SOLAR 101

There is so much information that exists around solar, and with solar becoming more and more available to the consumer and for DIY projects, understanding how it works is a big first step to having your own solar project. Solar 101 is a series of videos that will go over many concepts in a very basic way which is perfect for people just starting to learn about solar.

SOLAR PANELS

Solar Panels in the basic sense work by converting available sunlight into usable electricity. The way we define this power is by watts. Watts are made up of amps and volts. Different panels have different ratings for amps and volts, and it is helpful to understand what these numbers mean when you are looking at a system. You can imagine amps as the amount of electrons, and the voltage the amount of pressure pushing those electrons.

ENERGY AND POWER

One of the most important concepts to understand when sizing a system or figuring out how much your panel produces is Energy and Power. Below you will be able to find a description about each along with some examples.

SERIES AND PARALLEL

This section will go into more depth on series, parallel and series-parallel connections. The purpose of this section is to explain why certain connections are utilized, how to set up to your desired connection, as well as going over what is the most beneficial connection to utilize based on your situation.

CHARGE CONTROLLER TYPES

This section will go over charge controller types and their purpose. We will look at the benefits of each controller and why one is better in a certain situation that another. We will also look at sizing different kinds of controllers. The charge controller is an essential component to every off-grid system. In fact, we do not recommend using an off-grid system unless you have a controller, and there are a lot of good reasons why. Charge controllers generally come in PWM and MPPT.

Whether you are new to solar power systems or want to brush up on your knowledge of solar panels, Renogy's FAQ is a great place to find information on solar basics. We offer answers to questions on general topics, panels, off-grid applications, and on-grid applications.

We have nominal 12V and 24V panels.  These panels actually produce 20+V and 30+V, respectively.  Whether it will work with a 12V, 24V, and 48V will depend on the controller that you use.  All the controllers we offer will work with 12/24V systems.  The MidNite Classic controllers will work with 48V systems.
Framed/Rigid panels 10w-150w (mono and poly) is 25 Year Transferable Power Output Warranty and 5 Year Material & Workmanship Warranty.

Framed/Rigid panels 240w-300w (mono and poly) is 25 Year Transferable Power Output Warranty and 10 Year Material and Workmanship Warranty.

Lightweight panel 50w & 100w is 3 Year Material Warranty
The panel will produce its rated output under STC (Solar Test Conditions).  STC are Temperature = 25 degrees Celsius, Insolation (Sun Radiation) = 1000W/m^2, Air Mass = 1.5.  Under conditions, other than these it will not necessarily produce its rated output.
We recommend cleaning the solar panels on a weekly or bi-weekly basis in order to keep their performance high.
