Ask us about the right choice for your home
Which type of solar panels will be best for your home? It depends on where you live and what budget you’re working towards. First, let’s take a look at the types of panels available. Solar panels are made from two main types of Silicon cells:
1. Monocrystalline “Single Crystal”
2. Polycrystalline “Multi Crystal”
Imagine a source of pure, powerful, clean & never-ending energy that you can claim for yourself.
When we put it that way, the sun becomes a consumer’s best friend! But many people aren’t sure how solar energy works. It’s actually very simple …
- Black Silicon Panel with Nice Aesthetics
- Generates more Electricity per Panel
- Lower Temperature Co-efficiency
- Performs better in Hotter Conditions
- Produces Higher Efficiency Cells
- Reliable Longevity Performance of Panels
- Accelerated Performance in Low Light Level
- New Darker Blue Solar Cells
- Ideal for Commercial Roof Space Projects
- Manufacturing Cost are up to 20% Less
- Majority P.V Solar Installed in Global Market
- High-Quality Control
- Top Solar Panels are Polycrystalline
What’s the difference between Monocrystalline & Polycrystalline solar panels?
Monocrystalline solar cells are manufactured from a single form of high-quality silicon crystal. These cells are typically 10-15% more efficient than their cousins, Polycrystalline cells. Monocrystalline have been the panel selector’s choice in Australia as they are among the oldest technology, most efficient, higher powered, most reliable solar panels to produce more electricity from the sun. You can recognise a Monocrystalline solar panel by its purer dark black silicon cells as opposed to the impure bluer colour silicon cells of a Polycrystalline panel.
Polycrystalline solar panels are manufactured from a blended source of silicon crystal. The manufacturing process cost up to 20% less than Mono’s, which makes the Poly’s a popular choice as they are a becoming more affordable. Polycrystalline solar panels are recognised by their bluish colour and visible grain like ‘metal flaking mosaic effect’ seen throughout the panel. The reason for this is due to the lower grade silicon used to manufacture these panels. As a rule of thumb, Polycrystalline solar panels have a slightly lower cell efficiency than Monocrystalline panels.

Here’s what our clients have to say
"I was extremely impressed by the prompt service I received"
"I was extremely impressed by the prompt service I received in regards to our Solar Panels. The Allied Solar representative turned up on time did the work. Contacted the electricity company for us. This was absolutely painless. Allied even changed the bracket colour to match our roof so it was not an eyesore. The aesthetics worked well.
I am extremely pleased with the whole process
"The technician who installed our solar panels was very professional and it was a good experience. The local electricity distribution company activated the panels the following week. This means that, in less than 3 weeks since our initial meeting, I was using solar power. I am extremely pleased with the whole process and I would have no hesitation in recommending your company for the installation of solar panels."
So different from other companies I have dealt with.
"The [solar] panels were installed no problem and they pump out power even on the dullest days. I left everything in their hands and this meant I had no phoning around everything was done for me. I cannot recommend them more highly."
"There was no pressure"
From the first contact we found the information they provided us was factual, and there was no pressure to enter into a commitment to proceed with our Solar Panel installation. When we did decide to invest in the Solar power installation all that was promised was delivered in a timely manner and there were no delays other than those that were out of Allied Group’s control. We are proud to display Allied's sign on the corner post of our property in Tasmania in order to assist them in promoting their excellent solar product and other services and would also have no hesitation in recommending their services to other prospective customers & friends looking to install solar to their homes.

"Allied have done right by us"
We felt confident in the choice we made and the work was duly done as negotiated. I’d have to say Allied deliver on their promise and that is good quality and service from concept to delivery. Thanks so much, guys, looking forward to air conditioning this Summer without the crippling bills! Go Solar!

"We are very happy with the company's communications."
"Allied Construction and Roofing have a salesperson come to your door to go through every detail. Not only did they know everything about their products, but they were also able to answer all of the questions we had. They offer follow up calls and great communication. The installation fellas are also super efficient and very professional, neat, and tidy. We are very happy customers."

Choosing between Monocrystalline & Polycrystalline?
There are key differences to consider when choosing the right solar panel for your household. Both panels have their benefits and will perform differently according to your geographical location and rooftop space. If you live in a hot area or have limited roof space then it’s a good choice to go with the Monocrystalline, and if you have a large roof space with a budget in mind, the Polycrystalline will be your selection.
