We have also compiled some useful information below to guide you through the selection process if you are just interested in bolstering your knowledge of the best photovoltaic (PV) modules available for your needs.
The first step is to determine what kind of capacity you need for your home or business. Capacity is measured in Watts, and can be increased either by increasing the surface area or efficiency of a panel.
Along with the capacity is the rated power tolerance, which is the range of power the panel will produce below and above its capacity. When we survey your home, we will determine the right capacity and rated tolerance to ensure that you can provide all the energy you need and more. We will take into account weather conditions throughout the year for your particular environment, a particularly important step.
Along with capacity and rated power tolerance, the efficiency rating is important to consider, as it can range from around 10% all the way up to 20%. The efficiency rating tells you how much electricity you will get out of the local sunlight conditions for your home or business. The efficiency is particularly important to consider during the design phase, because a beautiful custom design often means less surface area for the panels. We provide our own, in-house design team to calculate exactly what kind of efficiency rating will work best according to your design specifications and budget.
Often this means choosing the right type of panel for the job. Mono-crystalline, poly-crystalline, and amorphous are available, but for our customers, we only use mono-crystalline because they are the highest efficiency. Having the highest efficiency allows us to create spectacular designs that naturally work with the contours and architecture of your home. Even traditional style homes look completely natural with solar power, however with poly-crystalline and amorphous panels this becomes more difficult to achieve. They are simply bulkier and not as attractive.

Currently, a lot of solar installers are offering "free solar," but there are many caveats with the word "free." One of them is that these installers cut corners on quality, particularly when it comes to the brand of the solar panels used. GeoPeak Energy only uses top brands such as SunPower, Kyocera, Sharp, Sanyo, and Mitsubushi.
These brands are tested for higher durability and longevity, will perform at 50% greater efficiency, and are guaranteed to last decades longer than less reliable brands. Better brands will get you better performance when you most need it, such as inclement weather like heavy snow and high winds.
The certification on panels is also critical, since it will determine whether or not you receive tax credits and rebates to make solar more affordable. It is absolutely essential that you buy only government certified solar equipment right now, which is why GeoPeak Energy only sells such panels.
To find out the best brands for your home or business, give us a call anytime toll free: (888) 526-4428. Our design staff will be happy to consult with you free with no strings attached to determine the best brand for your project.
Upon releasing its Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), the state of New York determined that 25% of all its energy should come from renewable energy by 2013. Right now the most viable option, hands down, is solar power. An amazing amount of incentives are available for a limited time that can cut your up front costs by as much as 50%, so please call us immediately to take advantage of these.
