Types of Solar Panels

Are you curious about which solar panels are the ideal choice for your residential solar panel installation? There are many options to choose from. Our team here in Charleston / Mt. Pleasant will work closely with you to decide which kind of solar panels are best for your home or business based on your design and energy needs. Here’s a breakdown of two main types of solar panels to get you started.

Front Contact Panels


The official name for front contact panels is Passivated Emitter and Rear Contact, but that’s a bit of a mouthful, so we shorten it to PERC. PERC panels are similar to conventional panels, but with an important difference: they contain an extra layer within the back side of the panel, which allows some sunlight to be reflected back into the solar cell. We’re sure these kinds of panels will PERC you right up!

Back Contact Panels


The mouthful term for these panels is Interdigitated Back Contact, or IBC. These panels are highly durable due to a thick layer of tin-plated copper on the back that holds the cell together. IBC panels are also high-efficiency, generating more energy due to the ability to use a wider range of light from the light spectrum to generate energy. While we don’t have a clever joke for IBC, we’re sure these panels will still go a long way to lighting up your life.

Backup Power

As the world increasingly turns to renewable energy sources to combat climate change and reduce reliance on fossil fuels, solar power has emerged as a prominent player in the transition to a sustainable energy future. However, harnessing the sun's energy during daylight hours is only part of the equation. To truly maximize the benefits of solar energy, the ability to store excess energy for later use is essential. This is where solar battery storage comes into play.

As exclusive SunPower installers in Charleston / Mt. Pleasant, SC, we not only are authorized to provide you with the best solar panels in the business — we can also provide you with power storage solutions, like the like the Tesla Powerwall or Enphase Battery for storing solar energy.

In addition to ensuring you’ll be able to keep your power on during a storm or a blackout, you can store your own solar-generated energy to use during peak energy usage times. Backup Storage also enables you to set your power preferences and monitor your system operation so you can easily transfer from grid power to battery power and back.

Like with the solar panels, battery storage comes with various options, such as battery size and amount of backup needed. As with your solar panels, we’ll work with you to understand your energy needs and help you choose the right battery. Because we’ve got your back, while SunPwer has your backup.
