Solar Panel

The term solar panel is used colloquially for a Photo-voltaic (PV) module. A PV module is an assembly of Photo-voltaic cells mounted in a frame work for installation. Photo-voltaic cells use sunlight as a source of energy and generate direct current electricity. A collection of PV modules is called a PV Panel, and a system of Panels is an Array. Arrays of a photovoltaic system supply solar electricity to electrical equipment.


As per MNRE Standards, Solar Panels are warranted for

Difference between Mono and Polycrystalline Solar Panels

Monocrystalline Solar Panels Polycrystalline Solar Panels
They have the highest level of efficiency at 15-20% Efficiency is only around 13-16% due to low levels of silicon purity.
They require less space compared to other types due to their high efficiency The manufacturing process is cheaper and easier than the monocrystalline cells
The life of Solar Cells os longest because of it's purity The life is shorter because of less Silicon and other doping materials.
They perform better in low levels of sunlight, making them ideal in cloudy conditions Efficiency is less in shady/cloudy areas
