BP Solar’s 230w solar panel – September 18, 2009
I’m not a big fan of BP Solar panels ever since BP’s CEO bashed on solar power technology and their solar panels caught on fire due to a faulty junction box. The big oil company continues to push their solar division further offering their own version of a 230w solar panel called the Endura series. The solar panel has a smaller power tolerance range of +3/-3 and has a lower voltage therefore higher current which drives the increased efficiency.
The BP Solar3230N is a 60 cell polycrystalline solar panel with a potted junction box that includes six bypass diodes that improve heat management according to the company. The frame of the 3230N is unique due to its”tubular” shape which increased the solar panels’ ability to handle higher loads. What do you think about BP Solar panels?
