PhotoVoltaic Solar Panels (On/Off-Grid)

SunPower – The World’s Standard for Solar
SunPower’s products hold the world record for energy production. And SunPower® solar panels are the world’s most efficient: up to 50 per cent more energy than conventional panels. If you want to use to the max your roof top look no further!! Recommend 315W SunPower® Maxeon™ panel – SPR-315E-WHT.

Transparent BIPV – 45% Transparent Double Glass (Blue/Black) for Facade/GreenHouse/Skylight/Tiles
CNSDPV’s products are normal monocrystalline/polycrystalline modules that allow 45% of light to pass through wrapped in 8mm glass. These BIPV are slightly more expensive than normal modules and are TUV certified and thus are eligable for goverment rebates as well. Recomanded: 190Wp Size: 1.58m * 0.808m CNSDPV190(36)S

Borun New Energy – 100MW manufacturer
Company can, on request build custom panels to meet any size and power wattage preferred – Cheap but quality TUV certified mono-crystalline & polycrystalline modules.  Recommend 230W mono-crystalline panel – BRC230W-156M60.

Jinko Solar – 1.5 GW capacity in 2011
Worldwide manufacturer employ more than 10,000 professionals with factories in Shangrao (Jiangxi) and Haining (Zhejiang) covering more than 165 acres. Our Global Marketing Center is located in the modern business area of Pudong, Shanghai. Expanding our international presence by establishing European representative offices in Munich and Bologna, a US office in San Francisco and a logistics warehouse in Rotterdam (in operation since January 2010). IEC, TÜV, UL, VDE, CE, ISO14001 and ISO9001 certified crystalline modules. Recommend cheap 225W polycrystalline panel – JKM225P-60.

Sharp pv systems – already 324 MW in 2004
Sharp was already fascinated by the idea of generating power from sunlight more than 50 years ago. In 2010, they were the #1 producer of PV cells, in terms of revenues. Sharp Solar produces thin film modules and mono and poly-crystalline silicon solar cells. Recommend anything from Sharp but especially best priced 230Wp polycrystalline panel for good efficiency of wattage per space or cheap thin foil 128Wp panel, if space is not an issue and due to better performance at higher temperatures.

Ningxia Yinxing Energy – 300MW manufacturer
This experienced on stock exchange company provides top quality modules – mono-crystalline & polycrystalline. Ningxia Yinxing Energy panels are similar to Borun but come at a slightly higher price but give a little more watt per square meter. Recommend 195W panel – YXGF-195M72.

First Solar – 1,228MW manufacturer
One of the top biggest PV company in the world operating in USA and Germany using cadmium telluride (CdTe) rather than the more common mono / poly. Can be used as building cladding! First Solar are made from thin film material which is less Watt per meter square and are more ideal for large areas like PV farms. Thin film perform better in sun intensive environments. Recommend FS-277 model 77Wp thin foil panel.

Warranty Statement


This Sharp product is warranted against faults in materials and manufacture for a period of 5 years from the date of original purchase.

Additionally, Sharp warrants that if the module displays a power output* of less than 90% of the minimum power output specified in Sharp’s written specifications during the first ten (10) years, or less than 80% during the period time of twenty five (25) years from the date of original purchase, and Sharp determines, at its sole option, that the power output loss is due to faults in materials or manufacture, then Sharp, at its sole discretion, will repair or replace the module to bring the aggregate power output to the warranted percentage of specified minimum power output.

*Rated power output is determined, as a standard, under the test condition of cell temperature of 25 degrees Celsius and irradiance of 1000W per square metre and AM-1.5 spectrum

If service is required during the warranty period, please contact the dealer where the module/ system was originally purchase from.

2. If after the 5 year warranty period, Sharp determines that the module is not providing warranted percentages of specified minimum power output Sharp may at its sole option, use re-manufactured, refurbished or new parts when repairing or replacing a photovoltaic module, to bring the aggregate power output to the warranted percentage of the specified minimum power output. Replaced modules will become the property of Sharp.

3. Please retain your sales documentation, as this should be produced to validate a warranty claim.

4. This warranty is in addition to and in no way limits, varies or excludes any express and implied rights and remedies under any relevant legislation in the country of sale.

Warranty Restrictions and Exclusions

1. The warranty provided does not apply to:

a) Conditions caused by or resulting from installation procedures that do not conform to well accepted and recognised industry standards, or failures in observing the handling method, cautions or warnings given in the installation manuals or similar documents.

b) Conditions arising directly or indirectly from installation in an aero, mobile, or marine environment, war, riots, destruction, fire, explosion, earthquake, storm, typhoon, cyclone, hurricanes, tornado, volcanic action, tidal wave, snowfall, freezing, salt damage, acid rain, power failures, lightening, indirect lightening stroke, flood, damage by insect, animal, land subsidence, crack or landslide, accident, or abnormal environment or pollution, actions of third parties and other events that occur outside of Sharp’s control and not occurring under normal operating conditions, or any phenomena that can not be prevented with the technology available for practical use at time of this warranty.

c) Conditions arising from misuse, negligence, abuse or any human’s intention or fault.

d) Conditions resulting from a defect in components which are not part of Sharp brand photovoltaic module.

e) What does not affect the basic performance and power generating function notwithstanding any external scratch or stain, or natural mechanical wearing which does not represent a defect of Sharp module, corrosion, mould, deterioration, discolouration, and any other factor of similar kind or nature that occurs after delivery of Sharp module, or does not affect the structure, mechanical strength due to slight corrosion.

2. Under no circumstances shall Sharp be liable for any incidental, consequential, or punitive damages, in any possible way, connected or associated with the listed, Sharp brand, Sharp photovoltaic module. This warranty is the owner’s sole and exclusive remedy and Sharp’s maximum liability under this warranty is limited to the retail purchase price of the module.


First Solar, Inc.

First Solar, Inc. is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of thin film photovoltaic (PV) modules, or solar panels, which can convert sunlight to electricity at competitive prices. Using cadmium telluride (CdTe) as a semiconductor instead of the more common crystalline silicon, First Solar’s modules are economical and productive in a variety of temperature and light conditions.

Certification Info:

The Safety Class II @ 1000V is an old certification. All demands of this test are covered by IEC61730 testing. FSEC certificates are only applicable for the installation of the modules in the US .
To create an overall standard for modules the radiation has been fixed on one square meter. With this the conversion to all sizes of modules is possible. The modules are flashed under standard test conditions ( Air mass 1,5, module temperature 20°C, radiation 1000W/m²).
The data from NOCT (Nominal Operating Cell Temperature) is adapted to different environmental conditions ( in this case : FS 45°C, AM1,5 Air mass for mid-europe, radiation 800W/m²).
