Not sure which solar panels are best for your home or business? Let’s take a look at some of the high-quality brands offered in south Texas. Keep in mind efficiency and performance are factors you WANT to become aware of with any solar panel. 

Solar panels technology is harnessed through photovoltaics, also called PV, which is a process of converting light to electricity. When solar manufactures are building solar panels they are implementing semiconductors, which are either crystalline silicon or thin-film material. 

According to the website, “Silicon cells are more efficient at converting sunlight to electricity but generally have higher manufacturing costs. Thin-film materials typically have lower efficiencies, but can be simpler and less costly to manufacture.”

Reflecting on efficiency and which solar panels are best for your seasonal temperatures is smart and can ease your selection process. 

A good example of panel efficiency is through the Panasonic photovoltaic module HIT N330/N325. One of Panasonic’s competitive advantages is that as the south Texas temperatures increase, the PV module continues to perform at high levels due to temperature coefficient.

Another good example is through the solar panel brand AXITEC, a high quality German solar panel brand. The manufacturer’s power output is through using mono-crystalline high-efficiency cells. Mono-crystalline solar panels and polycrystalline solar panels are both made from silicon cells. 

A local solar installation company can carry more than one performance nominal output solar panel from the same manufacturer. 

When determining which solar panels are best, efficiency and performance are not to be overlooked, instead examined through data sheets that are provided to you through your solar installation company. 

Find out which solar panels are best and get installed by a certified solar installer. If you aren’t sure about what solar panel brand to choose, ask your solar sales representative to provide you with more than one quote and to include different brands.
