One option for homeowners interested in using renewable energy are photovoltaic solar panels. The photovoltaic process uses silicon cells to convert light from photons to voltages of electricity to produce a sustainable, environmentally friendly energy source. Most solar panels can be mounted in a number of ways including fixed, adjustable and tracking. The fixed mount option is the simplest, but the solar panels cannot be adjusted to capture more sunlight. In contrast, the adjustable mount option does allow for adjusting of the solar panels according to seasonal changes in the sun. Tracking solar panels follow the arc of the sun to provide maximum efficiency.
Solar Panel Costs Prices are impacted by a number of factors including the type of solar panels. Monocrystalline solar panels are made of a continuous silicon sheet, and they are the most expensive, but also the most energy efficient. Polycrystalline solar panels are made of individual photovoltaic cells held together with metal conductors which make them less expensive but also less efficient. Amorphous panels are an even less expensive and less efficient option made of a thin layer of silicon over a metal or glass base. The types of mounts vary in price as well with the fixed mount being the least expensive followed by adjustable mount and tracking mount which is the most expensive.
