Houses that are 2,000 square feet need fewer panels than ones that are 4,000 square feet. So, for example, the average house in Florida utilizing a 5-kW system will have 15 or 16 standard 320-watt panels installed. In Texas, you may need less panels due to the higher number of sunny days, and in New Jersey, you may need more panels to generate higher kWh. Large office buildings in any state will need many more.
So, what are the most efficient solar panels in today’s market? At West Bay Energy, we have chosen panels built by Mitrex-Integrated Solar Technology. Because our job is to offer our customers the best panels on the market, we’ve spent a good deal of time reviewing the integrity of the construction, amount of wattage per panel, company warranties, and the overall quality of the workmanship. For these reasons, we have selected Mitrex as our solar panel supplier and partner.
Mitrex has developed aesthetically attractive solar panels that can be directly integrated onto roofs of homes and office buildings, into structure facades, and even built into glass windows or walls, siding, greenhouses, railings, and more. The Mitrex systems have frameless modules, hidden mountings, homogeneous surfaces, and can feature the appearance of any material, color, or pattern.
In addition, the Mitrex company has the same basic goals as we do here at West Bay Energy: “…to accelerate the adoption of sustainable, energy-generating, human-made structures” and to use renewable energy to reduce our carbon footprints and help save our environment.
Designed to outperform and outlast other solar panels, Mitrex panels installed expertly by West Bay Energy can last up to 25 to 30 years with little to no maintenance. A simple bi-annual cleaning will keep your panels working effortlessly.
The panels have no moving parts, and they are, of course, built to last in the sun. They contain integrated photovoltaics, high-quality materials, anti-reflective, anti-soiling patented coatings, and we can install panels whose surfaces match the color or pattern of your home’s current clay or asphalt tiles.
