EUGENE, Ore. - Grape Solar has expanded its portfolio of solar panels to include four new high-powered modules in its Platinum series, ranging from 395 W to 410 W, all UL certified. According to the company, these large panels reduce racking hardware and installation labor costs on large commercial solar projects.

The Grape Solar Platinum series panels use 96 pieces of 6-inch high-efficiency monocrystalline solar cells to boost power production by more than 70 percent over conventional 230 W modules. Higher powered modules mean that installations will require 44 percent less panels, said the company. This translates to a cost savings that directly affects the bottom line. The panels are said to work well with most standard inverters and are suited to both roof mount and ground mount applications.

Grape Solar is a leading solar panel manufacturer and solar kit integrator with direct relationships with independent installers as well as with consumers through leading big box chain stores and online retailers such as Amazon.com. Grape Solar offers solar panels ranging from 100 W to 400 W and various solar kits for residential and commercial installations.
