Renogy 550 Watt Monocrystalline Solar Panel Overview
This Renogy High-powered 550-Watt Monocrystalline Solar Panel maximizes power output while minimizing installation space and system equipment costs, primarily used for utility-scale systems, solar power plants, residential and commercial applications. This solar panel combines high efficiency mono PERC cells with Half-Cell and 10-Busbar technologies to improve the electrical performance and power output of your solar array system. Generate renewable energy, reduce electricity bills and carbon footprint.
A High-Powered Module: The Renogy Monocrystalline 2-piece solar panel is engineered with high-efficiency PERC (Passivated Emitter and Rear Contact) cells, capturing more light to achieve 22.8% conversion efficiency. Resulting in higher performance than most conventional panels, Renogy's 550-watt panels provide more output per surface area.
High Tolerance: Renogy's high-powered 550 watt solar panels are made with half-cell technology. This half-cut panel is more tolerant of shading on any part of the cell and performs excellently in low light situations due to the increased number of cells receiving more sunlight.
Space and Installation Optimization: A great option for large-scale installations, each solar panel can produce up to 2750 Wh of electricity per day and requires fewer installations per panel on your rooftop.
Reliable and Durable: Corrosion-resistant aluminum frame provides extended outdoor use that ensures the panel can last for decades. The IP68 rated junction box and solar connectors can withstand dirt, dust, debris, and water splashes.
Federal Tax Credit: Claim up to 26% of your home's new solar system costs (both equipment and installation) for a tax credit.
Renogy 550 Watt Monocrystalline Solar Panel Features
Higher Module Efficiency
Renogy's 550-watt monocrystalline solar panel provides an average of 2200-2750 Watt-hours (Wh) power per day (depending on sun availability).
It has passed the electroluminescence (EL) test for quality assurance. No hot spots.
More Power, Less Space
Engineered with industry-leading technologies, this high-powered 550 watt solar panel provides maximum power generation for your limited roof space.
It's an economical long-term investment for utility-scale systems, solar power plants, residential and commercial applications.
Corrosion-Resistant Aluminum Frame
Corrosion-resistant aluminum frame design ensures the solar panel survives in harsh outdoor environments, including the burning sun and heavy rain.
Provides an extended period of work time without damage or loss of performance.
Pre-Drilled Holes for Easy Installation
Renogy solar panels are equipped with back frame and ground mounting holes, ready for installation.
They are easy to mount and secure, ideal for off-grid, on-grid, and hybrid solar systems.
Extreme Weather Endurance
Withstand up to 5400 Pa of heavy snow load and up to 2400 Pa of high wind.
Provide excellent durability in a harsh environment.
IP68 rated waterproof junction box and solar connectors ensure that water and dust will not enter during extended outdoor use.
The built-in bypass diodes protect the solar cells from overheating, allowing the solar panel to perform during accidental shading by bypassing the underperforming cells.

1. Is each panel 550W or a whole combination? What about the size and weight?
550W per panel. The dimension of one panel is 89.7 x 44.6 x 1.4 inches, and the weight is 62.8 lbs.
2. How many kWh a day does this solar panel produce?
If your solar panels are exposed to 5 hours of direct sunlight per day, it can provide an average of 2200-2750 Watt-hours (2.2 kWh - 2.75 kWh) of electricity (depending on sun availability).
3.Why choose this high-powered 550W module rather than 5-6 100W solar panels?
High-powered solar panels are primarily used for utility-scale systems, solar power plants, solar farms, residential and commercial applications. Compared with 100 Watt solar panels, these high-powered 550 Watt modules provide maximum power generation for your limited roof space. They also allow the use of fewer mounting systems, including wiring cables, screws, or mounting brackets.
4. Can these panels be used on a grid-tied system?
Yes, they can. These high-powered 550 Watt solar panels work with on-grid, off-grid, and hybrid systems. But please note that when using them on on-grid and hybrid systems, we recommend that you contact a licensed solar installer familiar with on-grid/hybrid setups.
On-Grid solar system means solar power equipment (array or solar panel) is connected to the utility grid.
Off-Grid solar system refers to a system that is not connected to the grid. An Off-Grid system is not affected by grid blackouts.
A Hybrid system is when your solar panels remain connected to the grid's power lines and have a backup battery system to store excess power.
5. How should I connect solar panels to my electrical circuit (series vs parallel)?
Solar panels can be connected in series or in parallel to meet your electrical circuit size and power demand.
Connecting solar panels in series will have the effect of adding up their operating voltage output, while system current output will be the same as that for one panel.
While connecting solar panels in parallel will have a different effect. The output current will add up to be the system output current, while system output voltage will be the same as the output voltage of one solar panel.
To meet your power system's optimum power output and system rating, you can use parallel and series connections.
6. Do these panels have pre-drilled holes on the back?
Yes, they have. The pre-drilled holes help you to install the solar panel quickly and securely.
7. Can this solar panel be adapted to a 12V Marine Battery or 48V Lithium Battery?
Yes, it can. The optimum operating voltage of this 550W solar panel is 41.97V. So it's suitable to use for charging your 12V Marine Battery and 48V Lithium Battery (by connecting at least two solar panels in series). Please note that you need to connect the solar panel(s) to a Charge Controller supporting a 12V or 48V system.
8. What do I need to have to complete my off-grid solar power system?
Here’s a list of all the equipment required for a functioning off-grid solar system:
Solar Panels, Solar Charge Controller, Inverter(s), Battery, Mounting and Racking System, Wiring Cables, and Fuses.
I purchased a Jackery power station from Outbound Power at a super low price that was further discounted because of my veteran status. Shipping was fast and free. Upon receipt I discovered that the unit had a problem. I contacted Bill at Outbound Power. He worked with me to promptly get a warranty replacement directly from Jackery. Bill stayed on top of it through the entire process to make sure it was accomplished promptly and smoothly. Top notch customer service.
It was truly a pleasure to help you. We are here if you ever need further assistance. Thank you for your service! - Bill
A well built hose long enough to keep the propane tank far enough away from the ALP generator. This is a well constructed hose with the longer attachment to screw directly in to the ALP generator without having to use the supplied short hose. A great improvement over the previously supplied braided hose originally supplied in the past.Thanks OutbounPower!
Thank you for your thoughtful review and we're happy the hose has worked out so well for you. We appreciate your business!
