We have been hearing a lot of disinformation on the Radio lately about solar electric panels. Of the most misleading is the idea that one particular brand of panel is much “better” than another. It is not the panel that matters, but rather the power output of the solar system as a whole that matters.
Similar to the rules and regulations on the Automobile and Aviation industry, Solar panels are subject to very strict quality controls. All California Energy Commission approved panels will be performing well 25 or more years from now. Virtually all panels are performance warranted for 25 years, that is a very long time.
The things that are important with regard to the purchase of a solar electric system are:
1. The Installed Cost Per DC Watt
2. The Quality of the Installation
3. The Optimization and Monitoring of the System
While some panels may put out more power per square foot, their cost is MUCH higher. They are not “better” panels, and as a system, they will not give you a bit more power over time than a similarly sized but much lower cost system, they just cost more.
If a salesperson claims they have a panel that will last longer or produce more that 100% of the panels rated energy production, they are misleading you.
A more important question is, “How many years has your company been in solar, are your installers in house, or subcontracted, and are they paid by the job or by the hour?” Many years in solar, in house and caring installers that are paid by the hour results in a much higher quality installation than slam bang by the job installations.

Solar Water Heating Pioneers Since 1979
“Skyline” Solar Water Heating for Residential and Commercial Applications
We literally turned solar water heating on its side in 1990, with the first of four patents. Rather than the bulky, heavy 4’ by 10’ panels weighing up to 160-pounds that our competition uses, our 20” by 12’ panel weighs just 38-pounds, and our 20” by 6’ panel weighs just 19-pounds. And rather than sticking twelve feet into the air, the Skyline panel lays on its side following the contour or your roof. Our lightweight design spans more roof joists, which creates less weight impact on your roof.
We manufacture our flagship Skyline product locally in Carmichael, CA. This patented product is the only solar water heater offered in 26 attractive architectural colors. Solar Water Heating provides the most value for your money with 3 to 4 times the energy output of solar electric PV per square foot! Solar PV and Solar Water Heating are a great combination!
