Hi Royritayan,

It’s always worth investing a little more for higher quality components when it comes to solar, take a look at our Best Solar Panel article to see the full list of panels to compare from. Below you’ll find details of the specific brands you’ve mentioned.

The Jinko panels are my pick of the bunch, Risen are also ok, but I wouldn’t go with the poly panels from Canadian, although Canadian Solar do offer a range of quality panels.

Finally deciding to go with the following 7.5 kW solar system than 6.6 kW from Solar Power Nation:

Mono Perc Half Cut Panels Solar Panel 1 x (ABB) Power-One Italy S.p.A ABB 7.5TL - OUTD - 3 Phase Inverter

Would you think this is a good deal and decent reputed products and retailer (Solar Power Nation)?

Thank you!

Hi @royritayan

It’s a pretty cheap system. Have you had a good look through the reviews of this company? I did a quick Google search and found a number of recent ones that were less than glowing let’s say.

Jinko keeps putting up really exciting new developments like this:

Great news. They just keep getting more efficient. I wonder what the panel efficiency will be using these cells? Possibly close to 21%

The big volume manufacturers are catching up to the Sunpower and LG IBC cell efficiency.
