About Seraphim, Solar Panels

Seraphim solar panels review

Seraphim Solar is a Chinese manufacturer of tier one panels with 15 year product and 25 year performance warranties. They are certified as corrosion resistant which makes them suitable for installation in coastal areas.

I took an in depth look at Seraphim solar panels way back in August 2016 and you can read what I found out about them here.

Manufacturing Capacity

Seraphim solar was founded in 2009 and is a moderate sized manufacturer of solar panels. Their production capacity was approximately 5 gigawatts at the end of 2019. Just as a comparison, JinkoSolar shipped approximately 14.2 gigawatts of panels in 2019.

As with many large producers of solar panels, Seraphim is vertically integrated and produces the silicon ingots and that solar cells are made from. This makes them less reliant on outside suppliers.

Manufacturing Location

Seraphim Solar produces most of its panels in the city of Changzhou, which is a one hour train ride north-west of Shanghai. Elsewhere in China it has a facility in northern China’s Shanxi province.

In addition they also have a small manufacturing plant in Jackson Mississippi in the USA, with a current capacity of 300 megawatts. Seraphim Solar says this may be expanded to 1 gigawatt in the future, but this may not be true as in the United States it is common for companies to exaggerate their intended manufacturing capacity in order to wrangle increased concessions from state and local governments.

In 2018, the company opened a plant in Eastern Cape, South Africa with an annual output capability of 300MW.

Seraphim Solar Panels

Seraphim Solar produces a variety of solar panels. Standard sized, 60 cell panels are the type most commonly installed in Australia, but Seraphim also produces "half-cut" and "shingle" cell solar panels. They are all corrosion resistant and so suitable for installation by the sea. They have 15 year product warranties and 25 performance warranties.

AC Panels

The company was producing panels with built in microinverters called AC panels. However, it's not clear if these are still being manufactured.

Warranty Procedure For Orphaned Seraphim Customers

If you have purchased Seraphim panels from a solar installer who has since gone out of business, the responsibility for warranty claims shifts to Seraphim. Their customer service line in Australia is 03 9900 6423 - affected customers should contact this line for warranty assistance. 

My Recommendation

Seraphim Solar produce reliable, tier one panels and I have no problem recommending them. Check out what other Australians who own these modules think of them below, and add your Seraphim solar panels review if you're one of them.

I used OpenSolar to look Seraphim, LG, Jinko, Qcells, Canadian Solar, and REC.... and Seraphim out-performed them all! That's science I can't deny! Seraphim Blade is the best panel!

No known issues with the panels.
Due to the orientation of our unit, we have an east-west installation of the panels - 8 east, 10 west.
Today, with clear skies and 24degrees we still peaked at approx 4.8kW. Even now, at 3.10pm we're still generating 4.3kW.

My Seraphim panels are producing more solar energy this month that when first installed. This is due to the fact that there is more cloud free days now than there was back in February when I got my system installed. September and October have been great months for harvesting solar. As well as using the solar power I generate through the day I also sold back to the grid over 950 Kw per month.
