Who is Hyundai Solar?
As one of the biggest consumer brands in the world, many people would easily recognise Hyundai as a well-established international brand. Hyundai panels, made significant progress with their shingled solar panels. This allows for a much more uniform panel visually and also helps Hyundai to partially resolve shading issues. With the Shingled Cell Technology they also reduces the risk of micro cracks in the solar cell structure, that can occur if the module is placed under physical stress, like Hyundai 390w solar panel that we review here.
Hyundai Energy Solutions have been installing their panels in Australia for over 10 years now. Hyundai is well-known for its automotive products, but they also produce top-level solar panels that carry a 25-year product warranty, and a 25-year performance guarantee too, They're are up there with SunPower and LG.
Hyundai 390w solar panel
The ground-breaking Hyundai 390w is the next generation shingled panels . The Hyundai's UF series is a shingled cell module that produces up to 400W, and is currently the company’s most efficient to date. Hyundai have been able to essentially get more output from a smaller area.
Hyundai engineers used the former series M3 panel as a base, and fitted 36 x 158.75mm cells in a 10-string layout. Although these cells are smaller than other competing products that use 166 or 182mm, they have been able to get more on board to cover a greater surface area. This gives an excellent 21.3% efficiency rating.
Other important aspects about the Hyundai 390-watt panel are its low temperature co-efficient, and lower risk of highly damaging “hot spots” that can occur in the panel circuitry. The frame is robust and has an even greater mechanical load resistance.
Hyundai Solar Panels Review
Real Heavy Duty To Withstand Harsh Climates
It would be difficult to find any panel maker that doesn’t claim their panels to be extremely strong and able to put up with our often-intense weather here in Australia. That being said, Hyundai solar panels that we review here are the real deal in terms of build quality and strength.
In our opinion they are only matched by the likes of SunPower, LG, QCELLS and REC. Hyundai have their own UL and VDE accredited test lab too, so to ensure they meet or exceed global safety and performance certifications.
Hyundai shingled solar panels - what are they?
The Hyundai M3+ panel with its PERC shingled cell technology allows for exceptional performance in low light. Shingled Cell or Tiling Ribbon panels have been available for around five years now, and many panel makers have adopted the technology into their designs.
The best way to describe this technology is that it resembles the way house roof tiles overlap each other. What this does to improve efficiency is to bring all the components of the solar cells closer together, so you can actually fit more onto a panel surface, this allowing ions to flow more easily through the pane, and in turn, boosting output.
Hyundai Energy Solutions Australia - Solar Panels Warranty and Support
As part of Hyundai’s commitment to exceptional product performance, they give their panels a 25-year product warranty, and also guarantee that their panels will still give an 84.8% power output at year 25. Hyundai Energy Solutions Australia have their head office located in Sydney.
