Design

All the solar panels from SolarWatt use monocrystalline cells. These cells have an efficiency of 16 to 20%. Solar panels made using polycrystalline cells can only achieve an efficiency of 12 to 16%.

SolarWatt solar panels use the glass-glass designed. It comprises of an anti-reflective tempered glass top panel that is 2mm thick. At the bottom, there is another tempered glass panel that 2 mm thick. The use of glass-to-glass ensures that the solar panels are more durable compared to glass-foil panels.

Durability

Due to the glass-glass design, SolarWatt panels are safe from Potential Induced Degradation. In the standard glass-foil design, pressure on the top of the solar panel due to wind, hail, and other harsh conditions causes the solar panel to flex. The result is that some solar cells are damaged over time, which will reduce the output of the panel.

Besides that, the glass-glass design makes the Solar Watt solar panels more resistant to acid rain, aggressive gases, salt-mist from the sea, abrasion due to sandstorms and warn-cold cycles. Consequently, they are the perfect solar panels for Australia’s harsh weather.

Efficiency

SolarWatt panels utilize monocrystalline cells, which achieve an efficiency of up to 20% under perfect conditions. In real-world use, you can attain an efficiency of close to 19%, which is amongst the highest in the solar industry. The efficiency of the panels is maintained in even the most extreme temperature conditions.

Better Performance Guarantee

In standard solar panels, an initial loss of 2% in performance is expected in the first year. However, SolarWatt offers a guarantee of a loss of less than 0.35% in the first year. The guarantee places SolarWatt solar panels within the top 3 solar panel performance guarantee in the world.

The Warranty Terms – SOLARWATT Has the BEST WARRANTY in the INDUSTRY

SolarWatt solar panels come with a 30-year guarantee, which is five years longer than the longest warranty currently on offer in Australia. The 30-year standard warranty is three times longer than the norm, which is 10 years. What is unique is that their warranty is all-inclusive; it covers the product warranty and the performance warranty.

Thus, if your solar system is stolen or it is damaged by the weather, the company will compensate you in full. Additionally, if the solar panels do not deliver the promised output, SolarWatt promises to do a complete replacement of the solar panels. Thus far, no other company in Australia has matched the warranty terms offered by SolarWatt.
