Risen Solar Panels Powering the Merredin Solar Farm with blue sky on the horizon

Risen solar panels are the module of choice used within Western Australia’s iconic Merredin Solar Farm, a national utility-scale leader in production output. However, to determine which Risen solar panels are ideal for your project, greater insight is essential—the researched investor you want the Risen Energy facts, less the spin. Your focus is energy security when choosing a particular solar panel, and five essential elements deliver a better general insight to reassure a solar energy investment decision.


Pros & cons

Most will consider whether Risen solar panels are a BNEF Tier-1 ranked module brand. Even though such ranking offers little insight into individual product quality, the Bloomberg New Energy Finance module tiering system provides manufacturer bankability rankings for large-scale solar projects assisting warranty assurance for financiers. As it turns out, this is advantageous for rooftop solar module purchasers when considering brand strength and long-term warranty validity.

The sixth most voluminous BNEF Tier-1 solar panel manufacturer (Q1, 2023, 39 companies listed), Risen Energy is fast becoming synonymous with modern high-efficiency module designs while offering exceptional value. However, broader research is required to know which particular Risen solar panels are ideal for your rooftop solar project.

Which to consider

Even though Risen have many module variations, most currently available in Perth can be refined to one base residential module variant. From here, higher Watt solar panels are merely achieved by adding more cells and, in turn, increasing weight and loading on the structure beneath. Ensuring a solar panel weighing 20-21 kG is a good measure of discerning the module difference if sizes become confusing.
