longest-serving and most experienced solar companies, we have joined REC's network of Certified Solar Installers to bring our customers another premium solar panel range. Read on to discover why and for who we recommend REC solar panels and why you must have your REC panels installed by a REC Certified Solar Installer so you don't miss out on exclusive warranty extensions.


Is REC a Reliable Solar Manufacturer?

REC was established in 1996 in Norway and has since expanded to be a global leader in the solar manufacturing industry. With over 25 years of experience in the manufacture of wafers, solar cells, and solar panels and a key focus on sustainable production, REC's products are a superb example of when efficiency meets sustainability. The global headquarters remain in Norway, with its production sites based in both Norway and Singapore.

Springers Solar has over 20 years of experience in the solar industry, and we are confident in REC's product quality and are proud to install REC panels on our customer's rooftops. 

Are REC Solar Panels Suitable for Australian Homes and Businesses?

Australians need to consider carefully which panel to install on their roof, as salt, hail, winds, and high temperatures are prevalent and can quickly deteriorate ill-quality panels. REC has designed its solar panels to withstand the harsh conditions of the Australian climate, and its panels are considered one of the best on the market for Australian homes and businesses. With stringent internal testing for extreme environments and additional third-party testing, REC panels are repeatedly reliable in their quality.

Performance is guaranteed with advanced cell technology, innovative twin-panel design to overcome shading issues, improved flow of electric current, and support bars to protect the cells and ensure a super-strong frame. This high-quality level has made REC leaders in avoiding power loss due to degradation, meaning you're able to generate more power from your panels for longer. This ultimately saves you more money and makes the return on investment shorter.

Quality for Cost

Being a premium solar panel with top-of-the-range quality, REC's panels can be a more substantial investment than other ranges we offer. It is important to have a chat with one of our solar consultants so they can complete a site inspection and analyse your energy consumption to produce an accurate quote. We recommend REC to those who want their panels to perform above average, prefer an elegant solar design, and wish to have a hassle-free, low degradation system for decades to come.

What are the Best REC Panels on Offer?

We offer both the REC TwinPeak 4 Panel in 370W and the REC Alpha Pure Series in 405W (pictured above).

The REC TwinPeak 4 panel is the cost-effective option that offers the famous optimised, innovative technology REC is renowned for. With the TwinPeak p-type mono design, this panel delivers high power per square metre and greater performance in shade. 

The REC Alpha Pure Series is REC's premium panel, and offers higher power density through advanced cell technology, delivering 20% more power than conventional panels. The gapless cell layout uses the entire panel surface to generate power and creates a seamless, elegant design for rooftops. It is also REC's most environmentally-friendly panel, with eco-conscious manufacturing and lead-free* components for less environmental impact.
