Solarwatt LogoSOLARWATT glass on glass solar panels

In 1998 SOLARWATT introduced the world’s first glass on glass solar panels and they now exclusively manufacture glass on glass solar panels. In 2016 SOLARWATT released the first ever 300 watt glass on glass panel and they are now the market leader in Germany and Europe.

The main advantage of glass on glass is very simple, glass does not age, breakdown or chemically change over time. The outer 2mm thick glass layer reliably prevents water and oxygen from reaching the high performance PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) solar cells and they are also protected from salt spray and ammonia. The use of glass on both the upper and lower sides guarantees maximum solar cell protection as cell fractures and damaging hotspots are prevented.

Most standard solar panels have glass on the front that is 3mm thick – by using glass that is only 2mm thick SOLARWATT panels remain cooler in hot temperatures which increases solar power production during the summer months. The glass is also treated with anti-reflective treatments which also increases production by up to 4.5%.

SOLARWATT glass on glass solar panels are have successfully passed the “large hailstone test” which used 45mm hailstones instead of the standard 25mm. This ensure they can and do withstand Australian conditions.

Why glass on glass in superior to standard solar panels:

Solarwatt glass on glass benefits

When standard solar panels are stressed most commonly due to mis-handling, fractures or micro-cracks in the solar cells occur this permanently reduces the amount of power the solar panel can produce. A SOLARWATT panel can only bend along the neutral axis and the cells are not stretched or compressed as a result solar cell fractures cannot occur.

SOLARWATT solar panels are 100% made in Germany – they are not “German designed” or “German engineered” both of which are meaningless terms generally used to promote inferior products.

SOLARWATT solar panels have a 30 year performance guarantee and a 30 year product warranty – this is 3 times the industry standard!

5 Star Review - The Sun WorksRecently Sun Works put a 5 kW Fronius inverter and 20 REC panels on our house. This was recommended after a site visit and various options were canvassed. Within a week of this visit the work was done – old panels removed, new ones put up and the inverter connected to our supplier. Paperwork took five minutes and our iPad app was connected to the inverter so we could be gratified about what we we making each day. None of this would be possible without Sun Works great team – Mike, Peter and Wayne, not forgetting their hardworking panel installers crawling over and under the roof. Each man is a expert and a pleasure to deal with personally, by email or on the phone. You might think all this ‘over the top’ but this is the third house Sun Works have done for us. This speaks volumes for these men and their company – 100% satisfaction guaranteed. Thank you once again!
