How to Buy the Right Solar Panels for Your Home in South Australia

Solar power is an alternative energy solution that can help reduce your current energy footprint and is a vital part of any energy-efficient new build in South Australia. However, with a vast array of brands available, deciding on the right solar panels for your home is challenging!

Luckily, Solar Power Direct is here to help guide you in the right direction when selecting solar panels. In this article, South Australia's solar power installation specialists explain the top two considerations that affect the number and kind of solar panels you need for your home. This is the same methodology we use to expedite solar panel installation for projects small and large throughout South Australia.

Number One: Understanding Your Solar Potential

Understanding your solar potential is the first step in deciding what solar panels are right for you. Your solar potential describes how much solar energy your property can produce and tells you how many solar panels your property requires. The average home installs a 6 - 8kw solar system, which generates approximately 25-34kw of power per day. Based on the size of the area and the number of panels installed, this can be increased or decreased to meet your requirements. A professional can help you determine what system would best suit your energy needs.

Number Two: Finding the Best Solar Panel Brand

There are many brands of solar panels to choose from, but different types of solar panels offer different energy-saving capabilities. The same solar panels that power a giant shopping mall might not work for your small family home.

The most common types of photovoltaic panels (solar panels) are Polycrystalline or Monocrystalline framed panels. Your home might be perfect for Hanwha Q-Cells, JinKO, and Risen photovoltaic (PV) panels. Each brand offers unique energy-saving capabilities, but all are great at reducing the energy costs of your existing home.
