How Efficient Are Commercial Solar Panels?
May. 17, 2021
Solar panel efficiency measures how well a solar panel is able to convert sunlight into electricity and is an important metric to be aware of as you consider your options for commercial solar panels. Higher efficiency solar panels produce more electricity than lower efficiency solar panels, given the same amount of sunlight and time. Over the lifetime of your solar PV system, this output performance can really make a difference in how much energy your system generates for your business.
How to Measure the Efficiency of Commercial Solar Panels
Efficiency levels vary among commercial solar panels, however, most fall in the 15-20% efficiency range, with some hitting the 25% efficiency mark. Solar panels have come a long way since their start where they were averaging 1% efficiency. By using industry-leading solar panels, Boston Solar customers can generate 70% more energy over 25 years than lower efficiency solar panels that are out on the market. While solar panels will lose some of their efficiency performance over their lifespan, LG commercial solar panels are guaranteed to produce at 90.08% of their initial performance after 25 years.
