What Type of Solar Panel do I Beed?

You have made the decision to install solar panels at your house or business in order to generate your own (clean!) electricity, but you’re not sure which solar panels to pick. This list should help you make a wise purchase, we hope. Always keep in mind that purchasing a solar panel system is a long-term investment, so there are many factors to consider besides just the cost.

1. Solar Panel Cost:
When comparing solar panels, this is likely the first consideration for most people. The cost of a solar panel is affected by a number of factors, including the size (in Watts), physical size, brand, material quality, durability (or warranty period), and any certifications the solar panel may have.

A crucial tip for selecting solar panels is to take the price into account. The least expensive panel might not be the most efficient or even the best choice when looking at the long term, so it shouldn’t be the only factor taken into account. Choosing solar panels can be risky, but since they last a long time (more than 30 years), it is crucial to make sure you make the right choice.

2. Solar Panel Quality: This considers the solar panel’s manufacturing process and the caliber of the materials used to construct it. The quality, cost, and efficiency of the panels produced by various manufacturers vary. Manufacturers of solar panels with vertical integration have complete control over the entire production process. They pay close attention to quality and make significant investments in research and development (R&D).

There are other producers who only put panels together, but they typically don’t make their own cells and don’t spend money on R&D. They produce panels at the lowest cost but with a higher human production rate.

When selecting a solar panel supplier, it is a good idea to read customer reviews or company histories to learn about each one’s performance.

3. Energy Efficiency: The amount of light that is converted into electrical energy by a solar panel determines how much power your system will produce. The better, the more effective (and more expensive). Purchasing the largest and most effective solar panel is not always the best option because you risk spending more money than necessary to meet your energy and power needs.

You should evaluate your needs and choose the panel that best meets them. This means that you shouldn’t undervalue your power requirements but also shouldn’t overestimate them either. Similarly to that, you don’t need a Porsche to drive your kids to school (you can have it of course, but you can do the same spending a lot less).

4. Temperature Coefficient: This is a reference to how heat affects how effectively solar panels work after they are installed. The better the percentage per degree Celsius, as overheating solar panels speeds up their aging.

5. Durability: This might be a sign of the manufacturer’s faith in its goods. Solar panels typically come with a 25-year warranty (as long as the company operates). If the manufacturer does not provide a longer warranty period, you might assume that their product is inferior and that they do not want to accept any liability. 

In this situation, exercise caution to avoid being duped by an alluring price because you might come to regret it later. Of course, keeping your solar panels in good condition will lengthen their lifespan. 

Fortunately, they don’t need a lot of maintenance and are simple to care for.

6. Size: Both the actual size and the size in Watts are considered. Make sure to install a solar panel system that is large enough to power all of your appliances and that it can be installed in the space needed. The physical dimensions of the panel will vary depending on the system’s power (the bigger the panel, the more Watts it has) and the kind of solar cells that were used to make it. A 4kW solar system would typically be needed for an average household. Watts are related to the panel’s output (a 200 Watt panel will, under ideal circumstances, produce 200 Watt-hours per hour, whereas a 100 Watt panel will produce 100 Watt-hours), and they are also directly related to the cost of the panel.

7. Types of solar cells used: Different solar panel types and efficiencies are available. Even though their names may be unclear, it is a good idea to know that, if your supplier happens to mention this, at least the name is not off-topic. With a small footprint, monocrystalline silicon has high efficiency and good heat tolerance properties. 

Solar Panels made of polycrystalline (or multi-crystalline) silicon cells are currently the most popular option for residential installations. Amorphous (or thin-film) silicon cells are another option, but they are not very effective and use the least amount of silicon. A crystalline panel will be smaller than an amorphous panel for an equivalent wattage.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How Do Solar Panels Work?

The silicone cell is in charge of collecting solar energy and converting it into what is known as DC energy. After that, it passes through an inverter to create AC current that can be used inside your house or place of business.

How Strong Are The Solar Panels?

A solar panel is more than capable of withstanding harsh environmental conditions due to its design. Solar panels can withstand the typical South African weather thanks to the aluminum frame and the tempered glass covering the interior cells.

How Long Do The Solar Panels Last?

Even though solar panel warranties typically last ten years or less, this does not necessarily mean the panels stop being effective at this point. In actuality, solar panels can continue to collect sunlight for up to twenty years. But as time passes, the level of effectiveness declines.

Should They Be Roof Mounted or on the Ground?

You have the option of either a roof-mounted array or a ground-mounted array, depending on the size of your roof or your property.

Can you Mix Different Solar Panels into one System?

If you need to add to an existing system and need to use a different module, it is quite possible and acceptable. Just make sure the power rating on the new panels is the same as the existing solar panels to get the best benefits from your system. It is always advised to use the same solar panels on one system.

What Other Equipment will I need with the Solar Panels?

You will need an inverter to convert the power to 220-230 volts to run your standard equipment. If you require backup or storage you will need to add batteries to your system.
