245w Suntech Solar Panels
Who are Suntech?
Chinese company, Suntech was founded in 2001 by Dr Shi Zhengrong, a graduate of the University of New South Wales in Australia. Since its launch, the company has gone on to be the largest producer of solar panels in the world. The business has sold an astounding 13 million units worldwide.
Suntech has installed solar panels in some of the most recognisable buildings in the world, including Beijing's National Stadium and the Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, USA. Suntech offer panels ranging in wattage from 180 - 290. However, in this article we will look more closely at the 245w Suntech solar panel.
The 245W Suntech Panel - The Facts
The 245W Suntech solar panel uses the company's high performance Pluto cells which are specifically designed to reduce shading on their surface and maximise the absorption of sunlight. This means they are up to 10-15% more efficient than standard solar panels. The 245W panels are also engineered to work in low light conditions.
Suntech boasts that this particular panel is up to 15% more efficient in low light conditions than similar solar panels on the market. This means that they could generate 15% more electricity on overcast days, or in the morning or evening when the light is sparse.
The solar panels are also strong and can withstand extreme weather conditions. Strong winds and heavy snowfall will not be sufficient to cause any damage. The panels are also unlikely to be affected by rain as they have a special drainage system which drains water away from the panels before it gets a chance to affect them adversely. This also removes the possibility of water freezing on the panels in the winter months which can block light hitting the panel surface.
Suntech states that the panels have passed all the industry's approved loading tests.
The Suntech Warranty - 25 Years
Suntech back up their claims on the 245w panels with an impressive guarantee. They guarantee that the panels will be at least 80% as effective after 25 years as they were when they were new. Suntech claim that this is over 5% more than other solar panel manufacturers are prepared to offer. The company also offers a 5 year warranty on the installation of the 245w solar panels.
Potential buyers of the solar panels will be impressed with the 25 year guarantee, especially as the Feed In Tariff scheme which pays British solar panel owners for the electricity they create also lasts for 25 years.
Suntech believe they have produced a high performance solar panel in their 245w model. They have used advanced technology to produce the most efficient solar panel on the market. The panels are designed to convert as much light into electricity as possible even in times where light may be limited. They are strong and durable and can withstand extreme weather conditions.
Suntech are the market leaders in solar panel production and, if their claims are true, they have proved it with the 245w model.
