Products

Sparktec offers a variety of inverters and solar panels. The products we have chosen are all well-established brand names with a long history of proven reliability and performance. Unlike many solar companies, all of our products are supplied by local solar wholesalers not direct from the manufacturer. This means, in the unlikely instance of a warranty claim, we're not dealing with overseas companies but rather Australia wide wholesalers with Brisbane offices ensuring fast local support, genuine warranties and greater consumer protection.

 

As well as the products below Sparktec also offers range of independently rated tier 1 Chinese panels and inverters. The bulk of panels and inverters these days are Chinese and there are substantial variations in their quality, reliability and output. They vary from very bad to very good and everything in between. Sparktec provides our customers with a diverse selection of panels and inverters to suit almost any budget. The products we choose have been selected because they offer the best warranties, quality, performance and value for money.
