What Are the Best Solar Panel Options? How to Choose

Choosing to invest in solar panels for your business is a huge step towards lower energy costs, better energy efficiency, and a more sustainable world. Still, preparing to purchase your first set of solar panels from all the options can be challenging in itself!

There are so many companies out there claiming to have the best products at the best prices, so how can you be sure you’re getting the best solar energy system? With so many solar panel options available, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed when choosing what’s right for your business facility.

If you’re still on the hunt for the perfect solar panels, you’ve come to the right place. Here, we’re sharing how to choose the right solar panels so that you can continue making the world a more environmentally conscious place!

Types of Solar Panels

The type of solar panel you choose will affect the overall cost, appearance, efficiency, and coverage of your system. The two main types of panels are monocrystalline and polycrystalline.

Monocrystalline panels are the more efficient option, however, this does mean that they’re more expensive. With this type, you can get by with fewer panels which means your system won’t have to take up as much space.

Polycrystalline panels are less costly, but they’re also less efficient than monocrystalline panels. You’ll have to purchase a few more panels to generate the same amount of electricity.

Sizing

Solar panel sizes are either 60-cell or 72-cell, which refer to the number of cells on the solar panel. For reference, 72-cell panels are about a foot longer than 60-cell panels.

72-cell panels are perfect for large commercial roofs that have plenty of space. They also generate more electricity than 60-cell panels, making them the more efficient option. However, if you’re building or property is short on space, it may make more sense to install 60-cell panels.

Quality of Manufacturer and Products

Before choosing a solar panel option and having it installed, it’s important that you research the quality of the manufacturer so that you can gauge the quality of the products.

Only give your business to top-rated, reputable manufacturers so that you are ensuring the quality and longevity of your new solar panels. To find out if a company is great, check if the manufacturers have made any guarantees or offered any warranty to their products. Research customer ratings and reviews to get a better idea of the manufacturer’s reputation.

Know the Best Solar Panel Options for You

With so many solar panel options out there, it can be tricky trying to navigate the sea of manufacturers to find what’s right for you. Now that you’re aware of what to consider when choosing solar panels, you can rest assured that you’re getting the perfect solar panels that will enhance your business facility.

  • 5 star review  Great advice and service and I don't regret selecting them. They are not a pushy solar marketing outfit. I have recommended them to friends who are looking for solar. They were very patient and helpful while I watched shading issues during different times of the day in the weeks before I made a decision. My observations just confirmed what they had proposed. I was very happy with the installation process. What they said I could expect to be generated on my site and position is on target with what is actually happening.

  • 5 star review  Competitive pricing. Installation crew on time, polite, efficient and answered all my questions. Really appreciated the call a half hour before arrival letting me know they were on their way. Recommended Enphase micro-inverter system is great. Monitoring software is fantastic. Could not have asked for a better experience.

    5 star review  Fantastic friendly service, very professional installers. Pricing was really good and they explained everything in simple terms that I could understand. I would have no hesitation recommending them. Even though they were from the central coast they were happy to come to Sydney and were always on time. It’s awesome dealing with companies like this. Thanks all green

  • 5 star review  I don't normally write reviews but decided to do it for All Green as I had a great experience and smooth transaction with them. Joe on the sales end was really great with understanding the needs and providing analysis for couple of different scenarios. He didn't try to push me to sell the biggest system and provided the optimum one that'd suite my need. It took a while to get it installed, but Wayne and the crew was great on the day. They had all the equipment and didn't even have to come inside the house. They did all the work from outside which was great as I was working from home that day. The job was neat and I didn't have to a tidy up after they've left. Emma and Kylie in the office were great to deal with as well. The system is working like a charm and automatically shut down safely when there was planned maintenance in the electricity network. Thanks guys, couldn't have been a smoother transaction. I'll be recommending you to everyone who's considering solar

    5 star review  May I thank the installer Dave who came around today to troubleshoot and fix my network connectivity with the Enphase envoy. He went to great trouble to hook it up via ethernet so it’s much more reliable and I’m thrilled about that. This is the sort of excellent post-install service you want but don't always get. Recommend.

    5 star review  A highly professional experience from start to finish. The sales team provided all the information we needed in an easy to understand format with very competitive pricing. Once we decided to go ahead with the purchase things moved along quickly and within a short time the installation crew arrived. The crew were very helpful and friendly, explaining all the steps and downtime was kept to a very minimum amount of time. No more than 15 minutes or so. The monitoring software was installed and explained in detail and the empty boxes, etc was cleaned away. A reassuring aspect of the monitoring software is that in the event of a problem All Green will contact me to let me know what will be done and when, not the other way around as is usually the case. Top marks on all aspects of the deal from start to finish. Well done. I would recommend All Green in an instant.

  • 5 star review  All green environmental solutions installed a large solar system and Tesla battery at my elderly neighbours house (who I was assisting) on the 20th of August, 2020. The installation team came early in the morning, and after consulting with us about what they were going to do, they got to work. The whole process took less than a day, and the men were very efficient and courteous. At the end of the day, the system was tested and up and running, and they left the worksite tidy. Would highly recommend the company if you are thinking of putting in a system. Cheers, Phillip and Dennis. 😊😸

  • 5 star review  All Green Environmental Solutions recently installed a large Solar system in my commercial premises. Scott is certainly an expert in his field and gave me the right advice from the outset. Also, Scott and his team were punctual, innovative, keen and professional at all times. I will definitely be using them again. Kind regards, Michael Bryer.

    5 star review  Fantastic team to deal with. Within an hour of the install (which only took half a day) we were making more energy then we were using, and that was on a cloudy day! Highly recommend.

  • 5 star review  Excellent experience with All Green getting our solar panels fitted. Joel and the boys arrived on time and had the job finished in about 4 hours. The solar panels have been producing heaps of power since installation and we have not used any electricity in that time.
