Solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity generation is free electrical power and all solar panels are generally guaranteed to generate for at least 25 years , but many are still operating at 40 years old. Our wide range of solar panels of small to larger sizes (10W to 150W) suit a wide variety of applications, domestic, commercial, off grid, camping, great for farmers, and mobile purposes like caravans, motorhomes, boats, mobile food vendors, trickle chargers and many more.

Why Go Solar?

Beat energy inflation, energy security, remote location power sources (save a fortune on armored cabling), mobile power sources, fast payback periods over conventional fuel sources such as diesel generation and hook-ups, keep batteries fully charged at all time as deep discharge shortens life, environmentally friendly power which reduces carbon emissions to slow global warming and climate change

Reduce your reliance on fossil fuels with this great plug and play free energy source for long term cost savings.

We can supply Solar panel alone or as part of a kit. Kits can include Controller and cables or fixing brackets can be included as well.

Monocrystalline Advantages over Cheaper Polycrystalline solar panels

Solar Panels

Monocrystalline
purest silicone 16-20% efficiency
performs better in lower light levels i.e. in overcast skies
longest life with lowest rate of performance loss of only 0.36% per year, therefore a 100w panel would be around 91w after 25 years
better heat tolerance, i.e. performs better on hot summer days

Polycrystalline
lower grade silicone 13-16% efficiency
cheaper production costs
performance loss 0.64% per year, therefore a 100w panel would be around 84w after 25 years
slightly lower heat tolerance than mono crystalline solar panels, i.e. excessive heating of the panel causes a reduction in power generation.

Independent Off-Grid Solar Power Source

One or more solar panels can be connected a battery bank and power inverter using a solar charge controller. You can therefore have a 240v power supply anywhere in the world without grid supply. Please see our solar power kits.

Solar Panels do still generate power during cloudy and rainy weather

A rough to guide solar panel power output relative to weather conditions:-
100% power output – clear sky midday sun with the panel fully tilted toward the sun’s position in the sky.
75-85% output – clear sky midday sun but with the panel laid flat
50% output – thin cloud, or intermittent small clouds
10-20% output – midday overcast sky or rainy conditions

In the event that the solar panel is in shade for a prolonged period, our solar panels either have one or two built-in bypass diodes which will enable the panel to continue generating.
