Solar Panels need no introduction, they have become the go to technology for reducing domestic and commercial energy bills due to their effectiveness and value for money.

With solar becoming so mainstream there are hundreds of companies producing panels available in the UK, inevitably there is a wide range of price and quality. We evaluate the products against a series of criteria on their own merits and the benefits they have in specific use cases.

Below are the main criteria we consider when selecting solar PV panels.

  • Efficiency and technology

  • Build quality

  • Aesthetics

  • Value for money

  • Ethical supply chain

  • Bankability of manufacturer

  • Warranties

They produce a range of environmentally friendly long life monocrystalline silicon solar modules. This includes innovative patented shingled technology and half-cut cell solar modules.

Due to their integrated supply chain and manufacture TW is a brand that can demonstrate ethical company practices.

Perlight solar panels are produced in a highly-automated facility to strict quality control standards, and are a well-known brand in the industry. With a wide range of outputs and a reputation for innovation, Perlight panels are suitable for both domestic and commercial installations alike.

Eurener is one of the oldest module manufacturers in Europe. The Spanish company was founded in 1997 and uses highly automated production lines to produce a range panels using split cell, back contact, and transparent glass/glass technologies. They offer a range of outputs – we have chosen their highest efficiency full black modules.

Explore JA Solar Panels, recognized by BloombergNEF for their precision robotic production and superior panel quality. Made from high-quality silicon, these panels offer exceptional performance and durability. JA Solar provides two solar cell technologies: the efficient PERC or P-Type and the superior N-Type, which delivers a 3.9% increase in efficiency. Choose N-Type for peak efficiency, though they come at a higher price and are less available.

More About Solar Panel Technology


As a general guide, mono-crystalline and hybrid panels have the greatest efficiencies (up to 24%). The efficiency of the panel describes the percentage of energy captured per m². This means that 250W hybrid or mono panels tend to be smaller than those of polycrystalline or thin film technologies. Monocrystalline has been considered a better choice until recently when the new generation of polycrystalline panels have achieved equivalent outputs.

The cells are very dark (almost black) and can be visually preferable to polycrystalline panels. The dark cells cause the panel to heat up more than poly panels, leading to a small degree of efficiency drop.


Polycrystalline modules are recognisable by their blue opalescent appearance. These panels are traditionally slightly less efficient in most cases than monocrystalline so may take more space to achieve the same peak output. New generation poly panels are becoming popular as they have been proven in field tests to outperform mono in varied light levels and can provide the highest yearly returns in Northern Europe (Great Britain!). They have the additional advantage of being cheaper than the high end mono panels. With efficiency of poly being constantly improved and lower production costs polycrystalline is becoming increasingly popular.

Thin-Film (Amorphous)

Thin-Film or Amorphous Silicon panels require the most amount of space as they have the lowest peak efficiency. These panels are less susceptible to the effects of shading and efficiency-drop when the module gets hot. These modules are the cheapest per watt, but can show higher yields than either mono or poly crystalline panels in some situations. As they are available frameless they are more suitable for building-facade cladding and large commercial roofs. Modern CIGS (Copper-Indium-Gallium-Selenium) modules have extremely attractive appearance, efficiencies of up to 13.4% and excellent energy yields, with the potential for greater improvements in the manufacturing process many people predict that thin film will become more widely used in the future especially in industrial applicatio

Hybrid Panels

Hybrid Technologies, such as Sanyo/Panasonic’s HIT (Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin layer) modules are made of a thin mono crystalline silicon wafer surrounded by ultra-thin amorphous silicon layer. These panels are among the most expensive but have very high efficiencies and generate more clean energy than other conventional solar cells, even at high temperatures and in a wide variety of conditions. Monitoring of our hybrid panel systems has proven that they perform exceptionally well year in year out.
