Photovoltaic Cells

The brands available include CayMax, Sharpe, Sanyo, Kyocera, Isofoton, Yingli, Solon, Eurener, CSG, Inventux, First Solar, Nexpower, EPV, and many more.

There are 3 main types of Photovoltaic panels widely available. These are: Monocrystalline, Polycrystalline (or Multicrystalline) and Amorphous.

Monocrystalline are generally the most efficient and most expensive to produce. They are a slice of a single crystal. These cells are rigid and therefore are manufactured in rigid frames.

Polycrystalline consist of a large number of crystals. They are sliced from a large block of silicon which consists of a large number of crystals. The appearance of these panels is speckled due to the material and again need to be mounted in solid frames. Generally these cells are slightly less efficient than the monocrystalline cells.

Amorphous cells are considerably thinner cells than the other two types. In this instance a thin film of amorphous (non crystalline) silicon is placed onto a wide choice of surfaces. Due to the nature of the cells they are flexible, and can therefore be manufactured onto a flexible layer to create a flexible panel. They are the least expensive process for manufacturing cells and are the least efficient. Power output can reduce in the first few months of use, so quoted output should reflect this fact.
