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
"Prompt and Courteous"
"I would like to thank you for the prompt and courteous way the installation of Solar Panels was explained to us . The installation was neat and tidy and of no trouble to us at the time. We can definitely recommend Allied for any future work."
Sincere and ethical service
"I wasn’t particularly impressed with the representatives from [other solar] companies, particularly with regard to the lack of information about the types of solar panels and how they work. But Adrian came to give me a quote, and took care to explain, in detail, what I should know about solar panels. While I had done some research, I certainly learnt a lot more from Adrian. I had a sense that Adrian was sincere and ethical and I was comfortable when I made the decision to go with the Allied Group to install the panels."
"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."

Excellent job, no mess left
"Had Solar power installed today. Excellent job, no mess left. Everything was well explained to us before installation."
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."
"Allied have done right by us"
I am more than happy to pass the benefit on to others. To begin with, Allied is Australian owned and operated with solid background in the building industry and was recommended to us by word of mouth, as a reliable company, so our trust was hopeful and I can now say it is confirmed. We have a quality product installed at a good price and it is delivering what was promised. Richard came to our home at our convenience (on a Sunday) and spent several hours explaining the many aspects specific to our needs and simplifying the technical points. All options were presented with no pushy bias and no sugar coating of pro’s or cons.

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.
