The SolarWorld SW 230 Mono Solar Panel is Made in the USA
Solar World solar panels are made in the USA and are manufactured to the highest standards of quality, performance and durability.

Their performance warranty includes "plus-sorting" ensuring your SolarWorld solar panels produce the same or up to 5% better than the rated wattage.

World-Class Quality
High-quality, high performance, and high reliability - the Sunmodule Plus® is designed and built for long-term yield stability and ease of use.

Flash Report Data
Every module is factory flashed at standard test conditions (STC) to determine the power output and then sorted in 5 watt increments. Only modules with a flashed power that is greater than or equal to the nameplate rated power is delivered. Flash report data is provided with every order.

Sunbox Junction Box
The proven design of the patented low profile Sunbox junction box, has been installed on over 4,000,000 modules. Integrated by-pass diodes and sealed welded connections ensure reliability and eliminate failures resulting from exposure to the elements. The molded fins on the exterior housing dissipate heat quickly to maximize power output.

Extremely Robust Package
The patented box channel frame design provides extraordinary stiffness in bending and torsion. The laminate with 4mm glass is set deep in the frame channel and secured with precision applied adhesive. The frame is assembled by press fit to maximize strength and longevity. The result is an extremely robust package that can be mounted in any orientation and can withstand static loads of up to 113 psf. SolarWorld provides a 5-year workmanship warranty* and 25-year linear performance guarantee*
