Solar photovoltaic (PV) modules or simply solar panels have not changed much in basic function over the last 30-40 years. Virtually all solar installations still use a series of silicon cells to convert sunlight to DC electricity.
What has changed dramatically is the efficiency of the cells and more so the huge cost reduction to manufacture panels . Therefore, we have competitive prices with high quality brands.
You can choose from any option below to lower your electric bill and save thousands of dollars.
There's never been a better time to invest in solar energy in the Hollywood, FL area. The benefits of home solar panels are countless, but here are just a few:
The average homeowner saves $30,000 in a 20-year span with solar panels. In certain sunny places, that number can double.
Homeowners can offset about 100,000 lbs. of carbon dioxide over 20 years. That's the same as driving 100,000 miles in a car.
The Federal Solar Tax Credit means you can get nearly a third of your money back on your solar installation.
Solar panels make your home more desirable, which raises your home's value.
Manufacturers offer 20 or 25-year warranties on their solar panels - this is an investment that's built to last.

When considering Return On Investment (ROI) it is necessary to take into account performance and degradation rates over the life of the panel. Lower cost solar installations will mean lower upfront costs and may perform well for many years but over time (usually 5-8 years) most high quality panels will have lower degradation, less chance of failures and be operating closer to the rated power rating which means higher energy yields and greater returns. After 10 to 15 years the higher quality panels will no doubt be out performing low quality panels by 10% or more which is a considerable amount when you calculate this over the annual power generation.
The product warranty is the manufacturers warranty which protects the customer against defects which occur from both manufacturing issues and component or material failures. This means the manufacturer must either replace or provide a refund for solar panels which fail within the product warranty period. In general solar PV manufacturers must provide the minimum 10 year product warranty but a growing number of premium manufacturers (highlighted below) offer 12, 15, 20 and even 25 year product warranties.
The common industry standard is 80-83% power output retained after 25 years however some high-end manufacturers such as Jinko and LG guarantee 88-92% power output on most modules after 25 years of use. There is also a growing number of manufacturers now offering 30 year warranties on the unique dual glass and bifacial solar modules.
