Both panels are available immediately.
These panels are part of a new wave of monocrystalline products (PERC and n-type) that have pushed efficiency levels up considerably from the standard 15% polysilicon products of a few years ago – while keeping pricing respectable for homeowners.
The Neon R has two new variants – the standard, higher efficiency, Neon R and the more aesthetically consistent Neon R Black. The standard R ranges from 355-365W per panel, while the R Black ranges from 345-355W – peaking at 10W less and 20.6% efficiency. The two panels are the same otherwise.
The ‘Black’ panel exchanges the white …
