About Risen, Solar Panels

Risen solar panels review

Risen Energy is a Chinese manufacturer of quality tier 1 solar panels that have a 12 year product warranty rather than the 10 years that is standard for the industry. Their panels are certified as corrosion resistant which makes them suitable for installation anywhere in Australia and they have an Australian office in Melbourne.

Q1 2019 Tier 1 rankings from Bloomberg New Energy Finance place Risen as the third largest Chinese panel manufacturer, with an output of 8.6 gigawatts.

Risen Energy Solar Panels

At the time of writing in May 2019, Risen Energy produces panels with efficiencies of up to 19.2%. They all have a 12 year product warranty which covers them if they fail due to a fault in manufacturing. In addition they have a 25 year performance warranty, but that is unlikely to be of benefit to households. You can read more about solar panel warranties here.

Risen Energy Panels Came 2nd In The Photon Test

In the 2014 Photon Lab’s Outdoor Module Test, Risen Energy’s SYP190S-M panel came 2nd out of 174 panels tests. This is a truly outstanding result.

Mind you, their SYP185S-M panel came 114th in the same test, so there might be some slight quality control issues at the Risen factory.

In the 2015 test, the three Risen Energy panels tested overall did very well.

Company History

Risen Energy was founded in 1986 in Ninghai in eastern Zhejiang Province, around 200km south of Shanghai.

While they have not grown as fast as some other Chinese panel manufacturers they have not overextended themselves financially and carry an AAA credit rating. This means they are rated as trustworthy as a bundle of US sub-prime mortgages in the year 2006.

In addition to their Chinese facilities, they have 200 megawatts of panel manufacturing capacity in Vietnam which they plan to expand to 600 megawatts.

Warranty procedure for orphaned Risen customers

If you have purchased Risen panels from a solar installer who has since gone out of business, the responsibility for warranty claims shifts to Risen. They have an Australian office in Victoria, and their customer service line is 03 9021 7788 - affected customers should contact this line for warranty assistance. They will arrange for the panels to be checked, and will handle replacement under warranty through one of their authorised distributors. Labor costs involved with panel replacement are not covered under warranty.

Risen Energy Solar Panels Are Probably A Reliable Brand

Risen are one of the higher quality Chinese manufacturers. Independent testing has shown their panels can perform extremely well, and they back their products with an above average 12 year product warranty. Risen panels should be a reliable and cost-effective panel.

RSM120-6-315M in Perth, WA.
I've just got the system installed few days ago, 21 of these panels, Fronius 5.0.1 and a smart meter.
Installer commented that the panels are of a sturdy construction with nice and thick frame, and the cell pattern "looks really nice compared with some other ones". Surely it's not about the looks, but when everything else is great, why not have the good looks, too?
Although, they also mentioned that cables used to interconnect panels are "too long to not get tucked into their holding clips, but a bit too short (fiddly) when connecting and installing panels".
System topped out at 45.1kWh yesterday (couldn't see a single drop in production due to clouding). As far as i can tell, that's great, right?
