When a person is looking to install solar panels in their home there are some different types. The solar panel installer will help a person find the solar panel that will be fit this home. There are solar PPA, or perameters, that the installer will also go over with the homeowner.

Main Types of Solar Panels

There are three main types of solar panels that are used. They are the monocrystalline, polycrystalline, and thin-film. There are some things to consider when using these solar panels.

Monocrystalline and Polycrystalline Solar Panels

Both of these solar panels have silicon wafer. These wafers are arranged in row and column so that they will form a rectangle. They are then covered with glass and are framed. The number of silicon will vary based on the type of panel. The monocrystalline one while the polycrystalline uses multiple crystals. This is done before they are put together to make the entire panel.

Thin Film Solar Panels

These solar panels are made from different materials. They are made from cadmium telluide and this layer is used to help capture the light from the sun where the energy will be made. These solar panels can also be made of other materials including amorphous silicon or copper indium gallium seleide.

Different Sizes and Shapes

These panels have a black cell. They have this black color due to the way the light hits the crystals. The panels are not black alone and the backing is silver or black.

Polycrystalline Solar Panels

These solar panels are blue and this is due to the way the light hits the silicon. The frames are often silver in color and the back of the panels can be silver or white.

Thin Filmed Solar Panels

These panels look different from others. They are slim and they have a blue or black color tint.

Monocrystalline and Polycrystalline

These solar panels have higher efficiency ratings and they can produce more power. The efficiency is around 20 percent which is high for solar power lights. They are higher in wattage. Both of these panels are also around the same size and there are some variants based on the number of cells that they will have.

Thin Filmed Panels

These panels are lower efficiency and they put out only around 11 percent power. They do not come in uniformed sizes and each panel will vary in size based on needs.

Best Types Based on Property

The professional solar panel installer will help a person determine which type of solar panel is the best for their property. All of these solar panels types have advantages and they have disadvantages. If a person is looking to save money on their utility bill right away they should opt for the polycrystalline panels. These panels are less expensive to install and will allow a person to see savings right away. The monocrystalline solar panels will also have a person save money on their utility costs. The thin panels are often installed on the larger commercial properties. These panels are often heavy and the roofs can handle this extra weight. They can also be used on boats or RVs as they are portable. When purchasing solar panels it is important to look for ones with a warranty. Most solar panels come with a 25-year warranty so this will give the homeowner peace of mind.

Solar panels give a person the chance to save money on their heating and cooling. Solar energy is also better for the environment. This will allow a person to save money and get clean energy. Solar panels are a great addition to the home.

Wellness Coaching
$20 USD
50 & Beyond Health & Wellbeing Discovery Session

Join me for a comprehensive look into what it will take to stay physically and mentally strong as you move through the second half of your life.

We all want to age without the fear of suffering from a chronic illness and still have the energy and strength to live the life we want.

The number one reason people fail to stay healthy as they age is the inability to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for health transformation.

Through working with 1000's of clients over the last 20 years, I have been able to develop a coaching program that not only looks at nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management but also how to develop the right mindset needed to succeed.

Having a plan is not as important as having the ability to implement it.

If you are someone who struggles to follow healthy habits consistently. Or you are someone who wants to learn more about what they need to do personally to avoid chronic illness. Then my 30-minute Discovery Session is ideal for you.

From the 30 minutes we spend together, we will go through in specific detail what it is you can do today when it comes to what to eat, how to get the most from exercise, how to develop a powerful sleep routine and how to build a healthy environment needed to live a healthy life.

And with over 20 years of coaching experience in the health & wellness industry, I have witnessed firsthand what it takes to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for lasting change.

Expect to hear things that will challenge what you have always been told about nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. As someone who is over 50 and is stronger, fitter and healthier than I was in my 20s, 30s, & 40s, I am well-placed to know what works and doesn't as we move through this period of our lives.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.

Oxygen to the rescue! Great for Mental Health, Brain Injury, Detox, inflammation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are one of the oldest and safest treatments available. Oxygen detoxifies and heals. I was introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (HBOC) by Dr. Amen, a world reknown Psychiatrist. Oxygen is great for ADD, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Insomnia, Brain injuries, Wound healing and Inflammation.

This is from Dr. Amen's Clinic: "If you are struggling with a mental health condition, recovering from a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or dealing with cognitive or memory problems, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be for you. People all over the world have reported recovering from a variety of conditions and experiencing dramatic improvements with this type of popular therapy."

Most people will feel a difference off of one treatment, especially if you typically have trouble sleeping. You will sleep like a rock.
