A solar panel receives energy from the sun and transfers the energy to a controller inside the solar energy system, where the energy is converted into electricity. A solar panel is made of photovoltaic cells in different sizes depending on the rating of each panel. There are three basic types of solar panels for a solar energy system.
Monocrystalline Panels – Monocrystalline panels are made of silicon. They are ideal for rooftops and are aligned in one direction so sun rays fall on them at a correct angle which makes them work efficiently. They are expensive because of the high silicon content. These panels work best in bright sun.
Polycrystalline Panels– Polycrystalline panels are made up of silicon off-cuts, in the shape of rectangular blocks. These panels work in dull light.
Amorphous Panels- Amorphous solar panels are made from a thin layer of silicon that is spread on a base material such as metal or glass. These panels are easily curved, so they are compatible for curved structures where flat panel mounting is not viable. They are the cheapest and lightest among the solar panels.
