A solar panel (or photovoltaic panel) is a packaged, connected assembly of photovoltaic cells. The solar panel can be used as a component of a larger photovoltaic system to generate and supply electricity in commercial and residential applications.
Solar panels use light energy (photons) from the sun to generate electricity through the photovoltaic effect. The structural (load carrying) member of a module can either be the top layer or the back layer. The majority of modules use wafer-based crystalline silicon cells or thin-film cells based on cadmium telluride or silicon. The conducting wires that take the current off the panels may contain silver, copper or other non-magnetic conductive transition metals.
The cells must be connected electrically to one another and to the rest of the system. Cells must also be protected from mechanical damage and moisture. Most solar panels are rigid, but semi-flexible ones are available, based on thin-film cells.
Types of solar panels we offer:
LG is a leader in renewable solar energy with high efficient panels generating electric power via photovoltaic systems. There are specific features of LG modules such as:
Many of our panels in Australia are used on grid as part of residential solar systems, but we are now seeing increased use of renewable power for commercial solar energy power systems.
High Performance, Excellent Durability
SunPower® E-Series solar panels deliver efficient performance, long-lasting durability at a great value. SunPower solar panels generate more energy over the lifetime of your system than other panels. Compared to other technologies, SunPower converts the greatest percentage of sunlight into electricity. This means that over the lifetime of your system, you’ll generate more electricity and save more money on your electricity bills.
Not only are SunPower solar panels the most powerful and efficient on the market, they’re also the best-looking. Thanks to our exclusive SunPower® Maxeon™ solar cell technology, SunPower panels have no grid lines and blend harmoniously into the roof of your home. Backed by the industry’s best warranty, our residential solar panels combine brains, brawn and beauty to provide the most efficient, renewable solar power.
