Top Customer Reviews
- I started with two, then four, and bought the 2 pcs set last spring/summer. Now, going to add another two.
- Running as a 36v system (series-series-parallel) and works awesome. When I get the next two...will wire them 48v
- During max sun last summer (with six panels) hit 30 amps, 430 watts (according to my Midnite Solar Kid SCC)
- Pretty much the best "bang for your buck" on the market for building your array
- Mc4 connections are a great idea, but had to "shave" off the locks to pull apart. A watertight screw-in connection would be better
- Delivery is fast and packaging excellent
- Modified the Z brackets and expanded mounting holes on panels to accept Grade 5 1/2" bolts...much stronger
- Included hardware for mounting Z brackets is adequate, but not up to my standards
- Shooting for a 1KW in panels (10 panels) for my system. If I had to do it over again, I would have started with the Renogy 250 watt panels
- Great product, speedy delivery, great packaging, superior power output, Mc4 connections could be better designed
UPDATE: 29 Jan 2015
- Bought two more (eight panels total). Wired them up as a 48v system. Working GREAT! Even though my solar charge controller will only convert 30 amps, having more panels reduces losses during cloudy days and sunrise/sunset angles. With 8 panels, it should be able to produce over 40+ amps. Still going to get two more to have bragging rights of having "One KILOWATT of power". Yeh, got the solar bug. But it is so cool upgrading and seeing immediate improvement!
UPDATE: 16 Mar 2015
- Up to 10 panels (1 KW). Redid my whole solar power station setup. I converted my battery bank to 24v and purchased a pure sine wave inverter (Outback Power VFX 3524). I also had to buy a new Midnite Solar Classic 150 solar charge controller. Spent some money on this but, it is soon going to power circuits in my house! I am now able to increase my solar panel totals to 25 panels with the new equipment. The 10 panels I have now are wired for 60v (two strings of five). Higher voltage with the MPPT technology is awesome! Saw 750 watts the other day.
UPDATE: 26 Mar 2015
- Now have 12 Renogy 100-D panels wired for 72v. I also managed to score three Sunpower E20 435-watt panels. Total solar panel array wattage is now 2,500 watts. Inverter is wired into the house using a transfer panel. Got my first electric bill after all this new stuff. It was 50% less than last month!
I utilized Victron equipment for the rest of the install and absolutely love the results.
My system consists of the following main components:
2 - Victron Multiplus 12/3000/120-50
Victron Blue Solar charge controller MPPT 150/85
15 - 100 watt Renogy solar panels
Victron Color control gx
Victron BMV-702 battery monitor
4 - 1000Ah LifePO4 Winston battery cells
- Hooked up series-series-parallel (24v)
- 100' PV cable run using 10 AWG cable
- MPPT charger (Tracer 30 amp) with meter
- Three true deep cycle marine batteries connected in parallel with 1 gauge cable
- Power Bright 3500 watt inverter
I can send you a picture or two...just let me know. As for the panels, they are extremely efficient and when wired correctly work very well.
- Great build quality
- Quick delivery
- 100w + output in full Oklahoma sun
- 25 year warranty
- Rated for 1" hail at 52 MPH
- Had to drill out mounting holes to fit 3/8" bolts
- MC4 connectors are okay, but had to file the clips down to get cable connections to separate
- Renogy Z brackets work well, but had to expand the holes to fit larger mounting bolts. Expensive brackets...but worth it
- Had to use a DVM to make these solar panels to work in a series...once figured out which cable goes where...it worked great. There are diodes inside the solar panels that will steer the voltages the correct way...if not, they will not work as well.
- In my configuration, the Tracer meter is reading 40v coming down from the array at 20 amps. Rough math (using 24v scale) that equates to 480 watts. So, during full sun, I am getting 120 watts per panel.
- When MPPT charger has batteries fully charged, it goes into "boost" mode. Current from the panels drops and only produces power enough to run stuff off the inverter. This is cool!
- The panel cables look like 12 AWG into the MC4 connectors. For cable lengths 50' or more, use 10 AWG PV solar cable. Glad I am...almost no loss of voltage over my 100' run.
- I was a certified electronics technician for 21 years in the military and now testing the solar waters. From my initial experience with these solar panels, I can say I am truly amazed at their output. Once I figured out how to properly connect these in a series-series-parallel configuration, they proved exceptional. I plan to get two more because now I have the "solar bug" and want to maximize my setup closer to it's 30 amp rating. Buy them. You will pull out your credit card and will buy more!
*UPDATE (15 APR 04) I now have six panels. They are wired series-series-series-parallel and work wonderfully. At full sun I am pulling 30+ amps from the sun and into my battery bank. The dawn/dusk output is much better...as it should be. I am maxed out for now and my system is complete.
*UPDATE (13 May 04) Still running excellent. I pulled 34 amps (according to my meter) during full Oklahoma sun. My calculations are 34 amps x 24 volts = 816 watts. Awesome. That is about 136 watts PER panel. That power is used to charge my six deep cycle batteries...which in turn power my 3,500 watt DC-AC inverter. Digging the free power from the sky!
*UPDATE (28 May 04)
*UPDATE (12 Nov 2014) Bought a Midnite Solar KID solar charge controller. Nice little unit that replaces my Tracer. The Tracer is still good and I still might use it for more panels/batteries. The KID has a built in wattage meter that shows how many watts it is making (along with current). I have the six panels wired into two strings (36v system) and they still put out max current during max sun. However, the actual maximum wattage I ever saw was about 430 watts. Hmmm. That is okay...because the current output is about the same as the Tracer solar charge controller. Also, battery charge time did not change. So, from what I can tell, I am achieving decent power production with these Renogy 100 watt panels.
