SolarWatt Glass on Glass solar panelsDurable and dependable
SOLARWATT glass on glass solar panels are available on the Sunshine Coast and in Brisbane & Gympie from SunWorks solar power installers.
In 1998, Germany’s SOLARWATT introduced the world’s first glass on glass panels. The company now exclusively manufacture glass on glass panels and won the Silver Medal in the “Product of the Year 2019” Competition, aside from numerous other recent awards.
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 hot-spots 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 panels 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:
When standard panels are stressed most commonly due to mishandling, 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 panels are 100% made in Germany by a German company – they are not “German designed” or “German engineered” both of which are meaningless terms generally used to promote inferior products.
SOLARWATT solar power panels have a 30 year performance guarantee and a 30 year product warranty – this is 3 times the industry standard! Read more about Australian warranty conditions.
