Frequently Asked Questions

  • What kind of steel is used in solar panels?


    Stainless steel is primarily used thanks to its resistance to corrosion. Solar panels are often located in places where the elements are a major factor, so stainless steel is popular with the solar industry since it does not rust. Additionally stainless steel does not warp, break, or melt in extreme temperatures.

  • Why is aluminum used in solar panels?


    The lightweight and good conductivity of aluminum make it an ideal metal for solar panels. Furthermore, aluminum is affordable and has the potential to increase the availability of solar panels. Due to its reflective properties, aluminum may even help improve the efficiency of solar panels.

  • What are solar panel mounts made out of?


    In the solar industry, solar mounts are typically constructed out of aluminum or steel. Both metals are extremely resistant to corrosion and affordable. Which of the two metals is appropriate depends on the environment and climate.
