Solar is a great alternative.

The 200w solar panel with efficiency much more than satisfactory

The 200w solar panel is a high-performance module. NewPowa manufactures these rigid and strong solar modules. 

They call it the NEWPOWA 200w 12V Monocrystalline Solar Panel. It is a high-efficiency mono module.

This is a newer design and a better module with higher cell efficiency. 

Also, a much better light converting rate.

It comes with pre-installed diodes in the junction box. Also a pair of 3ft wires with MC4 connectors.

They attach the 3ft pair to the module.

The efficiency of the mono panel is more than satisfactory and the color is black.

The manufacturer uses high-performance cells that they encapsulate in EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate).

EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate) is available in thin sheets. The manufacturers insert these thin sheets between the solar cells. Also between the module and the top surface. They also use it between the module and the back surface.

They use heavy-duty anodized aluminum frames for solar panels. That provides for high-quality panel rigidity.

One can use these solar panels for many years. You will experience no faults, defects, or operating failures.

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

On a sunny day with 7 hours of sunlight in mid-summer, you can bargain for the generation of about 1, 2 Kilowatt.

That is 7 x 200 watt = 1,4KiloWatt.

Now you allow for a loss of 15% and you get 1, 4 X 85/100 = 1,190 Kilowatt

Round the 0,19 and you get a fair 1, 2 Kilowatt.

Advantages

  • The junction box comes with pre-installed diodes. This is to ensure safe operation and to cut power drops due to shading.

  • This is a new design solar module. It comes with higher efficiency cells allowing for a better light conversion rate.

  • The solar panel has a solid frame and it comes with pre-drilled holes. It withstands high winds (2400Pa), hail, and snow load of up to 5400Pa.

  • The connectors on the end fit perfectly in standard MC4 connectors and the wires are good thick high-quality conductors...

  • The 200w solar panel has the ability to produce a fair amount of power. Even on cloudy days and under shady conditions.

  • The 200w solar panel comes with high-transparent, low iron tempered glass.

  • The manufacturer uses a durable TPT back sheet. This is to dissipate heat to ensure better panel performance and lifespan.

Disadvantage

Some people recommend brackets of various heights. This is to provide for RV roofs that are not even when you want to fit the panel on top.

To mention

  • NewPowa provides great customer service.
  • The packaging is well done and Newpowa provides an excellent solar module.

  • It is very easy to install and connect the 200w Solar panel.

  • Be sure to buy the correct gauge connection cables from the panel to the charge controller. Also from the controller to the battery.

Warranty

The 200w solar panel comes with a 2-year limited material and workmanship warranty

10 Year 90% output warranty.

25 Year 80% output warranty.

In conclusion

The 200w solar panel from Newpowa is a high-performance module. It is of high quality and at an affordable price.

It produces decent wattage and good amperage for the space it takes.
