Solar Panels - Collectors of Solar Energy

A number of solar cells electrically connected to each other and mounted in a support structure or frame is called a photovoltaic or solar panel. Solar panels can be used alone or as a component of a larger solar system. They generate and supply electricity according to their efficiency and the amount of sunlight that reaches them. Any number of solar panels can be connected based on available space, to provide as much electricity output as required.

Considerations Before Going Solar

A few aspects have to be considered before installing a solar panel system. We have to choose among diverse solar cells with different efficiency rates and prices. For the installation of solar panels it is important to select a panel kit that is adequate for the purpose intended, i.e. for roofs or vehicles.


What Kind of Solar Panel Do You Need?

For certain applications it is important to use thin and flexible solar panels. If a roof can´t carry a heavy load a thin film solar panel might be the right choice. For smaller applications where only a small amount of electricity is required or not enough space available, small solar panels can be adequate.

Rick, Longmont, CO
"I had never used a Online Contractor website before. I decided to give this one a chance and I'm glad I did. The company that this site recommended to me was very professional and kept me from spending $ 500+ on panels. Great site, I would use it again."
