Solar panel options

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) uses energy from the sun to create electricity to run appliances and lighting. PV requires only daylight, not direct sunlight, to generate electricity.

Solar panel options

Post by James » 30 Apr 2011, 21:49

Origin have a promotion on at the moment and I'm looking at installing a system but confused with the offerings.

The basic model (1.5KWatt) has higher efficient panels (monocrystal=14.24%) but the inverter cannot be upgraded.

The 1.6 and 2.0 KWatt models have upgradable inverters but less efficient panels (polycrystal=12.84%)

The upgradable can have another unit plugged into it to double its capacity - second unit only cuts in when needed.

What is the best thing to do?

Dont forget mono and poly solar panels are different in size for a particular wattage. The poly are usually smaller than the mono so you can install more poly solar panels than mono solar panels. I would prefer the the upgradeable inverter solution.

Check out Anglian Homes for some good solar information.
