Risen Energy upgraded its residential solar panel product warranty from 15 to 25 years this week, and we couldn’t be happier. So, are Risen solar panels any good? Let’s break it down.
We’ve been supporters of the Risen brand for a long time. We’ve installed thousands of Risen solar panels over the years. And while the new 25-year product warranty is a great reason to install these panels, there are plenty more reasons to consider the brand.
Risen produces affordable solar panels
Solar is a long-term investment. Therefore, when you install solar to your rooftop, you want a quality solar system that will last. But if you want good quality solar panels, do you need to spend big bucks?
Most people don’t want to spend a fortune on solar. Like many of our clients, no doubt you have a budget in mind. Well, we’ve got great news. With Risen, you won’t break the bank and you won’t compromise on quality.
Risen are Tier 1 solar panels
A pioneer in the solar industry, Risen Energy is a leading, Tier 1, high performance solar panel manufacturer. Each year, Risen manufactures enough solar panels to cover more than two million Aussie homes! That’s a lot of solar panels.
What’s more, the company develops and invests in utility-scale projects. There are currently two 100MW+ solar farms in Australia. They include Merredin Solar Farm in Western Australia and Yarranlea Solar Farm in Queensland.
Merredin Solar Farm generates enough green energy to power more than 40,000 homes. Meanwhile, Yarranlea Solar Farm powers Toowoomba. It connects to the Ergon Energy grid and generates enough energy to power more than 30,000 homes.
Are Risen solar panels reliable?
Yes, Risen solar panels are reliable. And the brand has plenty of awards to back it up. Firstly, Risen has received the PV Evolution Labs (PVEL) “Top Performer” award for product reliability and performance six years in a row. PVEL is the leading independent test laboratory and conducts annual tests for the global solar and storage tech industry.
Secondly, the European research authority (EuPD) has awarded Risen the “Top PV Brand in Australia” for the third consecutive time. The EuPD researches and collects feedback and data from installers and consumers. Based on this research, the EuPD then awards winners annually.
Finally, Risen was incorporated into the Silicon Module Super League (SMSL) in 2019. SMSL members are leaders in the solar module market. Furthermore, they continuously set industry benchmarks.
Do Risen solar panels perform well in Australian conditions?
Risen solar panels are certified to withstand severe environmental conditions. Therefore, they are perfect for our harsh Australian conditions. We currently design with the Titan S Mono PERC Module, which has:
- an anti-reflective and anti-soiling surface to minimise power loss from dirt and dust
- severe salt mist, ammonia and blown sand resistance for seaside, farm, and desert environments, and
- exceptional mechanical resistance with a static wind load test to 2400Pa, which is equivalent to a wind speed of more than 200km per hour.
Risen has customer support in Australia
While Risen modules are manufactured in China, the Risen Energy Australian head office is in Melbourne. Committed to providing excellent customer service, the support team outlines its warranty claims process here.
