AA Solar - Solar Panels

Over the decades AA Solar has used, researched and tested many solar panels from a variety of manufacturers and believe their range today are the best quality A Grade panels that can be found. Our extensive first-hand experience with these panels over the years evidence that these panels will perform as per specification over their 25 year life span. In addition AA Solar backs these products with warranties so our customers can enjoy the benefits and peace of mind knowing they have product that they can rely on.

We currently have a range of solar panels from 5W to 330W.

Our 5W, 10W, 20W, 50W, 70W, 100W, 140W* and 150W Solar Panels are 12V, and our 170W, 200W, 270W, 310W, 325W and 330W Solar Panels are 24V.

However you can run 12V Solar Panels on a 24V system by running 2x in series or you can run 24V Solar Panels on a 12V system with a Solar Controller.

(* 140W panels require an MPPT controller anyway)

All our AA SOLAR Solar Panels come with:

  • 25 years Warranty for 80% of Output
  • 10 years Warranty for 90% of Output
  • 10 years Limited Mechanical Warranty

We also have installation kitsets available. These include:

  • 6 metres Twin Sheath Marine Grade Flexible Cable
  • Aluminium Mounting Feet
  • Stainless Steel Fasteners
  • 2x Fuse Holders with Fuses
  • Cable Connectors
  • Heavy Duty Glue-Type Heat Shrink
  • Sika 291 Marine Grade Sealant
  • Cable Clips
  • Full Instructions and Phone Support

We have 4 set sizes of kits available ready made, or we can make up a special kit just for you!

Maximising energy production from your panels

The chart below shows the average effective output to expect per day from summer to winter, with older technology PWM controllers, and newer MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) style controllers. While in good solar conditions the difference is not so great, in winter and marginal light the MPPT controllers can produce about 35% more from the same solar source.
