GE GEPV-100 100W Photovoltaic Module

Posted

Pros: Great 12V battery chargers, ease of installation

Cons: Discontinued item

I really have nothing negative to say about my pair of GE PV-100s. The only problem is that they don't make them anymore so you have to find someone with a stockpile (mine came from mrsolar.com). They come with MC cables as positive and negative leads so they're a snap to install. They went on their Two Seas mount with a little bit of help (had to drill some holes, but that was my mistake in how I placed the mount, GE did their job fine). Each produces a nice amount of power (about 6 amps max) so one or two charges a good-sized 12V battery before long. I was satisfied with the power from these though I did end up adding a couple of BP 350's to the system later. That was simply because we began using the "Supplemental Solar" system at my house more and more, and needed a little more recharging capability to get the battery back to full every day. The only reason I didn't just get another one of these is because my wife wanted to get an Evergreen panel (one of very few made in USA) or a BP panel (because she has a work-connection to BP). These also look sharp with a dark-blue background behind the dark-blue cells. They are made in China which is maybe the only negative, but that's very difficult to avoid in a panel this size (the 170 watt and bigger panels made by GE are actually made local where I live, and Evergreen makes their big panels in Colorado and is also now beginning production in Massachusetts).
