Fixed Frame Panels

At Sun Powered Yachts we worked hard back in 2019 to set up a channel with SunPower to become an Authorized Dealer and make some of their fixed frame DC solar panels available for marine and RV applications.  Since SunPower split into two companies (SunPower & Maxeon) we are now (Aug '22) in a transition period from SunPower panels to start offering Maxeon panels.  Please check back to see what panels we have available as it is often changing. 

 

Currently we have the SunPower® A-Series 410W solar panels and will soon be able to offer the Maxeon® MAX-3-375W (all black) solar panels. 

Why not enjoy even more power with fixed frame solar panels if you have the 'roof space' available.

What are the new A-Series?

The SunPower® A-Series AC panel for residential & commercial projects was launched in March 2019, but the new SunPower® A-Series DC panel was made available from March 2020.  Both panels are built with Maxeon™ Gen 5 solar cells which are 65% larger than prior generations, converting more sunlight into electricity.  Set a record of your own with the world’s first 400-Watt solar panels, providing more power than ever before from fewer panels aboard your boat.

Which charge controller do I need?

The fixed frame panels we would suggest having connected to their own MPPT charge controller, particularly when connected to a 12V battery bank:

 

375W - Victron 100|50        410W - Victron 100|50  

Victron Energy MPPT controller

Where are these available?

Sun Powered Yachts is allowed to sell the SunPower® 410W & Maxeon® 375W fixed frame solar panels direct to customers planning to use them on their mobile applications (such as boat or RV).  Visit our shop for more product info or just let us know where you are located and a few details about your planned install by completing the Enquiry Form below and we can discuss your installation further.

 

 

We still highly recommend that you consult with a local professional for the install as the panels require much more consideration & a level of expertise during the install for a number of reasons including increased panel weight (up to 41lb) and increased voltages (up to 69.5V).  You will likely benefit from a professional installation by a company with the knowledge & experience to do so.  Below are a few companies that we recommend:
