About product

G10.3 BFG 485W is a model that uses a number of technologies to bring durability and performance to the next level. G10.3 BFG 485W employs monocrystalline silicon — the most efficient material for converting sunlight into electricity. Each of the model's 156 solar cells consists of a single crystal, unlike cheaper polycrystalline cells that are made of multiple crystals melted together. As a result, not only are monocrystalline panels more efficient, but they are also more resistant to degradation. To further boost the performance, Q CELLS employs half-cut cell technology. Each of the panel’s 156 cells is only half the size of a traditional solar cell. This grants G10.3 BFG 485W lower resistive losses and better shade tolerance. At 20.9% efficiency, G10.3 BFG 485W offers surprising performance for its weight and size. And while conventional panels use only one side to absorb photons, bifacial modules employ both sides at the same time. Thanks to the technology, this model can be up to 30% more efficient. Q CELLS offers 10 years of product warranty and guarantees 84.95% of original performance after 30 years of operation. 

  • 485 W power output
  • 156 half-cut monocrystalline cells
  • 20.9% efficiency
  • 1500 V DC maximum system voltage
  • MC4 connectors
  • 10-year product and 30-year performance warranties


More power and efficiency

An already high efficiency of 20.9% is further enhanced by monocrystalline technology. By adding a solid PID resistance and special glass lamination on top, the manufacturer ended up with an efficient and very durable model. Under standard test conditions, G10.3 BFG 485W outputs 485 W of power.

Excellent performance in adverse weather

Low temperature coefficient means greater energy production at high operating temperatures. G10.3 BFG 485W loses just 0.34% of efficiency for every 1.8°F above 77°F.

High quality standards

Q CELLS strict manufacturing standards include multiple tests to provide extreme quality assurance. The facilities are highly automated, allowing the company to maintain high standards and keep the level of warranty claims very low.

Reliability and degradation resistance

Slow degradation over the next 30 years is guaranteed by Q CELLS. The performance will decrease no more than 2% during the first year and then will be limited to 0.45% annually. Your modules will retain at least 84.95% of original performance after the 30 years are over. This 485 W Q CELLS solar panel also comes with a generous 10-year product warranty.


Enhanced frame design

G10.3 BFG 485W design makes it ideal for residential and commercial rooftops. Strong 1.38" frame made from anodized aluminum increases durability and strength. The model can support a heavy snow load up to 5400 Pa. The back of the panel can handle 2400 Pa, ensuring that your system will survive the strongest of winds.

One of these panels was struck by two errant golf balls soon after installation. It's interesting that the production of power was hardly impacted. Really built to last

Can I use a Visa and a Mastercard together through your split payment feature`?
Yes, you can use up to three cards, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and others.
I want to buy this panel, but I need less than the minimum order. Is it possible?
There is no minimum if you opt for pickup.
The datasheet says ideal for ground-mounted, is it a good idea to install these panels on a roof?
This model is bifacial, which means there is an additional performance boost from exposing the back side of the panels to light. This is not as easy to achieve on a standard residential roof.

FAQ

How much is shipping and how long is delivery?
Our standard shipping charge is $250 for up to 11 panels and it is increased by $25 for every 4 additional panels. In the event, the product is only available on East or West coast custom quote will be sent to you before the order is processed. Normally, we are able to deliver solar panels within 7 business days.
What is the difference between low price panels and top price panels?
With top tier solar panels, you pay for the brand name, proprietary new technology, higher energy output, and better warranty support.
What are the dimensions of the panel?
Please refer to the product datasheet on the product page. We have a datasheet for every product we sell.
How long is the warranty on the panel?
In general, manufacturers provide a 25 year-long performance warranty and a 10 year-long equipment guarantee. Some manufacturers offer 12-15 years of warranty. More information is available in our warranty support section.
Which panels do you recommend for RV, marine?
We recommend Panasonic and Mission Solar panels for smaller systems as their high energy output and excellent craftsmanship guarantee years of service.
Can this panel be used with a 12v system?
Any of our panels can be used for a 12v system with a properly selected inverter and charge controller.
Can I pick up this panel from your fulfillment center to save on shipping?
Yes, we can set up a pick up at a local distributor. Please call to discuss options and stock availability.
How do I connect these panels?
To achieve the best system efficiency, panels should be connected in series to create higher voltage.
How many panels do I need?
This number is determined by your average energy needs. Depending on the type of panels and energy consumption, you might need anywhere from 12 to 45 solar panels. Remember, the more panels you install the more energy you will get.Please use our solar calculator to estimate your energy consumption and plan on building a solar system that will exceed your energy needs by 25%.
Do you offer discounts?
We do offer discounts for orders of over 50 units. Please contact us for details.
How do I build a solar system?
Please use our solar calculator to estimate what equipment you need. Choose your panels, microinverters, inverters, and solar batteries if necessary.Please note that we do not offer solar system design or installation.
How do solar panels compare?
Solar panels differ by power output, voltage, connection type, size, efficiency, and weight. Some solar panels might be sold together with microinverters as a set.
Can I build a solar system by myself as a Do It Yourself project?
Yes, it is possible if you understand what solar equipment you need and how to connect it together. However, please be mindful that handling your own electrical work without having proper experience might cause life-threatening injuries. Please contact a certified electrician if you do not possess appropriate electrical skills.
Can I connect and charge my solar panel battery directly with the solar panel?
We do not recommend using the solar panel without the charge controller. Using solar panels without the charge controller might damage the batteries.
Can I drill holes into the aluminum frame for mounting?
We do not recommend drilling any new holes to the aluminum frame of the panel as it could damage the internal circuit and solar cells. (Also, any modification to the panel will void the warranty). We recommend only using the pre-drilled holes for mounting.
Do solar panels require maintenance? Can I wash my solar panel?
Solar panels generally require very little maintenance. We recommend cleaning the solar panel with water, glass cleaner (Windex) and microfiber cloth.
Will my panel produce power in an overcast condition?
While solar panels require sunlight to generate solar energy, they will still work in cloudy weather. Even on a cloudy day, solar panels will produce energy just not as much.
Will my panels produce power if covered with snow?
Solar panels cannot produce electricity if covered with snow.
What is the best direction for a solar panel to face?
The best direction for a solar panel to face is the South
