Higher Efficiency

Renogy uses an anti-reflective, low iron-tempered glass on top, with a high transparency of up to 91.5%. Compared with conventional solar panels, it allows more direct sunlight to be converted to electrical power.

Reliable & Durable

This Renogy solar panel is made of advanced encapsulation material with multi-layered sheet laminations to protect cells from physical damage or distortion, improving cell performance and providing lasting solar panel durability.

Pre-Drilled Holes for Easy Installation

Comes with pre-drilled holes, including ground mounting holes for fast and convenient installation. Compatible with Renogy Z Brackets, Corner Brackets, Pole Mounts and Tilt Mounts.

IP65 Junction Box

Complete protection against environmental particles and low-pressure water jets.

IP67 Solar Connectors

No need to worry about bad weather. These IP67 waterproof solar connectors ensure that the water and dust will not enter the connector during extended outdoor use. Effectively preventing water from seeping in. Perfect for your yacht and marine applications.

Rugged Aluminum Frame

Corrosion-resistant aluminum frame design with sturdy corner supports, ensures that it endures the outdoors for an extended period of time without damage or loss of performance.

100 Watt 12 Volt Monocrystalline Solar Panel Datasheet
1. What equipment does an off-grid solar system require?
 
Here’s a list of all the equipment required for a functioning off-grid solar system: Solar panels, Solar charge controller, inverter(s), battery, mounting and racking system, wiring cables and fuses.
2. Why are my solar panels underproducing?
 
The performance of a solar panel may be hindered for a number of reasons. Most commonly environmental conditions, such as indirect sunlight, temperature rise, cloudy sky, and dirt and stain build up on the top glass, which can lead to a lower efficiency.
3. How can I connect solar panels to my electrical circuit (series vs parallel)?
 
Solar panels can be connected in series or in parallel to meet your electrical circuit size and power demands. In series: the operating voltage output adds up, while the system current output is the same as that of one panel. In parallel: the operating current output will add up, while the system voltage output will be the same as the output of one solar panel. To achieve optimum power output and system rating for your power system, you can use both parallel and series connections.
4. How many solar panels do I need?
 
The best way to gauge how many solar panels you need is to understand the power load needed for your system. Power is measured in watts, and the capacity is commonly measured in Watt-hours (multiplying power output in watts by the required number of hours of operation multiplied by a safety factor of 1.5-2). Therefore, it is wise to size your battery bank first based on the minimum required capacity, and then accordingly, decide how much input power and how many panels are needed.
5. Will this panel produce power in overcast conditions?
 
Yes, it will. Made of high-quality materials, this Renogy solar panel still works during cloudy weather conditions. But please note that the power conversion is not as high as on sunny days.
6. Do solar panels require maintenance? Can I wash my solar panels?
 
Generally, solar panels require maintenance because if a lot of dirt or stain piles up on top or in corners, the conversion of sunlight will be affected, resulting in lower efficiency. As for how to clean solar panels, you can use a microfiber cloth, glass cleaner, and water.
