Quality Solar Panels
With hundreds of different solar panels on the market it is difficult for those not in the industry to identify quality panels which will perform over the expected 25year life of a solar photovoltaic (PV) system. Here we highlight the best quality solar panel manufacturers using the latest solar cell innovations to develop the most efficient and reliable panels with the longest life and highest performance.
What is a Tier 1 Solar Panel?
A common term that sales companies and manufacturers use is the 'Tier 1' rating. The Tier rating was developed by Bloomberg New Energy Finance Corporation and is basically used to rate solar panel manufacturers in terms of financial stability. Unfortunately a Tier 1 ranking does not mean a panel offers the highest performance or quality. With most established panel manufacturers now rated as Tier 1, it is more important than ever to know how to distinguish a high quality and reliable panel by other means which we explain in more detail

Latest Solar Cell Technology
Here we highlight many of the latest solar panel and PV cell technologies offered by the leading manufacturers, plus we list some of the more popular panels available on the market using these innovative features.
Panels using the latest innovations
Most panel manufacturers offer a range of models including mono and poly (aka multi) varieties with various power ratings and warranty conditions. Solar panel efficiency has increased substantially over the last few years due to many advances in PV cell technology including:
- PERC - Passivated Emitter Rear Cell
- Bifacial - Dual sided panels and cells
- Multi Busbar - Multi ribbon and wire busbars
- Split panels - using half cut cells
- Dual Glass - Frameless double glass
- Shingled Cells - Overlapping cells
- IBC - Interdigitated Back Contact cells
- HJT - Heterojunction cells
