It is okay to wire dissimilar panels in parallel but not in series. If you can add these new and different PW 1000 modules to your existing Solarex SX 65's as a new parallel string then you can put them into the same charge controller. Of course the existing charge controller has to be large enough to handle all these solar panels with a 25% oversize for safety.
