Types of Photovoltaic Panels
There are essentially two main types of panels readily available on the market today: Monocrystalline and Polycrystalline. Monocrystalline panels have a wee bit higher efficiency, have better high temperature performance, but is more difficult to manufacture, hence more expensive. Polycrystalline lag behind the Monocrystalline variety in all of the aforementioned traits, but are more economical. Noted in the following are some of the more popular PV panel vendors I’ve come across in my research.
