Energy efficiency is one of the top reasons Georgia homeowners choose solar panels to supplement their energy supply. Since you’re creating your own energy with solar, it can potentially lead to savings on monthly electric bills. If you’re searching for an in-depth answer to how solar panels can aid in energy efficiency, you’ve come to the right place. 

Solar Panels Can Make A Difference

How your solar panels are made can determine their efficiency. Most solar panels on the market today are made of monocrystalline silicon, polycrystalline silicon or thin film. Each panel has varying consistencies and efficiency rates. POWERHOME SOLAR installs American-made monocrystalline panels for our residential customers. 

Monocrystalline silicon panels make the most out of their silicon material, as the thin silicon wafers have a high purity rating, meaning they are excellent at generating electricity. Along with this high efficiency, the thin, sleek design of the silicon wafers allows the panels to take up less space, which is why we prefer this type for our customers. In terms of value and overall efficiency, monocrystalline silicon panels are the best of both worlds.
