Many Americans are concerned with the recent tariffs instituted in January 2018 by the current administration that increased the price of some items imported from China by around 30%. How does this affect you, the consumer?
Luckily, we have many great companies in the United States that we can support! We can help you decide which panel is best for your solar panel installation in San Francisco. At Semper Solaris, we want to install only the best panels available to you. Here is some basic information on solar panels and on some of the top manufacturers in the U.S.
What is a solar panel made of?
Solar panels can be monocrystalline or polycrystalline. What this means is that the silicone is a single crystal or it has many silicon crystals melted together to form the cell. A panel made of a single crystal is always going to cost more, but it will be more efficient, and it will look black. Polycrystalline panels look speckled, and are not as efficient, but are still a great option.
