I am looking at installing a ground mount Sonnen Twin Solar System for power generation through the OPA program and hydro one. Each tracker consists of 26 panels per tracker (52 in total).
My question is what solar panels should i go with, the Eclipsall panels which i understand are more efficient and maximize your production compared to Sharp panels or the eclipsall panels.
The Sharp panels are 235 watt vs the Eclipsall panels are 255 watt. The Eclipsall panels will reach the maximum production quicker and hold the peak longer. It is recommended to use Eclipsall Solar Panels for your highest production and revenue.
My main concern is that this is a large amount of money to put out for me as well as a long term investment, and i am worried that if i have problems with the eclipsall panels that this company may not be around in 5 or 10 years. Sharp is a well known bran name and i have confidence in them being around in 20 years and honouring a warrantee on the panels.
Both companies offer a 25 year warrantee on panels but will the eclipsall panel company still be in business in 20 years.
Are my concerns unfounded. Will the eclipsall panels more productive and cost effiecient over the long run? or should i trust my instincts and go with the sharp panels.
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
