The Pros and Cons of Monocrystalline v/s Polycrystalline Solar
These are some of the choices you must make , so read up !
Because of lower silicon purity, polycrystalline solar panels
are not as efficient as monocrystalline solar panels, which give
lower space-efficiencies. With the former you generally need to cover a larger surface, to output the same electrical power as you
would with a solar panel made of monocrystalline silicon.
There are 3 types of technology utilized in the solar panels
available on the market today, these are
1) Thin film amorphous,
Thin film is a totally different technology designed mostly
for removal and replacement without easy damage - as in
camping etc.. It's a much less efficient type of panel and
therefore it uses much more space to accomplish its work.
Thin film has 2 advantages, that it performs better in low
light conditions, as when there is partial shading of the system
or in extreme heat conditions. This not for residential
or commercial power production.
Next, Monocrystalline & Polycrystalline which
are the both types of solar cells that are made from
a form of crystalline silicon. Most quotes you for solar
panels for your home will use crystalline solar panels.
Years ago the only type of solar panel widely used in
residential solar installations in the USA were
monocrystalline solar panels. In the last several years
polycrystalline solar panels, have become the most
commonly used solar panels in residential solar
installations in America due to their lower production cost.
In the industry these 2 are called as simply :
"Mono or Poly" panels.
In our opinion the choice between monocrystalline
and polycrystalline solar panels is something that you
should consider when you are purchasing
solar panels as that weight and efficiency counts.
It's very important also that you choose a good reseller to service
your needs, as that honesty in any industry is important
as well as choosing "A Grade" high quality solar panels
or understanding what lower Grade you are buying, long before the
purchase and what it could mean over the years.
Both monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar cells are
very similar in their performance. What really determines
your power performance over the lifetime of the solar panel
is "a lack of defects in the manufacturing process" ( A Grade ) and so, having a manufacturer that's still in business that will replace the panels, if their performance falls below the warranted levels really counts not to mention their manufacturing track record of success.

Given the right parts and with this basic diagram above, almost anyone can hook up a off grid solar system.
The breaker box is separate from any utility provided power termination point. It is instead a new connection box that the installer will place at a convenient location, that they can wire into or that wires can be run from to plug in receptacles in the building.
The Generator is a Conventionally or Alternatively Fuel Driven Device, that can be automatically activated as needed, for example when power is called for, greater than what is at the box delivery point.
The Inverter changes the solar, wind and battery power into usable house current called A/C and the inverter may also contain a battery charger circuit, just to charge your batteries.
The Batteries required in a system, are of the Off Grid Type called ( Deep Cycle ). At no time should a automobile battery be used, as it will not live long under this type of use and you will be without batteries. AGM Called Absorbed Glass Mat Batteries Require very little maintenance when compared to Lead Acid Type Deep Cycle Batteries, but lead acid batteries last longer when maintained properly and are also designed to be discharged by a total of 30 % at a maximum charge , during each charge cycle. This means you will have to size the power input ( your Solar, Wind, or Fuel Driven Generator ) and the power storage device's ( Battery's, or Super Capacitors etc. ) to operate within this 1/3 or 30% range.
The best battery is a Nickel Iron Ni/Fe battery as they can be drawn down by 50% or more without harm. They are a heavier battery, normally used on shore on a solid floor system, coming in a 1.2 volt size, thus a 12 volt system requires 10 batteries of this size. Amperage can range , we find the 100 , 200 and 300 amp size in 1.2 volts most useful. The best operational systems are 48 volt systems, thus more batteries are needed to hold this amount of voltage at the ready. Ni/Fe batteries can be discharged further down without harming the battery than other battery types and many have been found that lasted 50 years by way of proper maintenance. They also cost more than other common batteries, but the longevity makes up for this greater cost.
The Charge Controller is a device that regulates the power from a given source, so you won't over charge your batteries.
A Power Diverting device is also recommended to be connected to the controller, so any power that comes from a solar array or wind turbine, that is more than the batteries require, can be used profitably in for example, a water heater element keeping your domestic water tank warm. A fail safe device such as a light string can also use up any further over powering, of the battery bank, and is also often used to safe guard the batteries from any possible over charging as a back up diverting device, thus protecting the batteries.
The Solar Array ( P/V panel or Photo Voltaic panels ) is as said above, sized to supply the battery bank's needs, as that the batteries must be energized with new power each day or sometime after a discharge to keep them at the ready. If 50% is drawn down, the energy supply formula your working with, will have to match this.
If the use daily is 20 KW ( that's 20,000 watts of power drawn ) you would need at the least a 40 KW battery bank. Often that is far too expensive of a battery bank to afford and the solar system needed for that size would also be far too expensive to afford when compared to conventional utility power prices. So what is to be done ?
Change the way you use power & Change the building into a energy efficient structure requiring less energy. Some of the items from Electric Power can be changed over to other fuel driven devices to lower your over all power use, to an amount you can afford to power, from solar , wind &/or a generator, if the building is built correctly. Often many people find that a Generator Fueled By Alternative Fuel ( as that when Generator fuel is home made) the cost are vastly less expensive, than a large solar or wind system .
This why we start by building a building that requires less energy, then we calculate based upon what is needed under this situation and thus an energy system can be afforded, that provides power delivery at the levels required, with some Solar, perhaps Some Wind And Some Alternative Fueled Power Generation and so on, powering a building daily.
If you desire to remodel your existing structure start by having Georgia Adobe conduct an energy audit to see what you need totally . You can assist us by collecting your last 12 power bills and we can calculate the daily average power you have used and then begin to look for ways to lessen your power needs through structure changes then we will look at power systems to match what is left to be needed. New appliances may also be required in addition to energy equipment , so that your building can operate within your power supply ability.
In a New Home, all this is planed from the beginning and a consultation is normally the first step. The first phone call is free and for the other cost we take cash or you may use a charge card through PayPal . Interested parties in Georgia Adobe’s™ services, should contact us at 706-363-6453 to receive further instruction about hiring .
