I did a bit of research on this (including the outdoor show at Jeff's Shed late last year), and eventually went to Energy Matters in Market Street, South Melbourne.

They seem to know what they are talking about (I'm pretty much a novice with this solar stuff); didn't mind silly questions; and sell panels with what appeared (to me, at least) to be heavy grade fittings.

Coundn't agree more.

make sure you check their internet prices which are less than thte shop prices. They will match their internet prices as soon as you mention it.

Solid advice, always helpful if you have a question and the best prices I could find for brand name panels.

Been looking also.
Has anyone had any experience with Todae.
Their prices seem low and free shipping.

eg 80w BP polycrystaline $725 delivered.

Xcat,

Did the rounds in Melbourne and there are a few good websites (Energy matters as mentioned above) as well as a mob in Geelong. Having had a good look around for a bifold portable unit, I went with the offerings from ABR who are an advertiser on this site. I bought a 100W bifold kit that was very well put together (compared to an equivilent 80 and 100W suntech). Very solid unit. Good pricing as well. Absolutely no affiliation outside being a satidfied customer.

ABR

Cheers Mick.

xcat,
you say: "everyone has a way different opinion on what's needed,
i have found the most helpful people to be ***** they seem to have all the answers and they also have stock, most places dont have stock at the moment "

How did you figure out who was giving you the correct information, if as you say "everyone has a way different opinion" ?

What are the questions you need answers for ??
