Maximum voltage expected in solar systems

Trying to spec out a new LED board.  It would cost less to build if the board was designed to operate in the 10-24 volt range instead of a 10-30 VDC range. 

What is the maximum voltage I should expect to see in solar systems?  Would a 24 volt upper limit be a problem for many users?

Can't speak for everyone here but for most users here the 24 upper limit would be fine. Only a few actually doing 24 volt systems that would require a 30 on the high side.

Is that basically what it comes down to, 10-30 VDC for the 24 volt systems?

Agreed. My plan is to run off the CC, regulates @ 12.5 volts highest , never ran down below 12.2 volts.
