About GCL solar panels

With over $20 billion in assets and 20 years of making silicon for solar cells, GCL are BIG. They have also bought into Australia's largest solar wholesaler (One Stop WareHouse) who are a major supplier to us, so we should be nice about what we say. Needless to say they are rated as Tier 1 by Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

The panels are just fine. Typical mainstream offering. A bit cheaper than Canadian or Jinko, mainly because the brand name is less well known.
