Solar Panels

Option 1

Jinko 315 Eagle HC Black on Black

For only $2.55/watt, Option 1 offers great technology at a low price. Jinko is a member of the “Silicon Module Super League”. What does that mean for customers? You have the choice of a great panel at a great price, from the world’s largest solar panel manufacturer! For the customer looking for the best price on a solar array, this is a great entry point into producing renewable energy for the lowest cost-per-watt possible.

Option 2

Panasonic HIT

Option 2 has several options for size and price to meet customer needs. The Panasonic options include a 325 watt black panel with white backing paper for $2.70/watt, a 325 watt black panel with black backing paper for $2.80/watt, and a 330 watt black panel with white backing for $2.80/watt. Panasonic has a world-class reputation for quality electronics, and their solar panels are no exception. With a best-in-class warranty of 25 years on product, power, and workmanship (a.k.a. a 25/25/25 warranty), this is an outstanding choice for all homeowners concerned with aesthetics and longevity. Panasonic HIT Modules boast the lowest degradation rate of any panel in the world. Most panel manufacturers guarantee around 80%, but Panasonic guarantees over 90% efficiency at the end of warranty period. Higher efficiency in high temperatures is another great feature for our local climate to beat the Utah summer heat, a great choice for the customer looking for a quality product from a reputable manufacturer.

Option 3

Solaria Power XT 360

Option 3 is the panel with the best appearance with fewer gaps between the solar cells for a more even-looking surface. This panel also works best in conditions with partial shading, and is available for $2.90/watt. Solaria panels are a patented “shingled” construction allowing for maximum solar cell coverage of the panel’s face. The special design also allows for higher function in shaded conditions, due to having more independent sections of cells within the module. Unrivaled aesthetic appearance and top-of-the-line efficiency make Solaria an excellent premium choice.

Community Partner

DISCLAIMER: Eligible homeowners who desire to participate in the Summit Community Power Works (SCPW) Solar Program will work directly with the selected installer to get a bid based on the size, location and energy use of their home. Homeowners who decide to install solar will contract directly with the installer – SCPW and Utah Clean Energy (UCE) will not be a party to the contract – and the panels will be installed on a first-come, first-served basis. Participating homeowners are solely responsible for negotiating and agreeing upon the terms of the contracts and related payment and financing arrangements. SCPW and UCE are not in a position to make, and do not make, any representations or guarantees about the installer or their work. Participating homeowners need to do their own due diligence and be satisfied that the installer can and will provide the homeowner with what the homeowner needs and expects. As a condition of participation in the SCPW Solar Program, and acknowledging SCPW and UCE’s role as facilitators of the discount Program, all participating homeowners agree to release SCPW and UCE from, and agree that SCPW and UCE will not have any responsibility or liability for: (i) the work performed by an Installer, (ii) any payment or financing related to such work, and (iii) any claim that may arise in connection with any of the contracts between a homeowner and the installer.
