Considerations When Picking Your Solar Panels

Dimensions
Solar panels come in all shapes and sizes. When deciding on where and how you will be mounting your panels, take panel dimensions into consideration--especially with rooftop applications. For example, small panels with higher wattage allow you to get the most out of a rooftop with limited space, but come at a higher cost per watt.

Cell Chemistry
Mono PERC technology has become the standard for most residential and commercial solar panel applications. "N-Type" chemistry brings a higher caliber of efficiency (about 2-4% more efficiency points). Solar panels with Mono PERC cell chemistry are suitable for most applications. However, solar panels with N-type chemistry are better if you're working with limited space and looking to maximize efficiency per square foot.

Color
Solar panels generally come in two color types; silver, black or a mix of both. Color has no effect on performance, so choosing the right solar panel color is completely up to your personal tastes. All premium solar panels come in all black option only, while more cost effective solutions come with an aluminum trim option, both panels come with a 25 year warranty and are built to last.

Cost
Comparing the price of different solar panels typically comes down to looking at cost-per-watt. For example, let's say a particular 300-watt panel costs $250. This panel would have a cost of $1.20 per watt. Panels with a higher cost-per-watt are more expensive, but are usually more efficient, meaning you can get more power out of fewer total panels.To help decide which panels are right for you, first take a look at your available roof space and your monthly power usage. That way, you can start to compare the prices of different panels on a cost-per-watt.

Frequently Asked Questions About Solar Panels

What Are the Best Solar Panels?

The best solar panel will really depend on your specific energy needs and aesthetic preferences.

Typically, you want to look for a reputable solar panel brand that has a standard 25-year warranty. [ Learn More ]

Are Solar Panels Worth It?

Solar panels, when paired with the optimal inverter(s), provide a great long-term return on investment and help the environment.

Factors that impact solar panel value are: 1) system type, 2) component selection, and 3) financing or payment method. [ Learn More ]

What is the ROI of Solar Panels?

ROI stands for return on investment. Like adding a new kitchen to your home, you increase the value of your property more than the original construction costs.

Solar is similar in that it brings immediate increased value to your property (4% increase on home market value). But solar panels also eliminate your energy bills — which over time exceed the original installation cost of the solar panel system and provide more long-term savings. [ Learn More ]

What's better: Solar Leases or PPAs?

Solar leases and PPAs (Power Purchasing Agreements) are used interchangeably, but there’s a critical difference between the two.

Under a solar lease, you pay a monthly lease amount, calculated using the amount of electricity the panels are expected to produce over 20 to 25 years. With a power purchase agreement, you don’t rent the system, but instead, buy the system's power at a flat rate per kWh. [ Learn More ]

Can I Get Free Solar Panels?

You may hear about companies that install free solar panels on your home. Yet, here’s the catch: you don’t own the system.

Instead, you sign a 20 to 25-year solar lease agreement or PPA, losing out on several thousands of dollars in financial incentives and end up paying double what you would to your local utility company (don’t do it!).[ Learn More ]

Read More
How Many Solar Panels Do I Need for My Home?

Every system is different. It’s hard to answer this question without understanding your energy consumption.

However, a typical solar panel kit will have between 16-40 solar panels for an average household. [ Learn More ]
