Founded in 2011, Seraphim is a world-class solar panel manufacturer with more than 6 gigawatt of solar panels installed in over 40 countries.
Seraphim panels are amongst the most efficient in the world, due to their innovative design which involves splitting each panel into two sections. This reduces the losses in energy output between the cells and helps overcomes the reduction in panel efficiency caused by partial shading.
Their solar panels are subject to stringent quality control through smart, highly automated manufacturing processes at the company’s plants in China and the USA.
Seraphim’s focus on innovation and product quality is recognised by industry expert, DNV GL, who have listed the company as a ‘top performer’.
Seraphim has a ‘tier 1’ rating from Bloomberg New Energy Finance. This rating scale is an indicator of financial stability, an important consideration when considering the ability of a company to honour its warranties over 15 to 25 years.
The company’s Australian office is located in Melbourne.
Key Features – Seraphim Blade Panels
More watts per square metre
Seraphim Blade Panels have 330 watts per panel (a few years ago, the typical specification was 250 watts per panel). This means you get more power per square metre of roof space – an important point if your roof space is limited. It also means lower installation costs as less panels are needed to achieve the same size system as previously.
Minimise the loss of power through shading
Seraphim panels will produce power even when they are partially shaded. This is achieved by an innovative design feature which involves splitting each solar panel into two separate sections so they generate power independently of each other. This means when half the solar panel is shaded, the other section of the panel that isn’t shaded will continue to generate power.
Higher energy output
The loss of power that happens when energy moves from the individual cell through the solar panel – and ultimately to the solar inverter – is minimised due to another clever design feature. Each small cell in the Seraphim Blade panel is half the size of cells found in most other solar panels. This results in less energy loss when power is transferred from the cell, which means you get more power from each of your panels.
High efficiency rating
Seraphim Blade panels have an efficiency rating of 19.49%, making them one of the most efficient panels on the market.
Seraphim’s commitment to quality is borne out by the ‘better-than-standard’ warranty provided on its panels. Generally solar panels in Australia come with a 10 year product warranty. The Seraphim Blade series of panels have a 15 year product warranty as well as a 25 year performance warranty.
