What is a Solar Panel?
Solar panels absorb energy from the sun and feed it into a solar inverter, which then converts that energy into the right electricity for your home. Most panels will have a lifespan of over 20 years and degrade in their production by less than 0.4% every year. However, this will differ depending on the brand, type of panel and the weather conditions of the area where the panels are being installed.
