Risen solar panels have big potential. They got #2 in Photon 2013 which is extremely. Only a fraction of a percentage off the top panel from Sopray. Risen Energy seems like a really pro company. They seem to have a decent English translator, which is more than can be said for 90% of Chinese solar companies. The Risen website looks professional and clean. The company has been around since ’02 which is a plus. that’s 12 years in business now.
What’s Good About Risen Solar Panels?
Well for a start, they got 2 panels ranked within the top 6 panels in the Photon Test 2013! That is a pretty darn fancy achievement. The company itself seems pretty legit. I reckon any Chinese solar panel maker that has a pro looking website has half a chance of being decent. The fact that Risen Energy are committed to getting their panels tested in Photon is a good thing too.
- They are one of the top performing solar panels in Photon
- They have been around for quite a long time
- They are a diverse company with a lighting division as well
What’s Not Great About Risen Solar Panels?
Now don’t get me wrong. Risen solar panels seem to be made by A-Class solar dudes. But they aren’t the best thing out there by a long shot. I mean, the panel isn’t that bad at performance, we know that. But the warranties are the same as every other man and his dog. This always puts doubt in my mind. I mean if a panel like SERAPHIM can get a 30 year warranty then why can’t these guys get it?
All in all, Risen Energy make a pretty good solar panel, but there are other panels which are just as good. I would rather go with Phono Solar , RENESOLA or Sunlink – and they aren’t usually too high a price.
