Evergreen Solar ES-180 Solar Panel - Looks Good, Performs Even Better...
With the ES-180 giving out a very respectable 180 watts at peak power, this model of Evergreen Solar's ES series will give you both the power and the aesthetic appeal you need, whether powering your grid-tie application or charging your battery.
Two Of Us
This particular series of modules (the ES series) utilizes two parallel strings of 54 cells in series and can be used for battery charging with an appropriate charge controller.
We Try To See It Your Way
And to do that, we want to give you as much technical information about the ES-180 as we can for those of you technically inclined, so you "techies" will love this part (everybody else, feel free to skip this and join us again following this next paragraph - thank you!).
The Technical Stuff
These modules provide superior performance and feature:
- Maximum power up to 4% above rated, minimum only 2% below rated
- Anti-reflection cover glass delivers more energy
- Backed by a 25-year limited power warranty; 2-year workmanship warranty
- A rigid, double-walled, deep frame with integrated water drainage holes
- Crimped frame corners – no screws to loosen
- Sealed junction box never needs field maintenance
- UL, cUL and CEC approved
And we know you're concerned about the environment, so just look at Evergreen's environmental credentials:
- Energy payback time up to 40% faster than leading crystalline technologies (Energy payback time = the time required for any energy producing system or device to produce as much useful energy as was consumed in its manufacture and construction. For PV the energy payback time is normally 2 to 4 years, but these modules will do that in almost half the time!)
- Low carbon dioxide emissions in the manufacturing process – up to 33% less than other leading crystalline technologies
- Low lead – use of lead-free solder for all solar cell inter-connections
Evergreen modules have multi-contact cables and are Ul, cUL and CEC approved. They are manufactured in both the USA and Germany. Manufacturer's Warranty
