Do Risen solar panels live up to the name?

A top 5 BNEF Tier-1 solar panel manufacturer by volume (Update: Q2, 2020), Risen Energy is fast becoming synonymous with modern high efficiency module designs offering exceptional value. Even though the BNEF module tiering system is irrelevant to product quality, this does tick the box that strong demand exists for a reputable product in the industry at the price point. With that in mind, there are Risen solar panels homeowners should avoid.

Commonly asked questions in the initial phases of research, when considering Risen as a solar panel option, often come in the above six forms. There is a fairly generalist nature to most. However, we’ve done our best to be as informative as possible to assist with an informed buying decision.

Which to avoid?

As a residential homeowner, avoiding 72-cell solar panels is a must. Severely inhibited, the mounting systems ability to support the additional weight (especially on tiled roofs) to that of where 60-cell solar panels reign supreme, spreading the load over more frequent supports.

It is important to remember that despite the appealing higher watt class of a 72-cell solar panel (e.g. 415W vs 330W) the surface area occupied on the roof face is identical to a 60-cell solar panel of the same efficiency class.

In short, many of the above are bigger, heavier panels designed for industry and grid-scale projects with greater reinforced support to the underlying structure in which they are mounted to.

Which to consider?

The great news is that the current Risen solar panel offerings are limited in model variances so it can be easier to narrow down which particular model is right for you. 

However, don’t be fooled by certain marketing exploitations when it comes to the overall Wattage of a solar panel. The solar panels in most instance are very similar, simply different module dimensions due to cell variances.

Residential 60-Cell (120 – 132 half-cell):

Current
Siéger RSM120 (330-355W)

The above table identifies that the above Risen solar panels will occupy an almost identical surface area to achieve the same desired generation capacity.

What is the warranty?

In Australia, a better than average 15 & 25-year manufacturer warranty. In what is becoming the new edge, many manufacturers are shifting to a 15 & 25-year warranty as opposed to a 10 & 25-year warranty to assist the definition of better product quality.

The two figures within the warranty can easily be explained as the first figure, 12, being product integrity guaranty. While the second figure, 25, references the annual performance degradation guarantee should the Risen solar panel remain intact.

What do they cost?

Like any solar panel system, variances in cost is derived from system size to installation compatibility and inverter selection.

  • 3kW: $2490 – $3990 AUD.
  • 6kW: $2990 – $5990 AUD.
  • 10kW: $6990 – $9990 AUD.

Use the above prices as a guide only, and always consult a professional for a site-specific evaluation or quote to determine which product pairing is ideal for your scenario.

Same technology, however, different dimensions affect the overall module wattage. A greater wattage potentially won’t justify additional expense if the surface area occupied is the same. Save with PSW’s current Risen 330W Jäger system specials!
