The best solar panel technology around
Suntech uses polycrystalline technology for its STP 210 solar cells providing the high efficiency required for reliable on-grid performance and battery charging. The information about efficiency and performance expectations displayed on product packaging is only a guide to the results achieved by the manufacturers in factory conditions so it’s necessary to find out how the system will work in real-life conditions in any given location. However, the vast experience that comes from being one of the biggest solar panel providers in the world is proof enough that Suntech know a thing or two when it comes to solar technology. Their reputation of stringent standards of manufacture, design and quality are renowned and the Suntech STP 210 is a prime example of latest solar PV technology.
Independent testing for maximum assurance
Suntech's commitment to exacting standards doesn’t end with their own in-house team of quality control specialists. Their products undergo and meet independent global testing standards performed in laboratories all over the world. The STP 210 has a total module efficiency of 13.6% providing the highest level of energy output per Watt. Its combination of supreme sun-to electricity conversion rate, low-light handling performance and good looking uniformity makes it an ideal solar solution for military and utility use as well as home and commercial installation.
Suntech’s STP 210 solar modules are built to last, utilising some of the most durable materials available in the industry to date. These include highly transparent tempered glass containing a low iron content, backed with waterproof film and combined with frames that are constructed of extra strong aluminium. The result is a system that can stand up against high winds, snow loads and extreme temperatures, without breaking or warping. These are all contributing factors ensuring that not only does the STP 210 start of life looking good and performing well, but will continue to do so for many years to come. This is backed by a 25 year transferable power output warranty which covers 5 years workmanship and materials, 12 years at 90% and 25 years at 80% of the minimal rated power output.
Cost and quality balance
Each polycrystalline panel is constructed of silicon blocks containing small crystals. This style of manufacture is slightly less efficient than monochrome modules but is nonetheless ideal for large scale use, even in the most challenging conditions. The benefit of polycrystalline style solar panels is the lower price tag while still proving to be a highly efficient and durable solution for home and commercial use on-grid and off.
