We’ve scoured the world to find the best, most cutting-edge solar panels available.
Solar panels are the heart of any solar energy system. Using high-tech solar cells constructed from a semiconducting material (usually silicon) and mounted on an appropriate roof, they convert the light from the sun into electricity to power a home or business.
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 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.
At ZEN Energy, we choose to only use LONGi monocrystalline solar panels, as these have been shown to have the best efficiency and durability for the end user while still retaining great value.
LONGi has led the solar PV industry to new heights with product innovations and optimised power-cost ratio with breakthrough monocrystalline technologies. LONGi supplies more than 30GW of high-efficiency solar wafers and modules worldwide annually, which is roughly a quarter of global market demand.
LONGi is recognised as the world’s most valuable solar technology company, with the highest market value. Innovation and sustainable development are two of LONGi’s core values.
Key highlights include:
We’re proud to partner with LONGi not just for their fantastic products, but also for their core values of innovation and sustainable development: they are easily one of if not the best solar panel producers on the market.
The overall costs of solar panels will vary depending on a variety of factors, including:

They are effective during the winter months; however you will notice a considerable drop on the overall solar generated compared to the summer months. This is normal due to the height of the sun in the sky and there being less sunlight hours over the winter months.
Solar photovoltaic panels require little maintenance. Your panels can build up dust and other material over time. Solar panel cleaning is not that different from cleaning your windshield. This can be done with water and a soft brush.
Solar panels that face north get the maximum amount of sunlight during daylight hours to generate electricity. Placing panels on the east or west-facing roof will still produce a substantial amount of power. It is not recommended that you install panels with a southerly aspect.
"It’s been great. We have noticed savings from the very start, the wine was nice I won’t lie. Our bills are 40-50% less."
"I was skeptical about the savings at first, we are now saving over 50% on our power bills, summer ones have dropped from $450 to $200 and winter has gone from $660 down to $320. We are happy with how persistent Jake was, the results are great"
“Pretty good I am a country bumkin so pretty good is pretty good, our winter bills have dropped from $400 – $260 & summer from $130 down to $60. I have been recommending ZEN to anyone who asks”
