Questions have been raised about Solly's future after the Addicks snared right-back Lawrie Wilson from Stevenage earlier this month.
However, Powell insists strength in depth will be key for the newly-promoted side and he has no intention of letting Solly go.
"Every manager wants two players for every position and that is how I see it," Powell told the South London Press.
"We all ran out of superlatives for Chris Solly last year - and he's going nowhere as far as I'm concerned.
"I know last season I was almost on tenterhooks that Chris wouldn't get injured because I didn't really have anyone else - I didn't want to put Michael Morrison out there and Andy Hughes was carrying an injury.
"I'm comfortable now that I've got two players who can fit in seamlessly there."
