SUNLINK solar panels are quite a popular brand in Aus. Besides being one of the better Chinese solar panels, SUNLINK have a pretty impressive history… Here’s why.
SUNLINK Solar Panels History
Sunlink was founded in 2004 and is now one of the larger solar panel makers in the world. Sunlink are a “tier 1” solar panel and they certainly make it known on their Sunlink Australia website. The company has a strong focus on PV (solar power panels). They have a variety of panels up to 300W in power output. The most common panel you’ll see around Aus right now (2014) is the 250W Sunlink solar panel.
SunLink PV Technology Co.LTD, a company based in Jiangsu China is the sole manufacturer of Sunlink solar panels. The company’s module production capacity is 200MW, a relatively small capacity. However, when you take into account the current falling prices of solar modules that is making many companies close, its continued presence in the solar market and brand leadership is because of the quality and reliability of its solar panels.
SunLink PV was founded in 2004 and since then, the company has almost monopolized the manufacture and sale of solar panels within the ranges of 5W to 300W. These panels are both polycrystalline and monocrystalline panels. They have IEC61730, IEC61215 Ed.2, and UL1703 certificates of quality.
The SUNLINK product range
Like many other manufacturers of solar panels, Sunlink solar panels are Polycrystalline and Monocrystalline. The company sells five types of mono silicon panels that have a 25-year power output warranty closely monitored by international certification and quality management systems. The power ranges of these solar panels are between 110 to 280 Watts.
