Anyone heard or know of Solar Park or Symphony Panels?

I have a choice of these two so-called 'premium range' panels. Has anyone used or have any information on these brands?

Cant say I have heard of either, but are they selling at a "premium" price? Paying 50% more for a panel that delivers 5% more output is not good economics.

No, but if they last twice as long it may be.

However I've never heard of those panels either so I highly doubt they are better than anything else that company may be offering.

Hi
Yes I'm having an installation in 2 weeks using 13 x "Symphony" panels and an SMA 3000TL sunnyboy inverter making up a 3kw system. My investigation on the Symphony panels revealed that they are a German company and manufactured in Korea. I'm told they are higher in spec than some of the Chinese panels and slightly below the very top of the range "wallet busting" panels that you can buy.

Hi Ron, the URL gives:

Whoops, our bad...

The page you requested was not found, and we have a fine guess why.

* If you typed the URL directly, please make sure the spelling is correct.

Sorry I don't think the web site address printed out correctly but I now have the information you wanted....

voc = 37.2v
vmpp = 30.4v

The module number of the panel is SE6S60 and specific model number is SE-S230

Hi
I had 30 Solar Park 230w panels installed last month, they have been running for 24 days in Northern Sydney and have supplied 631 kwa to Energy Australia so far. They are installed on a Nortwest facing tile roof. The panels connected to a SMC 8000 TL inverter.
I am considering the purchase of an additional 6 panels to be installed on rails that will allow them to be istalled in a northern orientation. I am waiting to see what happens to the cost of panels with the NSW Gvt ceasing all subsidies for solar panels.

Ian, your current rebate may be affected if you add further panels, might be a good idea to check out all the FAQ pages from NSW govt.
