When you think of solar panel efficiency, you’re most likely thinking about how much sunlight a given panel turns into electricity. While this is certainly an important consideration for customers choosing a new photovoltaic system, it’s far from the only aspect of “efficiency” that goes into a high-performing PV system.
In this blog, we’ll look at a few different variables that go into making an efficient solar installation. We’ll start with how well different panels and panel types turn sunlight into electricity, but also looks at other factors, like planning, installation, and maintenance.
But let’s get started where the rubber hits the road: the panels themselves.
