The 100 watt solar panel to be used in many off grid applications

100 Watt Solar Panel from Renogy

The 100 watt solar panel is a high-performance module. Renogy manufactures these rigid and strong solar modules. 

They call it the Renogy 100 Watt 12V Monocrystalline Solar Panel.

It is a High-Efficiency Mono Module. 

The 100 watt solar panel is very well manufactured.

They use iron tempered glass with enhanced stiffness and impact resistance. 

It is anti-reflective and of high transparency.

It is possible to use many panels in an array to get a higher output power if required.

A set of MC4 connectors comes from the panel. This makes it easy to connect with other Renogy solar panels.

The MC4 connectors are the industry standard and work very well.

The panel is very well made. They have seals on all 4 edges, top, and bottom.

It comes with a superb warranty for up to 25 years.

How much power does a 100w solar panel produce?

On a sunny day with 7 hours of sunlight in mid-summer, you can bargain for the generation of about 600 watt

That is 7 x 100 watt = 700 Watt.

Now you allow for a loss of 15% and you get 700 X 85/100 = 595 Watt

We can round it to 600 watt and be assured that we will get this energy on sunny days.

For a full year you will get 600 X 365 = 219 kilowatt of free electric power.

The junction box

Junction Box for 100 Watt Solar Panel

It is an IP 65 rated waterproof Junction box.

The box is durable and to use for many years. It provides complete protection against harsh weather conditions.

The frame

This is an RNG-100D sleek design, durable frame. 

Durable Frame

The frame is corrosion resistant for extended outdoor use for many years to come.

The frames are of high quality with aluminum walls. This ensures that the panels can withstand heavy snow loads and high-speed winds.

The panel comes with pre-drilled holes at the back to ensure fast and secure mounting.


  • The panels are light and easy to carry and will stay rust free for many years even when exposed to moisture.
  • This Monocrystalline module ensures high conversion efficiency.
  • Very well made and they charge even on a cloudy day.
  • When you order you receive, good protection in transit  by the manufacturer.
  • It is easy to work with.


  • The corners of the frames are very sharp. It is better to wear strong gloves when working with the panels.

Things to mention about the 100 watt solar panel

  •  It can be a good idea to start with this 100 watt solar panel generating your own electricity. Especially if you are are a bit out of your comfort zone with solar. 

  • It can help you to grow in experience and knowledge.  By doing that you will make a good investment and you will save lots of money in years to come.

  • A good idea is to attach two metal legs to the frame. The frame is strong enough and then you have a wonderful portable system.You can then move the panel a couple of times per day.
  • You will have much more direct sunshine on the 100 watt solar panel, resulting in much higher output power. 
On a Camper
              You will have Peak wattage for a long time.
  • By utilizing solar panels, it is handy to use on your camper like this person has done.

In a conclusion

Many happy hours of quiet power generation.

This is what you will get from your  100 Watt Solar Panel.
