pickup at Walmart

Walmart offers the Renogy 100-Watt 12-Volt Monocrystalline Solar Panel for $84.54. Opt for in-store pickup to drop that to $81.83. That's $5 under yesterday's mention and the lowest price we've seen. (It's the best price we could find today by $6, although most merchants charge well over $100.) Buy Now

@roygbiv, Your defense of Rich Solar is every bit as "staunch".

Repeating what I said at the top of my comment: "I have no affiliation with the industry."

You apparently do not realize a 100 watt panel is a 100 watt panel. Efficiency is at the cell level and does not change the output of the panel!

Renogy has several 100 watt panels. Efficiency determines the size of the panel at a given power spec.

So with Renogy, you can choose to go with a slightly larger panel to save money or pay the same price (or less) as Rich Solar for a similar size panel. I just paid $85 for a 100 watt Renogy panel. I've not seen Rich Solar panels at less than $99.

And, I'm not seeing any panels over 190 watts or at 24 volts on Rich Solar's site.

And I've never had any issues with Renogy packaging.

If you love Rich Solar, stick with them - no skin off my back.

But your original claim "RichSolar is much better," stands corrected.

RichSolar for 100w, 12v, is better value and efficiency. I have both brands, and use it for emergency preparedness.

this might be duplicate response because I don't see my longer comment. anyway, I am a regular consumer sharing my opinion.

are you affiliated with Renogy?
roygbiv
blue Oak, no affiliation, just a regular consumer. I have both panels, Renogy and RichSolar.

same 100w, 12V, monocrystalline, and the actual rating is significantly higher on the RichSolar! 78-85% efficiency on RichSolar.

additionally, RichSolar cost is less, and the packaging is superb.


given your staunch defense, are you affiliated with Renogy??
BlueOak
Rich Solar, better? Based upon what? Do you have an affiliation with them? I have no affiliation with the industry.

Both companies focus on smaller installations like RVs, cabins, and self-installs rather than commercial.

Their warranties are virtually identical.

But Renogy panels are more broadly distributed and as a result, typically available at lower prices for the same output.

And Rich Solar tops out at 190 watt, 12 volt panels whereas Renogy goes up to 300 watt, 24 volt panels.

RichSolar is much better,

These are excellent panels for that price.

BTW, the actual panel at the Walmart page is also sold by Amazon, currently $84.54.

Product error. The linked panel at Walmart appears to be the RNG-100D-SS (compact model). The give away: the Walmart linked model has Dimensions: 42.2 X 19.6 X 1.38 in.

The bullet-pointed "regular" RNG-100D described by Dealnews above is a more expensive panel and its demension are 47.3" x 21.3" x 1.4". It tends to sell for about $125 on Amazon but recently dipped to $90. We own several panels of this model.

Renogy sells several 100 watt panels.

Still, a nice deal for the compact "SS" model panel.
