Most houses use AC power, but solar panels generates DC power. Enter the inverter – problem solved.

This allows electricity to travel from the solar panels to the inverter and then into your house safely

Solar (PV) Panels are elegant devices that will sit on your rooftop and turn sunlight directly into electricity for decades, all without noise and emissions. How cool is that ?

Want to go totally off-the-grid ?, with batteries you can store you own electricity, consume when you want to, and say goodbye to electric bills! (Not required for grid-connected installations.)

Plugging your solar system into the power meter means flexibility. In many regions, when you’re not using your solar electricity, you may be able to share with neighbors and earn a credit from your local utility.

Mono vs Poly solar panels explained

Both monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar panels serve the same function in the overall solar PV system: they capture energy from the sun and turn it into electricity. They are also both made from silicon, which is used for solar panels because it is an abundant, very durable element. Many solar panel manufacturers produce both monocrystalline and polycrystalline panels.

Both mono and poly solar panels can be good choices for your home, but there are key differences between the two types of technology that you should understand before making your final solar purchase decision.

To make solar cells for monocrystalline solar panels, silicon is formed into bars and cut into wafers. These types of panels are called “monocrystalline” to indicate that the silicon used is single-crystal silicon. Because the cell is composed of a single crystal, the electrons that generate a flow of electricity have more room to move. As a result, monocrystalline panels are more efficient than their polycrystalline counterparts.

Polycrystalline solar panels are also made from silicon. However, instead of using a single crystal of silicon, manufacturers melt many fragments of silicon together to form the wafers for the panel. Polycrystalline solar panels are also referred to as “multi-crystalline,” or many-crystal silicon. Because there are many crystals in each cell, there is to less freedom for the electrons to move. As a result, polycrystalline solar panels have lower efficiency ratings than monocrystalline panels.
