    Default 400w Canadian solar panel cover broken

    I have a panel that still gives full power but the protective glass() over the cells is broken.

    Is it possible to repair or should I just chuck it?

    Happen to me couple of years back when panels were quit expensive. I just painted the glass with some sealant and it worked quit good for years.

    I have wondered about this. It appears that solar panels are like a picture with a frame. Unfortunately the "frame" is usually put on with an adhesive which could be tricky. Maybe clean the broken glass and put a new aluminium frame and glass over the top the broken glass and frame which you can seal as well.
    ie a frame over a frame. An aluminium frame and piece of tough glass should not be too expensive.
