Achieve Higher Energy Efficiency Using Modern Photovoltaic Panelsby Jasmin Jew SEO
Solar powered systems use photovoltaic panels in order to convert the sun's energy into usable electricity. The efficiency of the silicon material in the solar cells has been greatly improved due to development. The modern solar panels available on the current market, are far more efficient, durable and powerful than previous models. The solar industry has seen great advances in technology in recent years, which has led to the development of far more efficient solar cells.
These advances have made solar panels cheaper than they were. Panels are now smaller and stronger, so you require less panels and a smaller space to produce the same amount of electricity as you would with one of the older types of panel. Because there is less work involved with installing fewer panels, the installation costs are also reduced.
All photovoltaic panels require an inverter to change the energy from DC to AC and the efficiency of new inverters has also greatly improved. Less energy is lost in the conversion process using the new inverters. This increased efficiency also means less panels.
There are now panels constructed with a micro inverter built into them. These are the most energy efficient models currently available as they can convert the energy at source, eliminating the issues caused by redirecting energy to the inverter along cables for conversion. In this type of system, a percentage of the energy is immediately lost before it even reaches the inverter. People become disappointed with these types of systems which in some cases were losing as much as 20% of the energy the panels could produce. Thanks to new technology, these problems can be easily avoided.
Any new equipment must be durable and built to last. The easiest indicator of the quality of any piece of equipment is its length of guarantee. In the past, lots of the panels would begin to have issues with the deterioration of ther solar cells after about ten years or so which would effect their productivity. Nobody wants to be replacing their panels this quickly due to the cost and trouble involved. A quality new panel should easily last for a period of twenty five years. Generally, when you buy cheaper panels they will need to be replaced much earlier than others so keep this in mind as any initial savings may well be a false economy.
