Our USA plant is running!


All panels are now made in our state-of-the art facility
in Anacortes, WA


razor-thin, nothing protruding

recessed wires, flat back

wire exit through deck or on top

We added capacity: Bluewater and Compact panels now ship with little or no delay.

• New 2015 product line now available: We have built the first panels in the modular Suncatcher family. They have superior efficiencies and partial shade tolerance. While we have an order backlog, deliveries are now within a few weeks.

• Beware of misleading efficiency claims: Some vendors flash "22.5% efficiency". That may be solar cell efficiency but many panels have a lot of wasted space around margins and junction boxes. The true efficiency of the assembled panel rarely exceeds 16-17%.

Features:

• Efficient - Monocrystalline silicon cells with the highest state of the art conversion rate.

• Ultrathin and lightweight - All models are less than 1/8" (3 mm) thick with NOTHING protruding from the surface that can catch sheets, sails or your feet.

• Rugged - built on marine grade aluminum (Compact and Compact +) or carbon fiber laminate (Compact+ Lite) and sealed with heavy-duty fluorpolymer which provides superior UV, mechanical, salt water and chemical resistance

• Mount on curved surfaces - the modules are semi-ridgid (Compact and Compact+) or semi-flexible (Bluewater and Compact+ Lite and adapt to moderate bends.

• Partial shade resistance - arrays of parallel circuits fight shadow from the sail, boom and mast

• 10 year warranty - prorated for materials and workmanship and covers performance losses greater than 20% over the same time period. Details
