Solar Panel Reviews

It's official! The expensive
solar panels for your home installed by the glut of over-priced solar franchisee's are now a thing of the past. Cheap solar panels can be made easily at home by anyone. This page includes 3 solar panel reviews from the top 3 highest rated solar products, rated by actual users.

Best Rated #1

number #1 rated product in our 2011 solar panel reviews comes with a retail price of $69.95. This panel comes with a 1 year warranty for parts and a 10 year performance warranty for power production. This unit offers the best value and is also easy to install.

You can buy as many of these units as you need and connect them in series very easily. Here's a recent review from a recent user;

'The parts used in the construction of this panel are extremely good, The aluminum frame is sturdy and the solar cells are protected under high transmission tempered glass which is exactly the way it should be. This is especially good for a low-cost panel to have tempered glass. The under side of the panel is completely sealed from moisture and mechanical damage. I was initially wrong about this solar panel not having a built in Diode. I did a second check behind the back cover and found that there is actually a diode there'.


The number #2 rated product in our 2011 solar panel reviews is the Sunforce 50033 15-Watt Solar Charging Kit which retails for $94.95. This system is more comprehensive than the HQRP panel because it also includes a charge controller and wiring kit. It's probably the
best way for a newbie to get started with DIY domestic solar panels. This model is very popular for RVs, cabins, homes, motorboats as well as a good source for back-up power or remote off the grid homes. The panels themselves are weatherproof and durable and can withstand impacts from hailstones travelling up to 50 mph. As with the HQRP panels, this model also includes a built-in, ultra-bright blue LED charging indicator. Here's a review from a user;

'My solar roof panels were shipped fast and they were extremely well packaged. The panels are solidly made and well constructed. It was easy for me to make a solar panel system as it was very simple to connect all of the wiring. This panel was the cheapest 15 watt unit I could find'.


The number #3 rated product in our 2011 solar panel reviews is the Instapark 15W Mono-crystalline Solar Panel which retails for $59.90. This panel is made of high efficiency mono-crystalline solar cells, which are well-known to be the
most efficient solar panels, and are protected behind tempered glass.

Here's another user review for this model;

'I bought the best deep-cycle marine battery I could find (seventy bucks from Wal-mart) and I was very pleased with the results. I used up the battery to drain it and connected this panel to it. The result was that it was fully charged within 4 days’.
