Solar panels are the Big Rectangular Bits You See™ on your solar system. They’re the part that sprawls across your roof, captures the sun’s energy, generates power and sends it to the inverter. There’s plenty to consider when selecting panels that are right for you, from brand to efficiency to size and even colour.
Small solar setups might feature as few as eight panels, while larger systems will utilise energy from as many as 30+ individual panels. Ideally, solar panels are installed on a pitched roof to help keep them squeaky clean, while they can also be split across multiple roof surfaces. Installation direction can be an important factor, with north-facing panels able to capitalise on the sun’s rays best.
Panels come in black or blue, with silver or black edging, so you can choose a combo that suits your vibe…provided your vibe is black or blue with silver or black edging…Instant Solar Pricing
Which solar panel is right for me?
Your choice of solar panel totally depends on your needs. Some things to consider when making your decision are:
- Your household’s energy usage
- Price per Watt
- How much roof space you have
- Roof direction/angle for optimal solar electricity generation
- STCs and Government Rebates
- Financing and payment
