Factory Solar Issue

Brian and All,

Went up on my roof to clean and noticed that our two panels have this unusual cracking on the surface. Is this normal when I went up there 3 months ago when I bought the Isata 3 the appearance was smooth and no cracking. Any help would be appreciated

OK, we talked to another GoPower rep. When we get the panels, they have a plastic protective film on them. We normally take that off...I wonder if it got taken off of these panels?

Same stuff that electronics guys use to prevent scratches on the shiny parts.

Yea I spoke with Bob from Tech supper at Go Power. The problem is taking off the plastic now according to him is impossible. This will effect output. He said
No solvent can be used to remove plastic. What are we going to do ?

I'd still see if it can be removed. it should eventually flake off if its already breaking down
