Choose Wisely – Power is Money!

Modern technology has enabled solar systems to work as a whole to generate maximum power.   This can increase power generation by up to 25%.  Solar panels can now work individually instead of in strings.  They can be put on different roof aspects which lets them absorb sunlight as the sun moves across the sky.  This has made the relatively small percentage difference between panel brands less important than it used to be.

Choosing a Solar Panel

Solarpro is independent unlike many other installers.  We select the panels and inverters we provide based on stringent research and we change these accordingly. Solarpro currently offers LG panels and a selection of others including the very popular Trina panel. They tick all the boxes of what you should expect of a panel and they go beyond in terms of performance.

Changes in the Solar Industry

Changes in the solar industry and available technology make it important to look beyond the marketing claims of ”most powerful panel” etc., and even reliance on well known brands.  It is important to look at the system as a whole, manufacturing processes and the Company.  For example, who would have thought Bosch solar would go out of business.  There are many other Solar manufacturers who are struggling. Solarpro conducts stringent quality research so you don’t have to.

Importance of Research

There used to be around 750 solar panel manufacturers in the World.  Now there are around 350.  The global manufacturing market can only really sustain 10 to 30.   It is increasingly important not just to make sure the panel is good quality and high power, but also to look at the inverter it will be used with and to fully investigate manufacturing and company details.  For example, a 25yr guarantee isn’t worth much if the company is likely to go out of business.  Individuals don’t have time or resources to do this and it is why Solarpro places so much importance on the research we do.

Panels v System as a Whole

One of the most powerful panels in the World can only work with a type of inverter that is 2 to 3% less efficient than other inverters.  So, you don’t actually get the full power the panel is potentially capable of producing.  Worth thinking about? This is why it’s so important to look at the system as a whole.
