SolarWorld Sunmodule Plus SW285 Mono Solar Panel Review

Tested For Heavy Loads

With a maximum load capacity of up to 8500 Pa (178 psf), SolarWorld Sunmodules are designed to withstand heavy accumulations of snow and ice.

Plus Sorting Certified

Plus‑Sorting guarantees highest system efficiency. SolarWorld only delivers modules that have greater than or equal to the nameplate rated power. The positive power tolerance guarantees utmost system efficiency. Only modules achieving or exceeding the designated nominal power in performance tests are dispatched. The power tolerance ranges between -0 Wp and +5 Wp.

High Quality Textured Glass

Optimized surface structure: The proprietary surface coatings and granular texture of the Sunmodule’s front glass create two effects: the reduction of the light reflected from the outside (air-glass interface) and the internal trapping of the light reflected from the solar cells in the module (light-trapping). These two effects combine to make an extremely efficient and high performance PV module.

1000 VDC Validation Tested

The certification to international standards provides additional assurance that SolarWorld solar panels are suitable for use in systems with greater than 600 Vdc string voltage.

PID Free

Potential induced degradation (PID) is a phenomenon where the power output of a solar module is reduced when exposed to high negative voltage bias between the cells and ground. PID can potentially affect the performance of individual modules as well as the overall power output and efficiency of an entire solar power generating system. SolarWorld Sunmodules have been certified as PID free by 3rd party laboratories.

TÜV Power Controlled

The TÜV Rheinland “Power Controlled” inspection mark guarantees that an independent test provider certifies that the power ratings specified for our solar panels are maintained and regularly monitored. The performance of our solar panels exhibits a mere 2 percent measuring tolerance. No other manufacturer can claim such precise performance.

Made In America

As the largest U.S. solar manufacturer for more than 35 years, SolarWorld is uniquely recognized as America’s solar leader. They meticulously carry out the most important steps in the solar production process on U.S. soil—from sourcing and manufacturing to assembling and hiring.

They source only the highest-quality components and materials from reputable and proven American suppliers.
