A key component of any solar energy system, cutting-edge solar panels utilize advanced technology to convert the sun's light into electricity, powering homes and businesses alike. Constructed from semiconducting materials such as silicon and strategically placed on rooftops, they are the heart of any solar energy system.

There are dozens of different manufacturers of solar panels across the globe, all with slightly different processes and materials. Generally, however, solar panels fall into three distinct categories:

  • Monocrystalline
  • Polycrystalline
  • Thin-film

Monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar panels have cells made from silicon wafers, assembled into rows and columns to form a rectangular panel, which is then covered in protective glass. Thin-film solar panels are typically made instead from more flexible materials.

With so many different options for solar panels on the market, choosing the right panels to add to your system can be daunting. That’s why we’ve done the work for you.

Solar panels are devices that convert sunlight into electricity. They are made up of photovoltaic cells that generate electricity when exposed to sunlight. The cells are made of semiconductor materials, usually silicon, which absorb photons of light and release electrons, creating an electric current. This current is then captured and converted into usable electrical power. The electricity generated by solar panels can be used to power homes, businesses, and even entire communities.

Using solar panels to power your home or business can provide a variety of benefits. Some of these benefits include:

  1. Reduced energy bills: By using solar energy to power your property, you can significantly reduce your reliance on traditional energy sources and in turn, lower your energy bills.
  2. Environmental benefits: Solar energy is a clean and renewable energy source that produces no greenhouse gas emissions, reducing your carbon footprint and helping to combat climate change.
  3. Increased property value: Installing solar panels can increase the value of your property and make it more attractive to potential buyers.
  4. Energy independence: By generating your own electricity, you are less reliant on the grid and the fluctuations in energy prices that can occur.
  5. Long-term savings: Solar panels are a long-term investment that can save you money over the lifetime of the system, as the cost of traditional energy sources continues to rise.

Solar panels are designed to be durable and long-lasting. Most manufacturers offer warranties ranging from 20 to 25 years for their products, and many panels have a lifespan of up to 30 years or more. Solar panels require very little maintenance, with occasional cleaning to remove dust and debris being the most common task. It is recommended to have your solar panel system inspected and maintained by a professional installer every 2-3 years to ensure optimal performance and efficiency.

The cost of installing solar panels can vary depending on a variety of factors such as the size of the system, type of solar panels, and location of the installation. However, the cost has decreased significantly over the years, and the payback period for solar panel installation is typically between 5-10 years, depending on the energy usage and location. It's also important to consider any available government incentives and rebates that may be applicable to help offset the initial cost.

Most solar panels come with a warranty that covers manufacturing defects, typically ranging from 10 to 25 years. The warranty for the solar panels should be considered along with the warranty for the entire solar energy system, which can range from 10 to 25 years. It is important to check the warranty of the solar panels and the system to ensure that they meet your needs and to ensure that any potential issues are covered. Additionally, it is important to choose a reputable manufacturer and installer, like ZEN Energy, to ensure the quality of the panels and the installation.

There are several types of solar panels available for installation, including mono-crystalline, polycrystalline, thin-film, and bifacial solar panels.

Mono-crystalline solar panels are made from a single, high-grade silicon crystal, which makes them more efficient and more expensive than other types of solar panels.

Polycrystalline solar panels are made from multiple small silicon crystals, which make them less efficient but also less expensive than mono-crystalline panels.

Thin-film solar panels are made by depositing thin layers of photovoltaic material onto a substrate. They are less efficient than crystalline silicon panels but are more flexible and can be installed in more locations.

Bifacial solar panels have a glass panel on both the front and back sides, allowing them to capture sunlight from both sides of the panel, increasing their overall efficiency.

Yes, solar panels can be installed on a roof that is not facing south. While a south-facing roof is ideal, solar panels can also be installed on east-facing or west-facing roofs. However, the amount of energy that the panels can generate will depend on the orientation and pitch of the roof, as well as the amount of shading and the geographic location of the building. An experienced solar panel installer can assess the situation and recommend the best solution for your specific situation.

The installation process for solar panels typically involves several steps, including a consultation and assessment, design and permitting, installation, and final inspection. The time it takes to complete the process can vary depending on the size and complexity of the installation, but a typical residential installation can be completed in a few days. A commercial installation may take longer.

During the consultation and assessment phase, the solar installer, like ZEN Energy, will evaluate your property and determine the best solar panel system for your needs. They will also provide you with an estimate of the installation cost and expected performance.

Once you have agreed to move forward with the installation, the installer will obtain any necessary permits and begin the installation process. This involves mounting the panels on your roof or on a ground-mounted structure, wiring the panels and connecting them to an inverter and battery storage, if applicable.

Once the installation is complete, the system will undergo a final inspection to ensure it meets all local building and safety codes. The installer will also walk you through the operation of the system and answer any questions you may have.

Yes, it's often possible to add more solar panels to an existing system. This is called a solar panel expansion, and it can be a cost-effective way to increase your energy production if your energy needs have grown. Your solar installer can help you determine if your current system can accommodate additional panels and can advise you on the best way to expand your system. Keep in mind that adding more panels may require upgrades to your inverter or other equipment, which could increase the overall cost of the expansion.
