Solar panels are becoming more affordable and effective than ever. More and more households and businesses are therefore starting to use solar panels for clean and cheap energy generation in order to live more sustainably and save money.
We provide 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.
Although the oldest type of solar panel, monocrystalline solar panels are the most popular in rooftop solar panel installations Adelaide.
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, taking the efficiency rate of monocrystalline solar panels from 17% to 22%.
High Efficiency Rate (17-22%)
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. These solar panels are made of multiple-crystal silicon, meaning 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.
Lower Efficiency Rate (15-17%)

One common upgrade option is to replace older, less efficient panels with newer, higher efficiency models. These newer panels can produce more energy for the same surface area, resulting in higher overall energy production from your system.Another option is to add more panels to your existing system. This can be especially beneficial if you have additional roof space that can accommodate more panels, as it can increase the overall energy production of your system.
There are several reasons why you may need to replace your solar panels, including damage, poor performance, or simply wanting to upgrade to more efficient panels.Damage can be caused by a variety of factors, such as severe weather events, fallen branches, or animals on the roof. Even small cracks or breaks in the panels can significantly reduce their efficiency and output over time, so it's important to have any damage addressed promptly.
Regular servicing of solar panels is essential to maintain their optimal performance and extend their lifespan. Solar panels are designed to withstand the elements and provide power for many years, but without proper maintenance, they can degrade and lose efficiency over time.Solar panel servicing involves a range of tasks, including cleaning the panels, checking for damage or defects, testing the electrical components, and ensuring that the panels are properly aligned to receive maximum sunlight. It is recommended that solar panels are serviced at least once a year to ensure they are working at their best.
