What to Consider When Buying Solar Panels for Your Home

When shopping for solar panels, it’s critical that you consider size, type, efficiency, wattage, cost, and warranty. We simplify the process by breaking down what you need to know and look for.

Solar Panel Size

Solar panels are available in various sizes.

The 108-cell panel, measuring approximately 68” x 45” and weighing around 45 lbs. is a popular choice predominantly for residential installations in sunnier locations across the US.

The 132-cell panel is bigger in size, measuring around 74” x 41” and weighing 48.5 pounds. Since it produces more energy, it is a good choice for maximizing energy production if you have limited rooftop space.

As both sizes work well for home solar systems, the choice depends on your available space. We recommend the larger size if you're installing a ground-mount system or if your roof can accommodate larger panels.

Solar Panel Types

Monocrystalline vs. Polycrystalline

There are two types of solar panels: monocrystalline (mono) and polycrystalline (poly) silicon. At GoGreenSolar, we offer mono solar panels exclusively, as they’re known for their higher efficiency and better performance in low-light conditions.

Half-cut Solar Cells

Half-cut solar cells are a recent breakthrough in solar technology. As electricity flows through wires and cells, some energy is dissipated. To mitigate this loss, a laser cutter splits traditional solar cells in half, enhancing overall performance. Half-cut solar cells effectively minimize resistive loss and improve efficiency, especially in shaded conditions.

Our half-cut ZNshine 108-cell panel is a customer favorite.

Solar Panel Efficiency

High-efficiency panels optimally convert sunlight into electricity, delivering a more effective and sustainable solar solution for your home. On average, solar panel efficiency ranges between 15% and 20%. At GoGreenSolar, our panels achieve efficiency levels in the higher range, between 18% and 20%, making them ideal for those with limited space or anyone wanting to achieve their energy goals with fewer panels.

Solar Panel Wattage

Solar panel wattage indicates how much power a panel can produce over a certain time. Solar panel output varies widely, ranging from 250 to over 420 watts, with an average cost of 61 to 85 cents per watt.

At GoGreenSolar, we offer high-performance solar panels between 335 and 405 watts, ensuring you get enough to power your household needs.

Cost

Solar system prices vary, depending on the type of solar panels, manufacturer, cell size and wattage output. Our solar panels cost between $300 to $400 per panel, which is a competitive price considering the brands’ top-tier quality and high standards. Some solar panels can run as high as $600.

The total number of solar panels you need will depend on your home’s size and energy needs. Remember, solar panel prices do not include the cost of inverters, racking, and other necessary parts for a complete system installation. 

That’s why it’s financially wiser to get a complete solar kit.

At GoGreenSolar, we’ll work with you to create a solar system that includes the best solar panels for your budget and energy needs. Your kit’s price will also include full tech support from our team as well as other services.

Warranty

Solar is a significant investment, so it’s crucial to understand how solar panel warranties work.

Product Warranty

A product warranty covers physical defects or faulty manufacturing. All of our solar panel brands offer a 10- to 12-year product warranty.

Performance Warranty

A performance warranty guarantees that your solar panel will continue to produce close to its intended output throughout the warranty period. All of our solar panel brands offer a 25-year performance warranty.

While panels, regardless of brand or wattage, naturally decrease output over time, the typical loss is limited to 10 to 20% over 25 years.

Power Output Degradation

The example on the right shows a solar panel with a 90% power output warranty for 12 years and an 80% power output warranty for 25 years.

Should your panels degrade faster than anticipated, we’ll help you work with the manufacturer to get repairs or a replacement under warranty.

What else do you need besides solar panels?

Solar installation demands more than just panels; it requires additional equipment for a successful setup. Our solar kits include the necessary core components to kickstart your solar panel system.

Solar Panels

Solar panels harness the sunlight to generate electricity. 

*Solar panels are not sold separately.

Inverters

Grid tie inverters convert DC to AC power – which is the type of electricity used in homes. They also provide net metering capability.

Batteries (optional but recommended)

Batteries can store excess energy when rates are low and use it during peak hours, optimizing cost savings. Moreover,  during power outages, they act as a backup power source, ensuring uninterrupted electricity for critical needs.

Racking

Also known as mounting, it is a critical component that provides a sturdy and secure support structure for the solar panels.

Monitoring System

Track and analyze your solar energy production in real-time.
