Questions & Answers

Is that 265W total output of all 4 panels or is that 265W per panel?

How much power do you get from this product? What can it power? Could it keep a refridgerator running?

Asked by: jogger
The short answer is "easily." I have my 4 wired in series and am using an MPPT type charge controller. So, under load, we have about 120VDC coming in to the controller charging 8 GC-2 Golf Cart batteries also wired in series and a 48V, 2KW inverter. This runs my fridge, freezer and one other optional circuit 24/7 with enough headroom for a couple of cloudy days. The panels are mounted such that then can tilt / elevate to track the seasonal changes of the sun's elevation. Sized, designed and built is all myself and although a PE, this is not my discipline, it was not all that much of a reach outside my comfort zone. Building the mount was the single biggest challenge until I found this YouTube and I replicated his mount using 2-1/2" steel pipe for the posts: https://youtu.be/g6pC1t0m92M Next time they go on sale, I'm going to get 4 more !

What is the hail rating or impact rating on these? I live in Oklahoma so it's imperative that these withstand hail. Thx

Asked by: Curious
Grape solar specification sheet says that they meet UL 1703 standard for their GS-P60-265-Fab2 PV panels. Underwriter Laboratory (UL) 1703 Standard deals (in part) with impact testing. A paper at http://rci-online.org/wp-content/uploads/2012-CTS-koontz.pdf provides an overview of some UL 1703 impact testing with a 2" diameter steel sphere that generates 5 foot pound of energy. This is reported as equivalent to a ~2" diameter free-falling ice sphere at 22 foot-pounds. The paper discusses some of the dynamics of testing. Furthermore, Underwriter Laboratory site at https://www.ul.com/inside-ul/solar-panels-testing/ provides a description of impact testing under UL label 1703: (1) "drop a two-inch solid steel sphere from a height of 51 inches onto the surface of the PV module" and ( 2) a second test - "placing a perfectly formed spherical chunk of ice into a pneumatic cannon and firing the calibrated ice ball at 10 to 13 critical locations on the PV module.

Will four panels operate a motor home's electricity when it is sitting still? What does a motor home have that needs electricity: Air conditioner (13.5 BTU), coffee pot, microwave, television, computer.
Asked by: Steve
Hard question to answer. Do you have a dc to AC inverter. If so it has to be large enough for the load. Next question will be batteries how long will they go between charges. These panel with a charge controller should recharge a battery system .

265-Watt Polycrystalline Solar Panel (4-Pack) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 28.

Added another 4 panels a few months ago and that really made a difference. Just added another 4 panels and they run the meter backwards all day long. I redesigned the clothesline system to accommodate them and left room to add another 4 panels which I will probably do next year. I matched them with Enphase M250 micro-inverters and they have been working great. Here are the photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good solar panels - free ship to store price beats other online retail who charge shipping Very good solar panels - HD's free ship to store price beats other online retail who charge shipping but may have slightly lower prices. Mine came on a pallet which my local HD loaded with a pallet truck into the back of my F350. However, I could have just taken the panels 1-2-3-or-4 at a time in the back of my SUV. They were packed well with plastic holders from the factory between panels and the 4 panels wrapped in strapping. I was concerned since the pallet was horizontal in the truck and the road home is very rough and over several local bridges, but panels made it no problem. I got a TriStar-60 MPPT to interface between the panels and my battery bank - which is 8 Trojan T105-REs. I researched these large type of solar panels for months, if not years, as the prices came down. Most online retailers will charge shipping, which is more than likely a hundred plus dollars - for example that "back woods" online place. So their price plus shipping at the rating of this panel versus others is too steep. HD makes it affordable because they have free ship to store and a good return policy if they arrive cracked or damaged. The other online retailers probably make you pay for shipping back if that was the case. But in any case, they work really well. 1 kW (256w x 4) rated is a ton of power even on cloudy days and the wire resistance to get the power from the panels to the charge controller. These panels also come with standard MC-4 connectors, one male and one female per panel, already attached. I'm moving these panels from my main house to up in the mountains to the cabin project. Will be buying 4 more soon...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from solar panels was skeptical about buying polycrystalline panels instead of mono-crystalline because of the power output but the polycrystalline panels perform very well even in ambient light putting out almost there full open voltage. I would highly recommend theses Gape Solar panels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great Living in WI my 4 panels are at a 45° angle in a open area paired with Enphase M250 grid-tie inverters I am producing on a average of 7 kilowatts a day in August so far since I installed them 6 days ago. This has eliminated 1/2 of my electric bill after I did some power saving measures. My total with panels inverters homemade stand and misc wires came to $1800 so that's finished under $1.80 a watt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased the Grape 265 watt solar panels on sale through Home Depot in the month of December 2... I purchased the Grape 265 watt solar panels on sale through Home Depot in the month of December 2017. I had been previously looking for the most compact highest wattage panels at the best price when I discovered that my cousin had purchased a set of 4 on sale at the Home Depot website and saved approximately $340.00. He used his for the top of his fifth wheel trailer and told me that they were delivered quickly and seem to work as advertised without any problems to this point. He informed me that they became on sale again during the month of December 2017, so I bought 3 packages of 4 to create an approximate 3,000 watt max output array. With the sale savings, I saved enough to purchase a 4th set for basically free, but chose not to. In my research, I found that Grape solar panels are Chinese manufactured and distributed by an American company out of Oregon. When I purchased my panels through the Home Depot in Kent, Wa. on East Hill, the staff at the "Pro desk" were very helpful and actually called the distributor in Oregon so I could ask questions (such as needed accessories). In talking to the technical department, I was informed that I could email them my array plan and power needs, and they would basically make a list/plan of other needed components and how to hook everything up. This is a very important and valuable service especially for the DiY beginners. I ordered and paid for my panels the last week of December 2017, and was told at that time that they would be delivered (For Free) around the 16th of January 2018. To my happy surprise, I was contacted the first week of January that my panels were ready to be delivered the next day. The delivery company that was hired by the distributor/Home Depot were very professional and delivered all 12 panels in well protected crates (2 of them), the truck had a lift gate and a pallet jack for easy manoeuvring. Buyers need to understand that each crate of 4 weighs approximately 250 lbs. One crate had 2 sets of 4 (8 panels) that weighed approximately 500 lbs. The crated panels will take up a space approximately 4 feet by 6 feet (Aprox. a foot tall per stack of 4). I have not hooked them up yet, but all was professionally packaged and handled to date, plus my cousin says his are working fine on his 5th wheel. I recomend this product from Grape Solar through Home Depot (FYI...The distributor does not sell direct to the consumer). I hope this helps.

I have 9 of the 265 watt Grape panels mounted in 3 strings of 3 on top of my pergola feeding my Morningstar MPPT into a 48 volt battery bank. Averaging 2600 watt days in Nov and Dec, The system hit multiple peak days over 10,000 watts during early fall when I installed the system. Plus it makes a nice sun shade on the Pergola.

They are 35% more efficient per square inch, and they hit the roof exactly matching their factory specs. The delivery trucker was very nice and helped me not only get the pallet over to where I needed it, but helped me break it open and restack!

I purchase these panels to replace 130 Watt panels that I installed on my off grid system 9 years ago. These panels cost 40 percent of the panels being replaced but delivered twice the power. Great purchase from my standpoint.
