PV Modules Designed and Engineered in Australia for Australian Conditions
Tindo panels are reliable, long-lasting and built tough – it’s a testament to Australian craftsmanship and our commitment to excellence. Designed and engineered in the heart of Australia, Tindo panels are the trusted name in residential and commercial solar solutions.
Choosing your solar panel
Every family and household is different, so it is best to chat with our experienced team about what size solar panel system will best suit your needs. Several factors will come into play, including the size and orientation of your available roof space, your electricity usage habits and, of course, your budget. Many homeowners begin with a 5kW unit, an average-sized system. If this is optimally located, operates at 85% efficiency, and receives an average of 4.5 hours of peak sun daily, the results can be awe-inspiring. The output for a system like this would range from 15kWh per day in winter to over 25kWh in summer.

A fusion of fully tempered glass and a custom 40mm black anodized aluminium frame ensures that the Karra withstands decades of Australian conditions with unwavering strength.
- Performance Prodigy:
With a proven 21% module efficiency, 23.1% cell efficiency, and a minuscule 0.07% cell-to-module loss ratio (as rigorously tested by TUV SUD Korea), the Karra sets the gold standard for energy production.
- Weather Warrior
Built to conquer the harshest conditions, the Karra Series thrives in low-light environments, handles temperature extremes, and scoffs at salt mist, making it ideal for coastal regions.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why are Australian-made solar panels better?
We can list several reasons here. Firstly, it’s great to support local enterprises wherever possible. By manufacturing in Australia, we provide jobs to Australians and contribute positively to the economy. More than that, though, local manufacturing allows us to control every process step. We’ve implemented strict quality control processes because we believe in delivering the best.
In addition, we can look at solar panel failure rates worldwide. The global average sees around 1 in every 1,000 solar panels failing. Tindo Solar panels only fail 1 in every 200,000, making our panels 200 times more reliable than the global average.
Do Tindo Solar panels work for commercial properties?
They certainly do. Our solar panels are built with premium materials, with everything tested thoroughly to ensure they meet our high-quality standards. We offer panels and solar panel systems for both residential homes and commercial properties. As experts in solar energy, our highly- trained solar installers can design and install the right solar system for any commercial property or home.
What type of solar panel do I need?
Tindo solar panels are designed for Australian conditions, so these are an excellent option for your home. We use advanced technology such as ten busbars for lower internal resistance losses. We also use giant M10 solar cells, which make our panels look better and ensure a higher percentage of the panel surface area can generate energy.
Tindo solar panels also feature premium microinverters and optimisers for increased energy output and reliability. Overall, Tindo offers the best types of solar panels on the Australian market, suitable for residential and commercial applications.
How many panels are in a standard solar panel system?
There is no set number of solar panels required on your roof. However, to achieve a certain amount of solar energy generation, you’ll need a certain amount of panels. The number of solar panels required varies depending on your system size, available roof space and energy consumption needs. Our expert solar energy consultants design a system tailored to your needs, and we always ensure you have enough solar panels to meet your energy goals.
What is the warranty on Tindo solar panels?
When you buy Tindo solar panels, you get a generous 25-year warranty. Once upon a time, it was only 12 years, and many manufacturers still offer lower warranties. But the reality is that we’ve tried and tested our solar panel technology for Australian conditions. We know they’re durable and high-performing over many, many years. So, we’ve increased our warranty because we believe you should get at least 25 years of great service from your solar panels.
Is it worth buying more solar panels than I need?
Yes, in many ways, because having more solar than not enough is always better. Ideally, it would help if you had enough solar panels to meet your energy needs at peak consumption levels. It means that you may use less solar energy when you consume less energy.
Some homeowners install solar panels to store more power in their solar battery or export more solar energy to the primary grid. Most electricity retailers offer a feed-in tariff that gives you credit for the solar you ship. It’s worth mentioning that the credit rates aren’t usually high, so we don’t advise installing an extensive solar panel system if your only goal is to export more solar.
Are solar panels tested before sale?
They certainly are. Because our solar panel systems are Australian-made, we have complete control over the manufacturing process. Before leaving the factory, every solar panel passes over 25 quality control checkpoints, so you know you’re getting quality products.
Our materials, such as glass, film and junction boxes, are stress-tested separately. We also use electroluminescence testing, highlighting defaults the naked eye can’t see, such as fingerprints or micro cracks. We then apply flash testing, which mimics the strength of the sun’s rays, ensuring our panels perform efficiently when in action.
Zero-defect Manufacturing: Where quality meets precision
At Tindo, perfection is not an option; it’s a standard. Our Zero-Defect Manufacturing process guarantees that every Tindo panel undergoes rigorous testing at seven predetermined quality checkpoints. If it doesn’t meet our standards, it doesn’t make the cut.

Commitment to Quality: pioneering a clean energy future
We are on a mission to create a solar panel that outshines all others globally. Our commitment to quality is unwavering, demonstrated through:
- Material Mastery
Every component undergoes rigorous testing, from glass to encapsulant, junction boxes to frames. We expose them to real-world conditions to ensure they meet our exacting standards.
- Local Collaboration
While we currently source components from international partners, we are actively collaborating with Australian entrepreneurs and businesses to increase the percentage of locally sourced materials.
Cut the cost of solar in Australia
The best part about solar panel installation is the generous government incentives. There is some uncertainty in the community about whether incentives were phased out after solar became more popular, but this is not true. For an entry-level system of 4kW-5kW, you can still receive an incentive of up to $4,000. These incentives have existed for over 15 years, so you can be confident that if you ever decide to extend your system, you will be able to do so with government assistance. Navigating the paperwork for government incentives can be tricky for first-timers. Luckily, Tindo Solar has had plenty of experience with these documents, and we can help you manage the process from start to finish smoothly.
A simple installation process
To begin the process and help you make sure you’re choosing the right system, we will send a solar contractor to visit your property and assess the site. We will be able to offer advice about the size and location of your panel system and get an idea of how we can approach installation. Many people assume the roof is the only spot for efficient panels, whereas our technicians know that sheds, carports and garage roofs can work well and give you some much-needed extra space. A roof angle between 30˚ and 45˚, depending on orientation, is ideal, and our energy consultants will assess your potential solar sites to deliver the best solar for-home solution in Adelaide.
Some people are concerned with the appearance of solar panels on their roofs. If this is the case, we can use advanced design software to create a three-dimensional image of your system’s appearance on your roof. It’s a great tool to help visualise the final result. After this, we will arrange for the actual installation to be carried out by a Clean Energy Council (CEC) accredited solar installer at a time that suits you. For an average 5kW system, the installation should take approximately one day.
