In the past few decades, solar energy has come a very long way. It has gone from being entirely impractical to a viable source of renewable energy that is being used on a wider and wider scale every day. One of the earliest types of solar panels developed was the monocrystalline panel, which is still being used to this day. Over the years, it has been researched and improved. Today, it is one of the most efficient types of solar panels out there. But that’s not its only selling point. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits that monocrystalline solar panels can provide to their users.

Efficient in Warm Weather

Warm temperatures, and particularly high ambient temperatures, can have a negative impact on solar panels and their efficiency. When the temperatures rise, the electricity production of the panel falls. This is true for every type of solar panel. However, the decline in efficiency is much less serious with monocrystalline solar panels than it is with other types of panels. The silicone used to make these panels is largely to thank for this benefit. The silicone in monocrystalline panels is a lot purer than in other panels, which allows it to handle more heat than less pure panels.

Utilize Space Efficiently

In addition to being energy efficient, monocrystalline PV modules are also space efficient. These panels have a high power output, a thin design, and high efficiency levels. Because of these three factors working in unison, a person would need fewer of these panels than they would of other types of panels to produce a similar energy output. Monocrystalline solar panels are also great for those who have a limited amount of space in which to place solar panels. This includes people with smaller homes and those with RVs, campers, and vans.

Accelerated Innovation

One of the greatest benefits of these solar panels is that they have been on the market for so long. Since they are already the most efficient type of solar panel, more energy and time is devoted to researching them and improving their energy efficiency. Though researchers are looking for ways to improve all types of solar panels, monocrystalline panels are still given the largest amount of research attention. They have already come such a long way in the past decade -- who knows what the next decade will hold?

Long Life

Monocrystalline solar panels are made of the highest quality silicone, an incredibly inert and stable material. Panels that are made of silicone will naturally last a long time. Most manufacturers offer a 25-year warranty on their solar panels. Monocrystalline panels often last much longer than the manufacturer warranty; according to some estimates, they may last closer to 35 years than 25 years. Though most solar panels have a fairly long lifespan, monocrystalline solar panels tend to have the longest because they are made of the highest quality silicone.

Monocrystalline solar panels stand out from all the others. If you are considering switching to solar power, these panels are your best option. Contact us at The PowerStore, Inc. to learn more about monocrystalline panels and to view our wide selection of products.
