What can I say but fantastic from start to finish. Speaking to people who know solar rather than just trying to sell solar makes a big difference. Had several quotes before a mate recommended MC electrical and all were about the same but MC actually took time to listen before suggesting what we might need rather than just telling me what I needed. After sales have been brilliant each person I’ve spoken to has been able to help with even my daft questions. Highly recommendread more

Can not recommend MC Electrical highly enough, they are absolutely first class in everything they do!From the highly knowledgeable sales person (Trent) who quoted on the system, to the exceptionally polite and professional installation team (David) and the wonderful post installation/after sales service (Cristy) who followed up to make sure we were happy with everything and there were no issues. These guys aren’t just about getting you to sign up they about providing service throughout. Our internet was down which meant that out Inverter was offline in terms of keeping track of our input/output (there was no issue with the system) and Cristy followed up to make sure there wasn’t an issue. Can not thank the MC Electrical team enough and would 100% recommend them!read more

MC Electrical was great to work with. At every step (sales, order, installation, after sales support) their employees were professional, friendly and communicative. All the people we dealt with went out of their way to ensure that we bought the system that would provide most benefit to us. Their systems may not be the cheapest, but taking into account the service we got and the quality of the products, it was money well spend. Mark's blog is honest and informative. You won't go wrong by following his more

System is far outperforming my expectations. Clearly identified my needs and advised on a really optimal solution. Salesperson, installation team and Mark excellent to deal with. Went over and above assisting me with extra electrical work I requested for an electric car charger at a fraction of the cost other installers had quoted. Would recommend to more

From the initial consultation all the way through to the final connection of our solar system, MC Electrical were incredibly responsive and informative with all aspects of our system. I could not recommend them highly enough. If you're looking for a company who is professional, timely and informed by the latest industry standards, MC Electrical is the more

I've had a very positive experience with MC Solar & Electrical. The sales team were very thorough, reviewing my energy bills and house to design the perfect system. The installation was seamless and the installers were super considerate of keeping noise levels to a minimum when my noise-sensitive son was home during the morning. The after-sales service was also amazing, checking in with me immediately after the install to make sure I was happy with the service. All in all I would highly recommend MC Solar & Electrical. They truly are a premium installer and you absolutely get what you pay more

I did a lot of reviews and got a few quotes for systems. Throughout the sales processes, MC Electrical was honest and realistic about the system I needed and offered me clear insight into their thinking and my household circumstances. I ended up going with them for the following reasons:Mark's Blog -  he really understands solar and offers honest advice, Their longevity  in the marketplace - They only do solar and have done it for a long timeTheir warranty - they cover what they sell wellStaff - Everyone I spoke too and eventually worked with has truly being amazing to work with and all seem to love their company.The install too was faultless with a full team of around 6 working effectively to place the panels in the morning. I also required a meter box upgrade and they looked after everything to the highest of standards.I've had the system installed for 8 months now and could not be happier. MC Electrical have a great after sales team who even dealt with my questions mainly around understand and using the software and meter reading so I could better understand how to get the most from the system. Very patience and knowledge.I've just got my second quarter bill from my system and it's gone for $860 same time last year to $27read more

Excellent service and communication. We found the big difference between MC Electrical was that, unlike most solar providers who would try to dictate what you need without considering your circumstances, MC Electrical will listen to your needs and offer a system that will align to those needs. Another major plus is the aftermarket service. MC Electrical are available to ensure your system is running smoothly and answer any pay sales questions you may have. We speed around apt and found these guys are the best and we couldn't more highly recommend more

After getting numerous quotes amongst the haze of Solar options I settled on MC Electrical. From the start MC Electrical have been down to earth, honest, professional and so far, their after install service and support has been excellent. No upsell, clear in what I needed and willing to listen. Not the cheapest but definitely good value for money. I would recommend having a chat with the team for your Solar more

