Solar Maintenance do’s and don’ts


Solar Maintenance do’s and don’ts

Do keep the solar panels clean from dirt and leaves to ensure maximum efficiency. Don’t let trees and shrubs cast shadows over your solar panels – keep nearby plants trimmed. Do use an expert for advanced maintenance, such as changing an inverter. Do monitor when you most use your electricity, as batteries can be used to store electricity if you are not using the energy during daylight. Now you know the Do’s and Don’ts of solar panels, you are ready to start your solar panel adventure. Solar Panels have come a long way in recent years, and installation prices have never been better, so it is a great time to consider this great source of renewable energy

Difference between monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar panels?

We want to introduce you to two popular types of Solar panel technologies that dominate 80% of the photovoltaic market: monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar panels. But what are the differences between them, you may ask? While both are reliable and have a mature market, they differ in shape and performance. Monocrystalline Silicon Solar Panels Monocrystalline, also called single crystalline silicon solar panels, are easily recognizable due to their external dark black color. They are made from cylindrical silicon ingots that are cut into wafers and have higher efficiency; thanks to the purity of the silicon, they can better exploit the sun irradiation. Advantages High-efficiency Smaller installation area needed in comparison with other types. Long life-span (25-year warranty) Good performance under low irradiation conditions. Disadvantages They are the most expensive solar panels. Circuit breakdown when the solar panel is covered with dirt, shade or snow. Lower performance while increasing the operating temperature. Silicon waste during the manufacturing process. Polycrystalline Silicon Solar Panels Polycrystalline are also known as multi-crystalline solar panels and, unlike monocrystalline solar […]
