The last few years the energy market switched from energy generating to looking for more green alternatives for nuclear or coal energy. Although the start up costs for a solar panel can be very expensive, the investment will definitely pay out when you will view your energy bills every month.
Solar panels are in a lot of different sizes and types, but the most important thing about solar panels is the type of material you choose. There are a total of three materials from which you can choose from, namely thin film, monocrystalline and polycrystalline material. The factors of difference between the three are price and yield. To learn how to get the most out of your solar panels, you should read this article.
Because of the thin film, the solar panels made of thin film are very flexible. Also because it isn’t made of crystal, the thin film solar panels are the cheapest kind of solar panel. The downside of the lower price is the yield you are able to achieve with it. The yield is a lot lower than with crystal solar panels.
The monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar panels kinda look the same, however there is one big difference between the two. The difference is hidden inside the name, whereas the monocrystalline is one piece of crystal and the polycrystalline is created by a lot of crystal fragments. The monocrystalline panels are the most expensive due to its yield compared to the other two kinds of panels. These panels are the best choice for people who want the best yield for their square feet.
The polycrystalline solar panels are made of small crystal fragments which look like glass. The price of these panels are average compared to the other two kinds of panels, and it has a decent yield. The yield can be optimalized if you have a lot of space on your roof.
Besides buying a solar panel and put it on your roof, you also need to clean and service your solar panel, or else it would be wasted money to invest for one time and then let it rust on your roof.
Although cleaning your solar panel yourself can be easy (if you are not afraid of heights), there is also a possibility to let a good friend or neighbour else clean your solar panels. Another possibility is to find someone who is specialized in Solar Panel Cleaning so that your solar panel can produce Solar Clear energy again. The last possibility is to install a Solar Panel Cleaning Installation which will clean your solar panel automatically.
