How Renogy’s Rooftop Solar Panels Compare to Axitec

Solar Panel Comparisons
Axitec vs. Renogy solar panels

Typically Renogy’s solar products work best for recreational vehicle applications. The company has a wide selection of portable and scaled-down solar panels, allowing the company to make solar work for a variety of roof types. 

However, this company does carry 320-watt residential solar panels. Let’s review and compare it to the Axitec 320-watt solar panel.

Renogy Residential Solar Panels

Renogy specializes in adding solar to recreational vehicles such as RVs, vans, trailers, boats, and trucks. However, they also have solar panels for homes. While their solar kits only provide up to 4.8 kW, they do sell two different residential-sized solar panels that customers can purchase separately.

Renogy’s 320-Watt Monocrystalline Solar Panel

The Renogy 320-watt solar panels have black frames and PERC monocrystalline technology. They can withstand 5400 Pascal (Pa) of snow. They have operating temperatures between -40°F and 194°F. Each solar panel weighs 40.8 lbs and has dimensions of 65.6×39.5×1.4 inches.

The 25-year power output warranty on these solar panels covers 95 percent efficiency in the first five years, 90 percent efficiency in the next five years, and 80 percent over the rest of the 25-year warranty. These solar panels also have a 10-year material and workmanship warranty.

Axitec 320-Watt Residential Solar Panels

Axitec uses half-cell monocrystalline technology. It can handle 5,410 Pa of snow load. They also stress tested the modules, which tolerate between -40F to 185F. Each of these solar panels weighs 41.89 lbs. They have dimensions of 66.30 x 39.45 x 1.38 inches. 

These solar panels have both a 15-year manufacturer’s warranty and a 25-year output warranty. In the first 15 years of the output warranty, the solar panels should produce at least 90 percent, while the remaining 25 years shouldn’t go below 85 percent.

What’s the Difference Between Renogy and Axitec?

The differences between these solar panels aren’t drastic. The Axitec option doesn’t perform as well in the heat as the Renogy choices by nine degrees. And the Axitec solar panel weighs a little more than the 320-watt Renogy panel.

The Axitec warranty, however, really sets it apart from Renogy. The Axitec output warranty offers five more years of 90 percent efficiency and five percent more efficiency over the rest of the warranty length.
