Renesola is one of the largest solar panel manufacturers in the world, as well as one of the leading suppliers to Australia. The company produces a range of affordable ‘quasi-monocrystalline’, monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar panels, as well as its own line of microinverters. The company will also soon be introducing its own string/central inverter solution, roof racking system, and an energy storage system for both grid-connected and off-grid solar systems into the Australian market.

ReneSola solar panels: Points of difference
–Affordable solar modules from a tier-1 manufacturer, as per Bloomberg New Energy Finance and ‘bankable’ as per Accelios Solar
–All modules are protected against potential-induced degradation (PID)–a phenomenon that results in power leakage and loss in solar panels
-Low temperature coefficient means that ReneSola solar panels perform better in high-temperature conditions
-All ReneSola modules, compared to Tier 2 & Tier 3, work better in low light conditions, giving the home a larger yield in the long run.
–Local Australian office means prompt and efficient service and support for both system owners and installers
–Low light-induced degradation means that panels continue to perform well as they age
–ReneSola was the largest importer of solar products into Australia in 2013, and for 2014 they are set to maintain this position with their new Replus Inverter, LED Lighting & Energy Storage divisions
-Have been tested for desert conditions–Sand and dust-proof (see certificate (PDF))
–Each ReneSola solar module is electroluminescense (EL) tested after shipping for fine fractures and faults in solar cells
–Ammonia corrosion test (IEC 62716) and salt-mist test (IEC61701) compliant
-ReneSola is publicly listed on the New York Stock Exchange (SOL)
Other products by ReneSola
-String inverters: SolarMax
ReneSola is the distributor for Swiss-made SolarMax string inverters in Australia
-Microinverters: Micro Replus
Microinverters offer considerable potential benefit to solar system owners vs conventional, centralised inverters. ReneSola manufactures its own 250W microinverter as well as a Gateway interface (PDF) that allows system owners, installers, and the manufacturer to monitor system performance from virtually anywhere.
