Difference between commercial and residential solar panels

When it comes to solar panels, there are two types: commercial and residential. They differ in three ways:

Commercial vs residential solar panels
1. Planning

Planning for residential solar panels installation is far easier than it is for commercial. With the latter, many things need to be taken into account. Other businesses in the neighborhood, permits and technical specifications…Contrastingly, planning to install residential solar panels is far easier, and it makes the majority of the projects of most solar companies.

2. Size, cost and effciency

Commercial solar panels are bigger than residential ones. They measure 96 cells in size, while residential solar panels measure 72 cells.  Commercial solar panels are slightly more energy efficient because of their size and more cells, the difference isn’t big when it comes to the final calculation when everything is taken into account, since solar power is calculated per kilowatt-hour. Residential solar panels are cheaper since houses require less panels than commercial buildings. 

3. Installation

Even though it might be more difficult to plan for commercial solar panels, installing them is usually cheaper and easier. The reason is because they are usually installed on flat roofs, while residential ones are installed on sloped roofs of suburban homes. Solar panel installation on flat surfaces is more affordable, quicker and easier. Our expert team is highly experienced and installing on both flat and sloped roofs. 

solar panels - how do they actually work?

When the sunlight reaches the solar panels, the photovoltaic effect occurs. To clarify, the silicone that is present in the panels reacts and displaces electrons from atoms. That creates an electrical flow – Direct Current (DC). This current then gets transferred to an inverter where it is transformed into Alternating Current (AC), which is what your home appliances use.

Your solar panels create a surplus of energy which is put back into the electrical grid. That earns you credits and it’s called net metering. Energy sent to the grid is recorded by a net meter, and also used from the grid. These credits are best used during overcast days or at night. It makes for a perfect storage solution and doesn’t cost you anything.

There is an alternative way to store energy, which is with batteries. It decreases your dependence from the grid, and maintains the ability of your company to be powered during power outages.  This type of storage system can also include monitoring software which determines the energy use in your company, solar production and utility rates.
