Can solar panels of different brands be combined in the same installation?

Mixing solar panels of different brands is possible, but there are some important considerations to take into account before doing so: Electrical compatibility: It is important that the solar panels being considered for connection have compatible electrical characteristics. This includes power rating (in watts), current and operating voltage. By combining panels with different specifications, it […]


In this post we will analyse the characteristics of a 500W solar panel from three major brands in the photovoltaic panel sector: Canadian Solar, Trina Solar and Longi.Their differences will be reviewed, noting the advantages and disadvantages of each one. The models to be studied are: Trina Vertex Solar Panel 500W (TSM-DE18M(II)) Longi Solar Panel […]


As we already know, a solar panel is made from the chemical silicon with a purity of 99.9%. This silicon is melted into a mono-crystalline or polycrystalline ingot depending on the speed of the crystallisation process. Monocrystalline ingots have a higher yield as a result of a slower and more controlled crystallisation process. Once the […]

Cleaning of solar panels

Solar photovoltaic installations without batteries are characterised by minimal maintenance requirements. However, it is advisable to periodically clean the surface of the solar panels. Dirt accumulated on the surface of the solar panels can significantly reduce the energy production of the installation. In the worst case, the impact can be up to 6% loss of […]
