EnergySage has reviewed the product specifications of each Axitec solar panel series to make your solar research process easier. As the leading online marketplace for homeowners considering solar, EnergySage is uniquely positioned to evaluate the technical specifications of Axitec solar panels and help you compare them to other manufacturers on the market.

There are four key metrics that you should review as you evaluate solar panel quality: efficiency, performance, warranties, and price. EnergySage has developed Axitec panel reviews for each metric to help make your solar decision easier.

Based on EnergySage's analysis, Axitec solar panels are a good investment for homeowners and businesses seeking reasonably priced panels for their solar installation. For solar shoppers seeking a bargain, lower-end Axitec products can be a good option, but the company also has some panels that offer above-average efficiency (at a slightly higher price). Axitec panel warranties are also slightly above industry standard, an indicator that the company is willing to stand behind its products.

Look at how Axitec solar panels compare against other leading panel manufacturers frequently featured in offers to homeowners and businesses shopping for solar on the EnergySage Solar Marketplace. You can learn more about each of these criteria in the breakdown below.


"Solar panel efficiency" refers to how well a solar panel captures sunlight and converts it into useful electricity. In the same conditions, a high-efficiency solar panel will produce more electricity than a lower-efficiency panel of the same size. For this reason, a higher efficiency rating is generally preferable.

The efficiency of your Axitec panels will vary depending on the specific model you choose for your system. Axitec solar panels have efficiency ratings ranging from 15.37% to 20.45%. In general, Axitec offers a variety of panels that are suitable for most solar shoppers looking for a reasonably priced option.

Performance (Temperature Coefficient)

We use the temperature coefficient to evaluate solar panel performance for this portion of EnergySage's Axitec solar panel reviews. The temperature coefficient indicates how well your solar panel can handle less-than-ideal conditions. Solar panels, like other electronic equipment, perform better when kept cool (ideally around 25° C/77° F). The temperature coefficient tells you how much your panel's performance will change during hot sunny summer days.

For every degree above 25° C (77° F), your solar panel's electricity production will decrease by its temperature coefficient. For example, the AC-275M/156-60S panel has a temperature coefficient of -0.40%/°C. This means that if the panel's temperature increases by one degree from 25° C (77° F) to 26° C (79° F), its electricity production will decrease by 0.4%. If its temperature increases to 35° C (95° F), electricity production will reduce by 4.0%.

Your solar panels will likely see more than a few hot and sunny days each year, so ideally, they will have the lowest temperature coefficient possible. As you can see in the graph below, Axitec solar panel temperature coefficient ranges from -0.44 to -0.26%/°C.


Whether you're buying a TV, a car, or solar panels, the manufacturer should stand behind their product with a strong warranty. A solar panel's materials warranty (sometimes referred to as the product or equipment warranty) is a guarantee from the manufacturer that they will replace your panel if it fails due to manufacturing defects or environmental issues.

Axitec offers a 25-year warranty against any defects in their solar panels.

For many homeowners, the final decision around the solar equipment they choose rests on cost. The total price you pay for a solar energy system with Axitec panels will vary depending on the other equipment (such as inverters and mounts) used in the installation and the characteristics of your roof.

To identify the range of prices for Axitec PV systems, we analyzed quotes, including Axitec solar panels that homeowners received from installers on the EnergySage Marketplace. Most Axitec PV systems are typically priced between $2.17 and $2.83 per watt. On the lower end, they can be a great deal for solar shoppers searching for a cheap system, and on the high end, they are in line with what you can expect to pay for a standard option.

This means that, for a 6 kW system, your gross cost (before you subtract any tax credits or other incentives) would be anywhere from $13,020 to $16,980. Additionally, most homeowners pay much less than the total gross cost. With the 30% federal tax credit for solar, a 6 kW system with Axitec panels would cost anywhere from $9,114 to $11,886. Plenty of state-level solar incentives and rebates can help you reduce upfront costs even further.

The best way to determine whether Axitec offers the best solar panels for your home is to review multiple quotes with different solar equipment options before deciding. When you compare your options on the EnergySage Marketplace, you'll find the right combination of price and quality that meets your needs.

Many of our qualified, vetted solar installers offer Axitec solar panels in their quotes to EnergySage users. When registering, note in your profile that you're interested in receiving quotes that include Axitec panels for your home.
