We have sold over 1 Megawatt (One Million Watts) of used solar panels to happy customers. 

These panels are working perfectly. There were installed on a solar farm, half of which was damaged in a hail storm so the insurance company is paying to replace the whole installation with larger 260W panels.  These are the panels which were not damaged in the storm, and are all working 100% and only been installed for a few years.  The output on these panels is fine, but some of them have a cosmetic issue called "snail trails" where there are some silver trails across the cells.  This does not affect their performance, its purely a cosmetic issue and we have tested them to confirm they are fine.  As with all used panels there may be some marks or scratchs from where they were installed and they need cleaning, but their performance is great and they are at an absolute bargain price.  These panels have been stored outside for a long period, so will need a wipe down when they arrive with you.

These are great for use as 12V solar panels and an extremely popular size.  You can use them with either an MPPT or a cheaper PWM controller. 

We have a large batch but they will go quickly at this price.


Maximum Power: 175 watts
Maximum Power Voltage: 23 volts
Open Circuit Voltage: 29.3 Voc
Short-circuit Current: 8.29 amps
Model: SESE48-156M

Please note these panels do not have MC4 connectors on, and some of their connectors have been cut off when they were removed.  We would advise that you purchase MC4 connectors to put onto these panels.

Dimensions (LxWxD): 1334 x 994 x 40 mm
Weight: 17 kg


What are Snail Trails?

They have no effect on output, they are purely a cosmetic issue, and once on your roof who's going to see!  When they were removed from the solar farm they were performing to spec and we have tested them to ensure they are not affected by this cosmetic issue.  Below are a couple of photos of what some of the cells may look like.