From the consultation to installation and after service, MC Solar & Electrical has been professional and without any hassles at all. I am very happy with the whole team every step of the way. Excellent communication and follow up. They are very thorough and explained everything clearly to me and even showed some examples poor workmanship ( we spotted our neighbor had one example they explained!)You might find a lower quote with another retail/installers, but I highly recommend the peace of mind that comes with premium quality products and services with them because solar is a long term investment and over the course of 10-20+ years it is just not worth the uncertainty and hassle to save a few dollars. Arrange a meeting with them and you'll see first hand!read more

From the initial contact, MC Electrical were professional and supportive. They provided information and guidance on a system that would meet our Solar objectives and budget. They were not pushy or making assumptions that they knew better what we needed.They listened to our requirements and objectives and worked with us to install a high quality solution. They also coordinated installation of the panel railings with a roof restoration, well before the panels were ready for installation. This helped to ensure the integrity of our roof paint membrane and reduced potential damage to tiles. The follow-up service to keep us informed of every step, and coordinating with our electricity provider has been great. I highly recommend MC Electrical for their service, knowledge and more

high quality products, incredible customer service and support. They came to our house to inspect the site and have a chat to understand our energy needs to make a tailor made quote. Their presentation was extremely detailed and we felt confident in their support from day one. One month after installation and the support is still there in helping choosing the provider with the best deal on the market. Worth every cent. Thank you Mc Electrical!read more

Very happy with MC Electrical. They provided a quality system at a really good price. Loved the amount of information that have on their website and the obvious passion and knowledge displayed by the owner and staff. There is a lot of information on the internet about solar and it is very difficult for a consumer to interpret what is there and apply that to what they need. Jaime from MC Electrical spent a lot of time with us to help match us with the right combination of products to come up with a system that we could afford and that would meet our needs. I feel confident that we will have a great system, that will last us for many years, that will significantly reduce our energy costs and that will be backed up by great support. Thanks Jaime and MC more

Which solar panels are right for me?

Choosing the right solar panels for your Brisbane home shouldn’t be so hard.

I’ve spent the last 13 years installing solar panels around Brisbane. In that time we have:

  • Tested 30 different solar panels on the roof of our Brisbane warehouse.
  • Visited 5 different solar panel factories around the world.
  • Written 10 different articles on solar panel research

And now, we have settled on two solar panel brands for our Brisbane solar panel installations. Sunpower and Q CELLS.

Choose quality

At MC Electrical, we install quality through and through. This is our starting point. Solar panels are a long term investment, not a quick fix consumable. We’re installing solar panel systems to last 25 years. It’s economically and environmentally irresponsible to expect less. So how did we settle on Q CELLS and Sunpower solar panels?

Ask anyone in the Brisbane Solar Panel industry which solar panels are the best on the market. Most professionals will tell you Sunpower and LG. For a long time, both panels had held their position as the industry’s best solar panels, until recently when LG withdrew from the solar market, leaving Sunpower the hands down winner for premium solar panels world wide, but especially in Brisbane.

Ask again which are the next best solar panels, the majority would say Q CELLS and REC.

Q CELLS Solar Panels Brisbane

 I wasn’t always a fan of Q CELLS.

In 2017, we had REC solar panels as part of our Brisbane solar panel offering. I visited the REC factory in Singapore and was impressed with their manufacturing process. However, it didn’t take long until I began to have concerns about their supply channels and their limited presence in Australia. Then after continual feedback from our installers, I became increasingly concerned about the REC build quality. I started looking around and my reading steered me to Q CELLS.


Q CELLS assured me they were different. Instead of just talking about it, they put their money where their mouth was and invited myself and my operations manager Ryan to their factory in South Korea.

Fair to say, Ryan and I were blown away with the level of automation and the advanced technology behind their South Korean solar panel factory.

When we arrived back in Brisbane, we began looking deeper into Q CELLS. Particularly their Solar Panel research and development team. I sent Ben (our Solar designers/estimator) to meet the Q CELLS Engineers in Germany.

Feedback from our installers and warehouse manager kept flooding in saying Q CELLS was the best built panel they have ever seen. I began to understand that Q CELLS is really in a league of their own. Q CELLS Solar panels don’t just hold a premium place in the Brisbane Solar panel market, they are the leaders in solar panel research and development.

