Instapark has a large selection of solar panels for your residential home, commercial office, or industrial warehouse factory applications. Also outdoor, boat, off-grid, and survival solar power kits as well as solar power system parts, mounts and components.
Of the various types of solar panels available today, mono-crystalline are highly efficient. In fact, these solar panels are known to provide the highest level of efficiency. Because of their construction, mono-crystalline solar panels will allow you to save the most on electricity costs, and are also capable of withstanding higher sunlight temperatures better than other types of solar panels.
Basically, solar panels are a method used to convert energy from the sun in to electricity. This electricity is then capable of everything from charging batteries to powering appliances, lights, and entire homes.
What wattage would you need if you were to charge a 12-volt battery that provides power to your RV or electronic equipment? A 15W mono-crystalline solar panel would do the job. For this use, a 12V charger controller is also recommended to prevent overcharging 12-volt batteries.
What is a solar charge controller? It is simply a device that takes the voltage from a panel (which is often not known), and conditions this voltage so that it is safe for charging your batteries. In other words, solar charge controllers allow you to avoid overcharging or discharging your battery.
Another advantage of mono-crystalline solar panels over polycrystalline and amorphous panels is that they can be used in areas where space is limited. Homeowners who live in a residential area or other suburban setting often have little space to install solar panels. A 180W mono-crystalline solar panel is efficient for use with a home, cabin or RV, and to provide power when an outage occurs. This solar panel is only 62 inches in length, which is a manageable size when you have little space to work with.
Mono-crystalline solar panels offer many advantages to consumers. Not only do they lower your electric usage so that you experience lower energy costs, they are also environmental-friendly due to the reduced amount of electricity used to power your home, RV, boat or other electronic equipment.
There are many wattage levels available in solar panels today. From 5 watt to 20, 30, 50, 80, 130 and 180 watt, various models are designed for different uses. For example, a 5 watt mono-crystalline solar panel may be sufficient for powering an electric gate or automatic animal feeder, while a 20 watt solar panel is capable of powering a laptop computer, lights, radios, digital cameras and other small appliances.
Solar panels that are larger in size can are capable of powering microwaves, refrigerators and outdoor lighting. Look for a 40, 80 or 130 watt panel for these types of uses. Also keep in mind that several mono-crystalline solar panels may be combined to power a home in a rural or remote location.
Mono-crystalline solar panels frequently last for 25 years or more, as opposed to 7 to 9 years with other types. There are many advantages to these types of solar panels, whether you want to heat water, heat the air in your home, provide electricity to power small appliances and televisions, an RV, cabin, electronic gate, computer or nearly any other device you could imagine.
Save money on energy costs, preserve the environment and feel confident knowing that you have back-up power in case of a power outage. There are dozens of reasons to choose mono-crystalline solar panels over other varieties.
