Frequently Asked Questions

Check out our great FAQs and Answers for our Aluminum Framed Solar Panels below:

1) Will all of Silicon Solar’s 12 volt solar panels charge a 12 volt battery?

Yes. Silicon Solar carries a number of 12v rated solar panels ranging from 7 watts to 90 watts. 12v panels with a higher wattage output will charge the battery more quickly than lower wattage output panels, but all will charge most types of 12v batteries. NOTE: Safely charging 12v batteries via solar panel very likely requires the use of a charge controller.

2) What type of aluminum-framed panels are best for me?

Silicon Solar carries both monocrystalline and amorphous 12v solar panels. Monocrystalline cells are the most efficient form of solar cells, and thus they are ideal for any uses that require high efficiency output with limited space. Amorphous solar panels have a lower efficiency rating, but are thinner and lighter than their crystalline counterparts, and, most importantly, perform much better in indirect sunlight. Therefore, if your local climate is often cloudy, amorphous panels will work best for you. All of our panels are manufactured with industrial grade aluminum framing and impact resistant glass ensuring decades of weather resistant use.

3) Can I mount these panels to various surfaces?

Yes. Predrilled holes in the frames of all aluminum panels allow for easy mounting. Silicon Solar also carries a range of universal mounting rack systems.

4) Can I link up these panels to increase the output of my solar system?

Yes. All modules include an attached weatherproof terminal box which allows for easy interconnection with other modules.

5) What is a charge controller?

A charge controller is a device that is wired between the solar panel and the battery bank. It controls the energy from the solar panels so that the battery bank is not overcharged or charged incorrectly.
