There are many things that need to be considered
when looking at purchasing a solar system. There is more to purchasing a solar system than just considering panels and an inverter. Purchasing a solar system is like purchasing a car - you need information in order to be able to make a good decision. At JNT we are more than happy to give you all the information about our system,our company, our warranties, cost vs savings and about the solar industry as a whole
What to consider when purchasing a
Below are the key points that need to be answered to your satisfaction if you are to commit to a solar system Point 1 - What do you know about the company you are dealing? Point 2 - What warranties will you get with your solar system? Point 3 - What is the quality of the components? Point 4 - How will your system perform in our harsh Aussie conditions? Point 5 - Is your system safe? Point 7 - How much will your solar system save you? Point 8 - Are you getting the best price possible? Point 9 - Is the Costs vs Savings ratio worthwhile?
WE WILL ANSWER ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS AND MORE ON THE FOLLOWING PAGES AND GIVE YOU PRICING GUIDELINES
IS SOLAR A SMART CHOICE?
Everybody in Australia should have a solar system on their roof. Solar saves you money, is good for the environment and is easily affordable and without it - youâ€™ll pay for it anyway.
ELECTRICITY PRICES KEEP GOING UP! Can you afford to pay your electricity bill based on probable future price increases in the cost of electricity? Below is the title of a recent article by the SBS on electricity price increases. They state that prices could rise by as much as 30% “Eastern seaboard consumers could see electricity prices rise by as much as 30 per cent....” Four Corners By Michael Brissenden Posted 8 May 2017, 6:00am This might be a bold prediction but the table to your right shows how much your bill will increase by each year based only on a 10% increase per year per $100 of your bill. In other words for every $100 your bill is per quarter the table shows what your annual bill will go up by so if your bill is $300 a quarter you can triple the price increae if it’s $400 you can quadriple the price increase shown and so on.
Electricity vs Petrol Your car runs on petrol. If I could give you the ability to make petrol at home for your car would you take me up on that? Of course you would!
But your house runs on electricity and I am giving you the ability to produce electricity on your very own roof so why would you not take me up on that?
Solar utilises the suns energy to produce electricity and the sun is a renewable resource making solar efficient as well as clean and green.
What About The Environment and Climate Change and Health Issues? Coal fired power is making us and the planet sick. HOW COAL FIRED POWER IS MAKING US SICK BRAIN LUNGS - Inflames lung tissue (asthma) - Accelerates onset & worsens symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary diseas - Slows pulmonary reflexes - Reduces lung function
Increased risk of stroke
HEART - Alters cardiac autonomic function - Reduces ability of cardiac cells to repair themselves - Increases risk of heartbeat arrhythmia - Increases risk of heart attack and stroke
CIRCULATORY SYSTEM BLOOD - Increses risk of blood clots - Peripheral thrombosis - Reduces oxygen saturation
Air Pollution in Beijing

HOW DOES A SOLAR SYSTEM WORK?
Solar Panels Inverter
Battery Storage Solar panels turn light into direct current (DC) power The inverter turns DC current into AC (alternating current) and that current is sent into the house to power your house. If you have battery storage the excess electricity you make is stored in batteries so you can draw on that electricity at night and depending on the battery system you can also draw on your stored electricity during a blackout If your batteries are full then the excess power off your roof is sold back to the grid at a FIT (feed in tariff) specified by your electricity retailer A 2 way meter measures how much electricity you sell back to the grid and how much electricity you buy off the grid

