I will highlight SunPower's products and then also some other Solar Panels to think about. Also, keep in mind that you may also be thinking of Solar Roof Shingles | Solar Roof Tiles.

When looking at the difference in Solar Panels for Home Use, it is important to review a couple of key criteria. The first is initial cost. The second is the Watts / Panel and the third is the panel efficiency. You can expert that you Watts / Panel be roughly 165 - 230 and your Efficiency be around 12% - 18%. The lower your rating, the slower you will recoup your money. You truly get what you pay for.

  • The Sunpower 225 and the Sunpower 230 are the highest rated residential panels from SunPower while the Sunpower 210 and the Sunpower 215 are most cost effective.
