Frequently Asked Questions

This depends on

  • Size of the system.
  • Do you use power during the day or night?
  • Are you willing to use it properly?>

As an example a 10kw system on a domestic house using 60% of the power the solar panels produce and sending 40% to the grid. At the time of writing would save you $762 per quarter on your electricity bill.

Over 20 years this is over $60,000!! even if power prices don’t rise!

The short answer is yes. But at a reduced power output. Solar panels work best in the sun. 

This will happen the moment your solar panel system is turned on. in QLD this is after the energy company change your meter to a digital import/export  meter.Usually about two weeks after your installation.

Warranties on solar panels differ between brands. most panels carry a 25 year performance warranty but it is extremely difficult to claim on. Most good solar panels have 10-15 years on the product which is the “real warranty.

How ever, many brands are not good to deal with. that is why Lumax solar is very picky on who we choose to to business with.

Only companies with Australian offices and local warranties.

If your solar panels are installs by a reputable solar installer like Lumax solar then yes they will have no issues during a cyclone. This is one reason its important to use a local company as we understand that cyclones are a very real issue in Cairns and Townsville.

We “over engineer our systems to make sure you will have decades of trouble free enjoyment of your low bills.

Unfortunatly there are some very unscrupulous operators in the solar industry. Selling low quality products at very cheap prices.

IF you buy from these kinds of operators then yes , it is quite likley. If you buy from a reputable supplier like Lumax solar who has been around for many years and is a platinum rated supplier then this will not happen and you can expect decades of great performance.
