A top 10 BNEF Tier-1 solar panel manufacturer by volume (Update: Q4, 2020), Risen Energy is fast becoming synonymous with modern high-efficiency module designs while 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.

Which to avoid?

As a residential homeowner, avoiding 72-cell solar panels is in most instances recommended. 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 to the roof structure.

It is important to remember that despite the appealing higher watt class of a 72-cell/144 half-cell solar panel (e.g. 440W vs 370W) the surface area occupied on the roof face is identical to a 60-cell/120 half-cell solar panel of the same efficiency class.

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.

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, 15, being product integrity guaranty. While the second figure, 25, references the annual performance degradation guarantee should your selected Risen solar panels remain intact.

Which is ideal for you?

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.
