Xantrex is offering a lineup of solar solutions, starting with rigid panel and flexible panel roof-mounted solar kits and expansion kits to accommodate future upgrades or expansion.
The roof-mounted solar kits include a 30-amp charge controller with all necessary hardware for installation, including PV and battery cables with built-in fuse and mounting brackets.
The roof-mounted flexible solar panels achieve added durability from a highly protective top-layer called ETFE (Ethylene-Tetra-Fluoro-Ethylene), which allows for better light transmittance, corrosion resistance, stain-resistance and weather resistance. The result is better overall performance over a wide temperature range while withstanding a variety of environmental conditions, compared to non-ETFE semi-flexible panels, according to Xantrex.
The Solar Max panels are the most durable due to its unique mesh-grid technology. The panels are more efficient allowing it to harvest more energy even in low light and shaded conditions when compared to a standard solar panel. A peel-and-stick adhesive backing eliminates the need to glue or drill mounting holes, enabling a faster installation.
Most of the solar kits come with a five-year warranty.
