One of the biggest disadvantages to solar panels for sale up to this point is that they have had pretty low efficiency rates. Basically meaning that the amount of energy they make compared to the amount of sun they get is limited. We’ll, a number of solar panel companies are working to increase that number, and Sharp is leading the way.
Sharp’s newest solar cell has a rate of 43.5% which is a pretty big increase over the previous record holder. Most solar panels for sale on the market today are much lower in the teens and twenties.
These constant breakthroughs will make solar panels a much more viable option for both businesses and homeowners and will help reduce costs over time. The more efficient the panels are, the fewer of them you will need to power your home or business. Once again bringing down the overall costs. Since you are making more electricity, you will also get a quicker return on investment.
There are a lot of people who say that solar panels just don’t make enough power. This of course all depends on where you live and how much sun you get. But as the solar panels improve, even those in cloudy areas or limited space will be able to use solar panels to power their houses.
Making it to 43.5% is a big step. I think it will only be a little while longer until we are seeing %50, and only a short while longer before the solar panels for sale on the market are also at around 50%. That means, quicker return on your money, less space needed, more power, and in time, lower costs.