The three main issues with solar panels technology in the last 10 years were discovered and solved by QCELLS. Their German engineers documented and solved them before anyone else on the market even knew they were an issue.

  • LID: Light-induced degradation
  • PID: Potential induced degradation
  • And most recently LETID

Q CELLS can be therefore defined as industry leading, not industry following.

But the acronym that you’ll be more interested in is LCOE

What is LCOE?

Q CELLS is all about LCOE or the Levelized Cost Of Energy.

The Levelized Cost Of Energy is a fancy industry term meaning “bang for buck”. The bang, in this scenario, means they need to perform well for 25 years. The buck means you are not paying 20 per cent more for an extra 3 per cent production.

So Q CELLS chose the affordable “P-Type” silicone to make their solar panel cells. The majority of entry-level panels use P-Type silicone because of its affordability. However, P-Type silicone has two main disadvantages over the more expensive N-Type silicone: efficiency and degradation. Instead of switching for the more expensive N-Type silicone, Q CELLS solved the P-Type problem.

  • Q CELLS has the most efficient P-Type silicone solar panels in the world. This means you have higher wattage (330W) on a smaller framed panel using affordable PType technology.
  • Q CELLS discovered, solved, and minimised the degradation issues surrounding P-Type before anybody else. This means you can rest assured that your panels will not degrade as quickly as other panels.

The above combined factors make Q CELLS the panel with the best mix of quality price. Their commitment to R&D, their industry leading approach to design, their superior production facility, all at an affordable end price point, made the choice easy.

Our second solar panel offering is Sunpower: the worlds best solar panel.

Sunpower Solar Panels Brisbane

If you are the type of Brisbane homeowner that just wants the best solar panels money can buy, then Sunpower Maxeon panels are the obvious choice.

Which Sunpower solar panel?

I can’t overstate the fact that Sunpower P-Series panels are not the Same as Maxeon panels. I’ve been to both the Sunpower Maxeon factory in Mexico and the Sunpower P Series factory in China. As a result of this visit, and other reasons, we no longer and will never again sell Sunpower P Series panels.

However, when it comes to Sunpower Maxeon, nothing else comes close.

Sunpower has a 35-year history of making solar panels different. The integrated back contact and fully copper backed cell brings a level of efficiency durability and performance that is unparalleled in the solar industry. The most adventurous solar pioneers use SunPower’s Maxeon cell to set world records on land air and sea.

What do Sunpower Maxeon panels do differently?

  • They use N-Type silicone (also used by LG and some REC panels).
  • They put the “busbars” on the back of the cell, which allows more sunlight to hit the cell (also done by some LG panels).
  • The “Maxeon” solar cell technology uses a copper base, which makes the cell significantly more durable than any other solar cell. This is unique to Sunpower and the reason Sunpower Maxeon solar cells are used by likes of NASA, Solar Powered Yachts, the Solar Impulse Plane, and the World Solar Car Challenge.
  • The Maxeon copper backing also draws heat away from the front of the cell, allowing the cell to run cooler and more efficiently.

What this means for you

  • If you want to get the most power possible on your roof space, Sunpower is the obvious choice. Maxeon 3 panels are massive 400 watts. However, their more affordable Maxeon 2 solar panels are still a huge 350W and 360w.
  • If your Brisbane home is your “forever home,” then you can rest assured that the Maxeon cell will not fracture or crack in hail storms, or whatever else our harsh Brisbane climate throws at them.
  • You’ll pay a little more upfront, but you’ll get that back in performance. Sunpower produces more power for longer thanks to their industry-leading 0.25 per cent degradation per year.

Choosing panels is hard work. It took 11 years of that hard work to form my opinion on the best solar panels we could offer our clients.

If you are looking for a mix of quality and price, you’ll find that in Q CELLS.

If you are looking for the best panel on earth, Sunpower is the solar panel for your Brisbane home.
