Tried and True Monocrystalline Solar Panels

For many years monocrystalline solar modules have been the workhorses of the solar market. Those iridescent blue faced panels you have been seeing on rooftops are probably of this type of panels.

For most of you this is the type of solar panels you will build because these types of cells are readily available.

They have distinct rounded individual solar cells visible from all angles stacked in very uniform rows.

This type of solar panel is produced from a single silicon ingot or crystal. Manufacturing costs are very high because of this process making them the most expensive solar modules on the market.

They are, however the most efficient type of solar panel making them the correct choice when space is at a premium.

Monocrystalline cells have a life expectancy far exceeding 25 years, probably over 50 years. The only real problem with this type of cell is it's fragile nature making it a requirement that it be mounted in a very rigid frame.
