Tindo Solar has opened a solar panel manufacturing plant in the Adelaide Technology Park adjacent to the University of Adelaide’s Mawson Lakes Campus.

The company expects to be able to match the price of Chinese solar panels, while providing better safety and design features, through greater automation and efficiency.

Tindo Solar will use Q-Cells solar cells in its panels.

Each panel will include a micro-inverter to generate 240 volt AC current rather than the DC current generated by most solar panels.
