Do Risen solar panels live up to the name?
All of a sudden, it feels like Risen solar panels are being offered everywhere. Consistently a BNEF Tier-1 solar panel manufacturer, Risen Energy has recently become a global top 3 manufacturer by volume Q1 2019 (Update: 6th Q2 2019). Irrelevant to product quality, this does tick the box that 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 following six forms. There is a fairly generalist nature to most. However, we’ve done our best to be as informative as possible.

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. 325W vs 275W) the surface area occupied on the roof face is identical to a 60-cell solar panel of the same efficiency class, 16.8%.
In short, these 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. If an abundance of space is available, then taking advantage of the more economical polycrystalline variants is a good option.
In saying that, Risen monocrystalline variants, ideal for limited areas to maximise output from the available space, aren’t too much more expensive.
Expansive rooftops can consider:
Limited rooftops should consider:
Don’t be fooled by certain marketing exploitations when it comes to mono vs poly by the same manufacturer. The overall product quality is the same. Same back sheet, same glass, same warranty, the cell structure is slightly different, which affects efficiency. A difference which reflects the in price.
What is the warranty?
A slightly better than average 12 & 25-year manufacturer warranty. In what is becoming the new edge, many manufacturers are shifting to a 12 & 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.
Where are Risen solar panels made?
Headquartered in Ningbo China, Risen Energy produced solar panels in multiple facilities across China. The most modern being a new 5GW solar cell and module manufacturing plant in Changzhou City which opened January 2018 to accommodate the new multi busbar and half-cut cell module designs.

- Porto-Novo, The Republic of Benin (West Africa).
- Mexico City, México.
- Bangalore, India.

What do they cost?

- 3kW: $1990 – $3990 AUD.
- 6kW: $2490 – $5990 AUD.
- 10kW: $5990 – $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.
