Astronergy’s CHSM 6610M 230-watt solar panel is a great choice if aesthetics are a priority. Its black backsheet and black frame are what give it its sleek look. Aesthetics aside, this 60-cell mono-crystalline solar panel is uncompromising when it comes to power output and efficiency. Built to last, it will stand up to harsh weather conditions including wind, snow and hail, and is appropriate for most any commercial or residential application.
The CHSM 6610M 230-watt solar panel is covered by a “double warranty”. Like most competing brands, it is guaranteed to produce 90% of its rated power for the first 10 years, and greater than 80% for the remaining 15 years. Astronergy will compensate you for any additional efficiency losses, should they occur. If, for some reason, Astronergy is not able to cover these warranties, their re-insurance will back their product, giving you added security no matter what happens in the ever-changing renewable energy market. Read here how it works.
As with any solar panel from Astronergy, the CHSM 6610M is subject to rigorous quality control standards. Modules are tested before the lamination process, and then again before they leave the plant. Astronergy modules are also cUL and UL listed.

Astronergy is made by Chint Industries, a large electrical manufacturing conglomerate based in China. Astronergy modules are highly-bankable, since they’re made and guaranteed for high-performance and longevity by this Tier One manufacturer. State-of-the-art production lines produce Astronergy’s solar cells from high quality silicon wafers, which are then assembled into solar modules. Astronergy offers a wide range of efficient and reliable monocrystalline solar panels.
Precision Solar Cell Manufacturing
Astronergy is the first PV company in Mainland China to use the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) in solar cell production. The products, processes, and equipment are strictly controlled using SPC tools for the highest quality and performance.
State-of-the-Art Solar Module Manufacturing
Solar cells are first sorted within the same power range and efficiency. They are then further sorted by the short circuit current in order to minimize losses caused by electric-mismatch.
IV and EL tests are preformed before the lamination to ensure the consistency of the encapsulated cells and process reliability.
The EL test is repeated on each module before shipping to ensure the product’s quality and reliability.
Modules are assembled with high quality, smooth aluminum alloy frames.
