PRE RELEASE. Unlike many opinionated reviews, the Solar Review Panel Assessment Criteria compares the ET Solar EliTe Mono against the industries best known specifications.  The result, a solar panel review with no room for discretionary bias and the transparency you desire.  

.Make and model:  ET Solar EliTe Mono.

Variants:  290 / 295 / 300 / 305 W.

  Affordability, Performance.

  Efficiency.

GREATER THAN 3.3 IS A VERY GOOD SCORE. The following content for the SolarEdge 60M Smart Module should be used as a guide only. Individual circumstances and compatibilities should always be taken into account when selecting the right solar panel for any given installation. This content has been built using the Solar Review Module Assessment Criteria 2.0 and above based on available product specifications at the time of writing. 

Design.

Design is what defines a particular solar panels energy production characteristics to assist greater yeild through innovation and advancement.

Efficiency.

With limited available space, efficiency is key. More power from the nominated surface area is derived from the key criteria of solar panel efficiency.

ET Solar

EliTe Mono - Efficiency
  • 18% Maximum module efficiency.
  • -0.42%°C Temperature coefficient.
  • 0/5% Power tolerance.

Performance.

Performance is based on how well the the nominated solar panel technology should retain its specification and power class over time as guaranteed by the manufacturer. 

ET Solar

EliTe Mono - Performance
  • 3% degradation in the 1st year.
  • 0.6% degradation per annum.
  • 25-year linear performance warranty.
  • Parts and service performance warranty.

Guarantee.

As guarantee obligations can often be shielded by installer incompetence, should a solar panel manufacturer define an adequately trained installer network with a complimentary warranty extension (added end-user benefit), such guarantee has been considered as a base warranty more likely of adhering manufacturer installation specifications.

Important: A manufacturers obligations under guarantee will be obsolete if the solar panel is not installed to manufacturer specifications. Use an authorised installer.

ET Solar

EliTe Mono - Guarantee
  • 10-year warranty.
  • Parts & service warranty.
  • No authorised installer network.

Affordability.

All well and good having the greatest technology, but what if that technology is simply out of reach for most? Adversely, the cheapest product may lack essential capabilities expected by many end-users. Put price into perspective. Affordability is where price and technology come together to help determine value.

ET Solar

EliTe Mono - Affordability
  • Superior technology score (3.3).
  • Approximately $0.35 per watt USD ex.

OVERALL.

The below overall assessment for the ET Solar EliTe Mono is broken up into two final scores.

  • Overall technology ranking; the average of design, durability, efficiency, performance and guarantee (for those less concerned about price).
  • Overall ranking; the average of design, durability, efficiency, performance, guarantee and affordability.
