Choosing your Solar Panels
They may look pretty similar, but not all solar panels are created equal.
With so many brands of solar panels on the market it can be difficult to know you are making a good choice. The below points will help you consider the main factors when choosing your solar panels.
We’re proud to offer a huge range of solar panels from all the world’s leading manufactures. We’re completely unbiased, so all our recommendations are based purely on what we believe to be the best option for you.
There are two things to look out for here. The product warranty tells you how long the manufacturer will guarantee the workmanship of the panels for, while the performance guarantee indicates how the performance will decline over the panel lifetime. Ensuring this warranty will be honored is another good reason to look into the manufacturer that makes your chosen panel. No point in choosing a cheap pop up company if they are not around 5 years time.
Some panels are more efficient than others, so they’ll produce more power for a smaller surface area. When comparing solar panels ensure your chosen panel has a plus power tolerance. For example a 250W panel with +/-5% power tolerance means the manufactures guarantees the panel will be 5% less or 5% more than 250W’s this could mean the 250W could actually only be 237.5W. All good panels have + tolerances which means the panel will be at least 250W but could be as much as 262.5W.
