Understanding Solar Panel Generations

Fun Fact-  Did you know that the energy required for the world can be sufficed by the harvesting the power generated by the sun for just some minutes? Amazing, right?

Solar energy is a long-lasting and reliable energy source which is also efficient and cost-effective. We are reputed solar panel installers, and we have expertise in installing all types of solar panels. Each panel type caters to different needs. If you want to know your best pick, contact our team today.

1st Generation Solar Panels

These Solar panels are composed of Monocrystalline Silicon or Polysilicon. With high energy efficiency and output, these panels are ideal for residential energy requirements.

2nd Generation Solar Panels

Prime energy suppliers for photovoltaic power stations, these panels are integrated with small solar systems and buildings, for self-reliant energy supply. Also known as thin-film modules, these solar panels are composed of semiconductor material. The layers are just a few micrometres thick. With less material used in construction, these panels are more economical in cost.

3rd Generation Solar Panels

3rd generation solar panels are still in the research and development phase of production. These panels are ideally composed of a variety of material; including silicon wires, nanotubes, conductive plastics and organic dyes. Expected to be commercially viable with high energy output, the 3rd generation solar panels will be low on cost.

Types of Solar Panels

Fun Fact-  Did you know that the energy required for the world can be sufficed by the harvesting the power generated by the sun for just some minutes? Amazing, right?

Solar energy is a long-lasting and reliable energy source which is also efficient and cost-effective. We are reputed solar panel installers, and we have expertise in installing all types of solar panels. Each panel type caters to different needs. If you want to know your best pick, contact our team today.

Monocrystalline Solar Panels Or Mono-SI

If you have noticed the solar panels with rounded edges and a uniform dark look, this is the type. These solar panels are high on efficiency because of the high purity thin wafers of silicon. We call them monocrystalline because the production involves slicing of large single crystals into constituent cells. These panels are useful even when the space is limited, and they yield a high power output. Aesthetically pleasing, Monocrystalline panels are less impacted by high temperatures.

Polycrystalline Solar Panels (Poly-Si)

These are the square-shaped panels, with a speckled blue look. Polycrystalline solar panels are made from melted raw silicon and are cost-effective with substantial power output. Ideal for small rooftops, these first-generation panels are suitable for an energy consumption range of 100-1000 Watts. The choice of the panel type depends upon a specific situation. You can consult our experts to know more.

TFSC (Thin-Film Solar Cells)

If you are looking for solar panels in the budget, you might want to consider TFSC. These panels include one or more film layers of photovoltaic material, including cadmium, silicon or copper, onto the substrate. They are economical alternatives and are flexible too. If you have a generous amount of space available for the solar panel installation, here is a good option for you.

These panels are available in various types, depending upon the type of photovoltaic material deposited onto the substrate. The commercially available options include Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIS/CIGS), Amorphous Silicon (a-Si), Cadmium Telluride (CdTe).

Reasons To Install Solar Panels

If you are looking to upgrade the efficiency of your home, solar panels are the way to do it. You might be knowing the potential benefits of going solar, and considering the pros of the technology, there is no good reason to not adapt to it.

Reduce Your Energy Bills

Whether you own a business or you are a homeowner, a sizeable portion of your income goes into the energy bills. With a solar panel system, you will be able to produce a substantial amount of energy for more than a couple of decades. Now that is a lot of money you saved right there.

Protect The Environment

Solar panels will help you to do your bit for saving the environment. Reduce your carbon footprint considerable by going solar. A typical solar panel eliminates 3-4 tons of carbon emission in a year.

Protection From The Rising Energy Costs

You will be able to hedge utility prices. With the electricity prices going up each year, investing in solar panels helps you stabilise the electricity cost, and you can be in a better position to forecast and manage your expenses.

Increase Your Property Value

Solar homes fetch more value and sell more quickly than the non-solar ones. As homebuyers become more educated about the benefits of the system, the demand keeps on growing.

"After a few years of putting up with the early morning bird tap dancing on the roof , constant cleaning of the side path due to bird toilet habits and a few times scrambling on the roof myself to try solutions for the problem I took the plunge and looked for a pro company to solve the problem. I will be honest and didnt know anything about this company prior to the work and choosing them was just a search in local area. But i was not dissapointed , guys were polite , professional and tidy . The job looks great , birds have nearly all gone and as far as price goes (I have nothing to compare against so wont go into detail) I am more than happy for what I paid for the service I got . Wouldnt hesitate to recommend"

"This style of pigeon proofing is FAR superior to the standard wire proofing methods I've seen elsewhere, it actually blends into the panels and looks like it's part of the system! Very discreet. The workmen were polite, friendly and knew their stuff. They arrived on time and completed the job within the timescales given. We are really delighted with the job they did and we've already had very positive comments from friends and neighbours. I'd have no hesitation at all in recommending this company. Thanks guys!"

"A couple of lovely guys did a good job getting rid of the pigeons from under my solar panels and made sure that they don’t come back! They also cleared the gutters afterwards. Would recommend."
