Selecting the right solar panels for your home is among the most important decisions you will make regarding your solar installation; perhaps second only to choosing the right solar installer. The job is not made any easier by the countless products available from innumerable solar manufacturers.

So, here’s a quick guide to help you make this crucial decision.

  • Start With Your Financial Goals

That’s another way of saying, let’s discuss money. How much money do you want to save? How much money do you want to spend? How much money do you want to earn? Answers to these questions will lead you to the best solar panels for your needs.

If you wish to save more and earn more in the long run, then you will have to invest in the highest quality solar panels, which, in turn will expand your budget. But the cost savings and revenue they generate will easily recover all your costs in about 6 years. 

  • Power Generation Efficiency

Its power generation efficiency rating will determine the amount of power generated by your solar panels. Even in the same amount of sunlight, high-efficiency PV cells produce more solar power. So, you will need fewer of them to meet your power needs.

  • Brand

Power generation efficiency, reliability, and performance are the characteristics of solar panels that determine brand goodwill in the solar industry. When you go for the most reputed solar brands in the business, such as LG, QCell, or Jinko, you won’t be disappointed with your experience. 

  • Warranty

This is perhaps the most critical factor to consider when shopping for solar panels. You don’t want to end up with cheap solar panels that give up on you in a few short years. Solar installation is a long-term investment. You should reap its rewards for at least 25-30 years. Some of the best brands in business last as long as 40 years.

So, go for solar panels with long warranties. At Green Power Energy, we deal in PV cells that come with 25-year warranties.

Additional Consideration 

To complement a highly reliable, resilient, and efficient solar panel system, we include microinverters and power optimizers instead of a regular inverter. Unlike the standard inverter, microinverters and power optimizers convert DC power from solar panels to AC at each solar panel. So, there’s no high-voltage Direct Current (DC), which can be deadly, coming from the roof to your home. Moreover, they deliver higher performance and make monitoring easier. The best part – there’s no single point of failure, unlike inverters, so even when a microinverter or power optimizer fails, the rest of them continue to produce power. 

A reliable system translates to more power generation, more money savings, and more income.
