We find ourselves with a excess of solar panels. To make room in our warehouse we thought of offer all of you a discount on two of these panels. One is the LG 340 and the other is the LG 410. Get them while supplies last!

Re: Excess Solar Panel Inventory Sale

A very good deal and the LG panels are among the best in quality and efficiency. But one very small caveat. I was just told by a friend in the business that LG is stopping production of all solar panels. So the warranty, in the rare case of failure, will not be replacement but an amortized refund. For boaters generally not an issue, more so in a home installation with a large array of matched panels.

LG Electronics Inc. is pulling out of the global solar panel business.
Panel production will wind down this spring, and LG says it will continue to support its US solar customers by honoring all limited warranties.

Re: Excess Solar Panel Inventory Sale

Hello everyone,
Thank you all who where interested in the sale. Unfortunately, our stoke of 410 and 340 LG panels have ran out therefor the sale is over. We still have many other panels available though our website. Sorry if you could not take part in this sale, but stay tune for future sales.

Many Thanks,
eMarine Systems

Would be surprised if they were warrantied for marine use, that would be a rarity.

Are any panels rated for marine use?

Kyocera use to be but I’m unsure if they still are.

Re: Excess Solar Panel Inventory Sale

My Panasonic specifically states the warranty is void if used on a boat.

Re: Excess Solar Panel Inventory Sale

Our panels were iec61701:2011, salt mist corrosion certified. Cut sheet attached:
Edit: I guess the cut sheet won't attach . . .

If you google SILFAB SIL-360nx, you can open the cut sheet with all the specs. These were recommended to me by a solar installer that uses them in homes on the water. We've only had them on the boat for about a month and a half now, but they're performing great in SE Alaska!