Workmanship 10 Years Panels 25 Year Warranty Inverter 10 Years
Racking 10 Years
The Problem With Other Companies Warranties Whilst our warranties are straight forward and serviced by us right here in Australia, other companies warranties are full of loop holes and land mine. See below for more detail. This document contains actual word for word extracts from one of the leading suppliers of solar systems in Australia. This warranty is fairly typical throughout the solar industry. As you will see this warranty is worth basically nothing. In red is the wording from the warranty and in blue is a simply explanation of what is being stated.
General Statements About The Product and Services the Installation Subcontractor) will advise you of any additional services and/ or items that are not included in the Installation but which are required to complete the Installation. 5.2 You will receive this advice either during the pre-Installation site inspection (if one is conducted) or on the day of Installation (if no pre-Installation site inspection is conducted). This is common tactic demonstrating that the quoted price is often not the full price of your system installed. When the sub-contractor comes out to do the installation they will add on all sorts of extra charges. You may elect to enter into an agreement with the Installation Subcontractor This is further proof that you will be told about extra charges on the day of installation because the subbie will already be carrying a contract so he can charge you for the extras
Solar Panel Warranty CHANGZHOU TRINA SOLAR ENERGY CO.,LTD LIMITED WARRANTY FOR TRINA SOLAR BRAND CRYSTALLINE SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC MODULES Address: No.2 Trina Road, Trina PV Industrial Park, New District, Changzhou, Jiangsu, P.R. China, 213031 This warranty is with the manufacturer not the solar company and they are located in China. If you have a problem you have to return the panel to China The costs and expenses for their removal, installation or reinstallation shall remain with Buyer This shows you that not only do you have to return the panel to China but you have to do so at your expense refund the historical purchase price of the relevant Product(s) annually reduced by a linear depreciation Even if you bothered to send the panel back to China they will only give a fraction of the cost of a new panel
Inverter Warranty This warranty is for a period of 5 years from the date of manufacture of the product as detailed on the product or the product manual or 5 years from the date of installation, whichever occurs first This warranty is also with the manufacturer and is for 5 years from the date of manufacture so if it sits around in a warehouse for 2 years you only have 3 years warranty once installed and you have no way of knowing this
The Quality of Our Technology JNT Electrical only provide the best products to our customers Our solar panels are A grade high efficieny 270W premium panels JNTâ€™s panel efficiency makes them one of the best available (60 cells in each panel) All panels are Australian and German tested and accredited Racks are inclined to 25-30 degrees which is optimal for the Australian conditions Our inverters are top quality and utilise all in house components and are designed to stand up to Australian conditions
Cell Quality Solar panels can be subjected to tests that simulate aging by exposing them to extreme conditions in the labratory. We can then test the cells in the panels by conducting an electroilluminescence scan. Dark patches indicate cells that are no longer functioning which will effect the overall productions of your solar system. Dead cells mean dead panels which means the requirement for a new system. 0 YEARS

Workmanship & Safety Not all installations are done properly. A poor quality installation can - at best - stop your system working at full capacity and thereby saving you less money - or worse - it can lead to safety issues which could lead to electrocution and fire hazards.
EXAMPLES OF POOR QUALITY INSTALLATIONS BY OTHER COMPANIES
Our installations are done correctly first time everytime!!
Dangers Of Poorer Quality Panels Our top quality panels wonâ€™t fail and wonâ€™t lead to any dangerous situations. They are fully tested and comply with all necessary standards and can handle our harsh Australian Conditions. Below are 2 possible issues resulting from poor quality panels that you need not worry about with our panels.
Left: Delaminated cells in solar panels due to cheap components
Right: poor quality panels not only are less productive but can be downright dangerous. This array caught fire possibly due to arcing from water ingress.
Dangers Of Poorer Quality Components As in any industry product recalls can occur. We know every component we’ve used in your system so on the outside chance that a product recall happens we can swap the component over very quickly. Other companies may not even know what components they used and if they were any recalled they wouldn’t know and you wouldn’t know. Cable
Left: Cable recalled due to fire hazard. If this was in your system and your solar company doesn’t know it is then you have a problem. Left: Isolators recalled due to fire hazard and electric shock hazard. If this was in your system and your solar company doesn’t know it is then you have a problem.
WE KNOW OUR COMPONENTS KEEPING YOU AND YOUR FAMILY SAFE FROM ANY HAZARDS
Dangers Of Poorer Quality Components WE SUPPLY EVERY SINGLE COMPONENT OF YOUR SYSTEM.
