Enjoy safe and reliable solar in Adelaide

We have the solution for your home or business

With solar panels becoming more affordable and effective than ever, more and more households and businesses are starting to employ solar energy solutions in order to live more sustainably and save money.

We employ solar panel types that give you the greatest benefit and work best for your needs. At MDB Solar, we’ll explain our different solar panel types and their advantages and disadvantages, plus we’ll also give you complete information about their cost, efficiency, wattage, and warranty.

Wondering which type of solar panel is best for you? Explore below the differences between our solar panel types, their pros and cons, and efficiency rates to help you decide which one to install.

Monocrystalline Solar Panels

Although the oldest type of solar panel, Monocrystalline solar panels are the most popular in rooftop solar installations.

These panels consist of about 40 monocrystalline solar cells made from pure silicon. Because they are made of single-crystal silicon, electrons flow easier through the cell, making the efficiency rate of monocrystalline solar panels from 17% to 22%.

PROS

High Efficiency Rate (17-22%)

CONS

Higher Cost

Polycrystalline Solar Panels

Polycrystalline panels, also known as multi-crystalline panels, are most famous for homeowners on a budget. They are a newer development of solar panels, that have quickly risen in popularity and efficiency.

The polycrystalline panels are square in shape without any gaps between the cell corners, where each panel contains either 60 or 72 cells. Because they are made of multiple-crystal silicon, electrons flow harder through the cell, making their efficiency rate lower than monocrystalline solar panels. Their efficiency ratings range from 15% to 17%.

Their marbled blue appearance is caused by the multiple crystals that reflect in the sunlight.

PROS

Low Cost

CONS

Lower Efficiency Rate (15-17%)

Superb job by Marco and his team. Highly recommended.

Chris Krystallidis

Marco and the boys at MDB Electrical installed a 10kw system on my house recently and am happy to say I no longer have to pay electricity bills. The workmanship carried out was excellent and cannot recommend them enough. They worked with me to tailor a system to suit my needs and were very easy to work with.

For anyone considering getting a solar system and are unsure who to go through, speak to MDB and you will not be disappointed.

Natalie Maloney

We were one of the first customers of MDB Solar. We have now had our solar panels 8.2 kw for just short of 2 years. Marco was amazing and delivered exactly what he said. Our bills went from 1200 in summer to about 400. The service, install and products have been fantastic. Highly recommend this company!

Emily Parrella

MDB Solar is remarkable. Being able to deal directly with the owner, who not only knows exactly what he is talking about regarding all aspects of his trade and who is unbelievable friendly, reliable and trustworthy…is a refreshing and wonderful experience. I will NEVER use another electrical company again and highly recommend you to do the same. A family run, reliable SA business who works hard and treats all customers with dignity and respect, no matter how small or big the job. Thank you MDB Solar!

Really happy with the system Marco and his installers installed for me. Marco was honest from the beginning and his quote was easily the best value out of the 15 that I got. The installers were very professional, took great care to install everything without leaving a mess and had it finished in less time than they promised. The final product looks amazing. Thank you, Marco!
