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 …

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
"We are very happy customers!"
"We are very happy with the communications and the products Allied have supplied. They have excellent knowledge about their products and they were able to answer all of the questions we had. The best thing about Allied Construction and Roofing is that we got a face to face interview with one of their experienced salesmen and he showed us catalogues of all the products they had to offer."
Excellent job, no mess left
"Had Solar power installed today. Excellent job, no mess left. Everything was well explained to us before installation."
We can not recommend allied enough
"We have just had solar panels installed and from our first phone call through to our installer we can not recommend Allied enough. Thank you so much for a pleasant experience."
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."
"So happy we chose Allied to install our solar."
"We had quotes from 3 other businesses prior to receiving a call from Allied & I can not recommend them enough. From their first initial call to the sales rep to installation, nothing was a problem & everything was explained in laymen terms. Great job to all the staff with Allied, thank you.
"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.
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.
