Choosing Solar Panels for Your Home: Why Degradation Rate Matters

Understanding Degradation Rate

Most solar panels on the market degrade at an average rate of 0.5% per year. This may seem small, but even a slight decrease can significantly impact your potential savings, especially over the 25 to 30-year lifespan of solar panels. Therefore, evaluating the degradation rate before making a decision is vital to ensure your solar system remains efficient and cost-effective for years to come.

Factors Affecting Degradation

Various factors influence a solar panel’s degradation rate, including climate, temperature, and the materials used in its construction. To guarantee optimal performance, opting for a premium solar solution designed to withstand these stressors is essential.
