Looking for Kyocera solar panels distributors

There is the Kyocera solar panels website, but no prices or how to order, or any info about what is best for boats.


I am looking for 320 watts 12v kyocera solar panels as i heard this is a good choice for extensive cruising and liveaboard. True? Any info? Thanks!

Re: Looking for Kyocera solar panels distributors

I did a google search for Kyocera Solar Panels and found dozens of online sources for the Kyoceras.

Yes they are good panels, have a good reputation.

Re: Looking for Kyocera solar panels distributors

The 'behind-cell-connect' panels are very fine. At least 15% more efficient by area.

Last time we got them we shopped online from SVB. You will likely find a supplier closer to your place. They ARE more expensive too.

Otherwise, our brand new China made panel matches the output of our Neste quality panel.

I would only buy the more efficient panels if space is at premium.

You may have read one of Chinese makers went belly up, so possibly prices will go up for a time till someone fills the void.
