Main features of Phono Solar Panels:

Outstanding module efficiency of up to 17.26 %. This means that the panels on your roof collect more power per square meter and you require less roof space.
Anti-PID (Potential Induced Degradation) technology which guarantees that the panel withstands the effects of corrosive elements like ammonia (NH3), hydrogen sulfide (HS) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) throughout its lifetime.
High performance at low irradiation (i.e. from tree shading etc.), ensuring your household energy needs are met even on cloudy days.
Advanced low-light technology which means that the panels keep producing good amounts of power even on cloudy days, while they can exceed their nominal values on sunny days.
Low temperature coefficient (up to -0.40%). This means that the panel performs very well in higher temperatures and is suitable for our Queensland climate.Low temperature co-efficient of up to 0.41%. This means that the panel performs well in higher temperatures and is suitable for our Queensland climate.
