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
"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.
Marie Bell & Mick Kelly
"Our overall experiencewith Allied was great!"
"We had Allied come out and restore our roof and install solar panels last week. The consultant, Troy, was friendly, knowledgeable, very personable and helpful. The guys who restored the roof and the ones who fitted the solar panels were also great, friendly and efficient."
"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."

"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.
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 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.
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.
