Recently, the prices for solar panels have dropped sharply so the purchase is more accessible for consumers. This has meant that Solar Solutions has been able to maintain its highest level of standards whilst ensuring a competitive rate. Currently the rates of electricity from local suppliers remains at a record high which makes solar energy very interesting to invest into.
Given that Bonaire is the sunniest region of the Netherlands and one of the sunniest in the Caribbean, it is also a consistent and reliable source of power. The other advantage is of course the reduction in monthly expenses whilst making a positive contribution to the environment.
The brands and products I mention below have my personal preference but I can also supply you with a width range of other brands and products.
The Solar Solutions primary choice of panel is the Canadian Solar 265 Wp polycrystalline solar panels. These panels are one of the best in class, in terms of power output and long term reliability.
My choice of inverter is the SMA. This is because of its fantastic reliability and user friendly features. Based in Germany, SMA has a reputation as the world leader in solar-inverters. SMA inverters can be connected to the internet; this allows production status can be monitored from anywhere in the world.
