The truth is, that if you want electricity or hot water... you will be paying for that electricity or heat. You may prefer to pay your electric and gas utility bills "forever", or you may wish instead to "go solar", and become your own utility.

It is quite similar to the reason you once decided to buy your home and stop renting. Solar is simply the best investment available today because it guarantees a return on money that you will otherwise "burn" and helps you develop equity as you bank your savings.

When you buy a car, patio furniture, or refurbish your kitchen, you buy assets that do not payback (depreciating assets). A solar installation is an appreciating asset which rapidly pays-back your initial investment; and after payback occurs, it continues saving money for the next 20 years and more!

Solar is simply the best investment available today because it guarantees a return on the money you would otherwise "BURN" paying your fuel bills.

How different solar products compare

There are hundreds of photovoltaic panels on the market, many are quite similar, however panels do differ and we feel it is our duty to match the different panels to installations which make the most of these small differences. Because we favour the installation of solar systems utilising Micro Inverters, we are able to monitor all our installations, and can obtain direct feed-back on system performance.

Solar Panel Types

The 3 main types of solar panel technologies are: Monocrystalline , Polycrystalline and Thin film.

Monocrystalline – In a monocyrstalline panel, the semi-conductor is grown as single crystal and then carefully sliced into a thin layer, with each cell in the panel being made from a single slice off a silicone crystal. Panels being constructed in this manner have generally a high efficiency in converting sunlight to electricity.

Polycrystalline – In a polycrystalline panel, the cells are made from a large number of smaller crystals. These panels had a traditionally lower efficiency, however modern advances mean that they can be on a par with a monocystalline cell.

Thin Film – A thin film panel is created from depositing a layer of silicon on a glass base layer and then building it up layer by layer to form a solar cell. Panels created in this way have lower overall efficiencies, but they have a very good feature of not being overly affected by orientation, meaning that they can be laid flat, or even in a northerly direction!

A Hybrid panel is a combination of monocrystalline and thin film technologies, resulting in a very efficient solar panel, whilst they are more efficient they are more expensive. One of their key benefits is that they can produce more power from a smaller area, making them great for roofs where space is limited.

KEY factors : Available Surface area : Available Funds

Generally speaking:-

  • Higher efficiency panels Generate more Power per Square Meter. These are suitable for small roof area's where maximum output is required.
  • Lower efficiency panels can generate the same power but require 20% to 100% (Depending on the Panel selected) more surface area to do so.
