Monocrystalline Solar Panels

Monocrystalline solar panels are cut from single crystalline silicon. The composition of each cell is made from a single piece of silicon. Mono solar panels are more efficient as compared to poly solar panels and they perform much better in lower light and high heat. 

The only downside to mono solar panels is that they are more expensive than poly solar panels. Monocrystalline is also called single-crystalline silicon solar panels. You can easily recognize them due to the dark black color.

Monocrystalline solar panels are also referred to as premium solar panels. They provide a more appealing aesthetics and they are more efficient. The silicon is typically formed into bars and then cut into wafers.

You’ll find monocrystalline solar panels in residential, commercial, or industrial properties. Because of their popularity, you’ll find them in large-scale installations. Monocrystalline solar panels are space-efficient and have the highest energy efficiency in comparison to any other type of solar panel.

On the other hand, these types of solar panels are made from a high-grade silicon that makes them perform better in warm weather conditions and extreme heat. Monocrystalline solar panels are durable and have a higher lifespan, most function quite longer than their warranty period.

Polycrystalline Solar Panels

Polycrystalline can be easily distinguished since the solar panels have squares. It has a blue, mosaic look and the angles are not cut. Polycrystalline is made by melting raw silicon. Most commercial panel installation use polycrystalline solar panels.

Polycrystalline solar cells are fused from multiple pieces of silicon. The small pieces of silicon are formed and treated to create a solar cell. However, poly solar panels are less efficient when compared to mono solar panels.

This type of solar panel typically comes with a 25-year warranty. Monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar panels have the same life expectancy. However, both solar panels can last more than their 25-year lifespan.

Many contractors use polycrystalline solar panels for both large-scale and small-scale installations. Also, these types of solar panels come in a vast range of power wattages.

Many property owners tend to go with polycrystalline solar panels because they are cheaper and they are environmentally-friendly. You can find these types of solar panels in roof-mounted arrays in residential and commercial properties.

Thin-Film Solar Panels

A thin-film solar panel is composed of thin films of semiconductors deposited on glass, plastic, or metal. Thin-film solar panels are lightweight and extremely flexible. However, thin-film solar panels are less efficient when compared to mono or poly solar panels. 

This type of solar panel is used for large-scale utility projects with some specialty applications. They are created using a thin layer of photovoltaic material against a support plate made of glass or plastic or laid into a substrate.

A solar rooftop array is an excellent option for residential and commercial properties that don’t have land for a ground mount solar system. On the other hand, a rooftop solar power system also adds value to the electric grid, increases price stability and grid reliability.

Solar energy helps reduce emissions of air pollutants and reduces global warming pollution. Also, solar panels act as rooftop insulators to keep you cool during the summer and warm during the winter. They’re very reliable and do not need frequent maintenance! Call us today and get a solar quote!
