Made in Germany, the SolarWatt 60M High Power posses an industry leading quality which no other manufacturers solar panels can surpass. It’s the one element which you last consider before handing over thousands of dollars toward your solar purchase.
Make and model: SolarWatt 60M High Power
Variants: 300W/ 305W / 310W
Standout Features: Glass-Glass construction, 30-year product warranty, Solar 3.0 mono PERC 60-cell design (300W+).
Consider what the last detail you ask yourself is when investing your hard earned money in any expensive product? “Is this product durable enough to deliver what is promised?” Durability is the last category most consider, why? Because durability is what will justify the ultimate value and for you to get the most reward for your investment. Instead of trying to break efficiency records, the SolarWatt 60M High Power is now turning heads in the extreme durability class.
The key to the SolarWatt 60M High Power extreme durability factor extends from the glass-glass design. A 2mm anti-reflective tempered solar glass front sheet and another 2mm solar glass back sheet protects the integral circuitry of the solar module. Hence the name Glass-Glass.
A white EVA laminate remains utilised within the Glass-Glass sandwich design to assist higher cooling properties of the SolarWatt 60M High Power. 60 monocrystalline PERC solar cells connected with five busbar technology ensure the power output of 300W or greater at standard test conditions.

100% protection against PID, the SolarWatt 60M High Power, with the solar cells embedded between two glass layers protect against extreme environmental conditions impecably well. Beyond IEC standard, the glass-glass construction of the SolarWatt 60M High Power meet the requirements of Hail Resistance Class 4. A 45mm hail test. Twice as large than that of which is the minimum size specified in the IEC standard.
Considering all protective glass surfaces of the SolarWatt 60M High Power will not age, superior resistance is assured against, hail, ammonia (agriculture), aggressive gasses & acid rain (industry), salt mist (coastal areas), warm-cold cycles (desert climate) and abrasion due to sandstorms.

- 0.3% degradation per annum.
- 30-year linear performance warranty.
- Parts and service performance warranty.
The standout feature by far and a compliment to the extreme durability of the SolarWatt 60M High Power. A resounding 30-year product (and performance) warranty which is the highest among all other solar panel brands. World leading assurance which guarantees up to 3 x more power than most alternative Tier-1 listed options. Enough said.
SolarWattVision 60P - Guarantee
- 30-year warranty.
- Parts and service warranty.
- Authorised installer network with additional end-user benefits.
They say you get what you pay for. If comparing the Tier 1 average to the SolarWatt 60M High power to the Tier 1 average this is especially true. Less affordable initially than most, however not the most expensive solar panel available. The SolarWatt 60M High Power creates long term value with the world’s largest solar panel product warranty. Ensuring solar panels are not needed to be replaced every 5 to 10-years brings the affordability rating back up and begs the question of greater value.
