The solar panel is the main component of the overall solar photovoltaic system. Being the main part of the developing sector, the companies producing solar panels must meet all international standards and quality requirements. There are a number of companies engaged in the field in Armenia. Solara company was able to position itself in the market by offering the best products to its customers and clients. The company undertakes the design, installation, and warranty service of the solar plant, followed by 24/7 monitoring. Use solar panels for sales and contact us.
And so: What is a solar panel and what are its advantages?
Solar panels have already entered the lives of people living in a rapidly changing world. They have become an integral part of both people's homes and businesses, which allows first of all to zero out the significant part of household electricity costs. In addition to high efficiency and power, they are produced with a beautiful design.
Before making calculations, it is necessary to have answers to several questions first, for example, how much is the house's electricity consumption from the beginning, in which solar zone is the house or your building located, such as the position and slope of the roof. By the way, solar photovoltaic panels show maximum productivity if they are tilted to the south. In order to get the power needed by the customer, you have to think of the right engineering solution or build pillars so that the panels are tilted to the south.
What are monocrystalline solar panels?
You may be offered different solar panels. Thus, you will be faced with a choice and will need professional advice. Monocrystalline or polycrystalline solar panels? Let's start with the first one.
Monocrystalline solar panels have a longer service life (usually manufacturers offer a warranty of up to 25 years). They are made from a single crystal of silicon, which is why they are called monocrystalline. If it is installed correctly, the productivity is higher than that of the polycrystalline panel.
Polycrystalline solar panels
Many have also heard about polycrystalline panels. Polycrystalline solar panels are made from small pieces of silicon crystals, and scraps. Thanks to them, environmental pollution is minimized. That's all to have an approximate idea, and experienced specialists in the field can tell about its technical use.
The difference between monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar panels
A monocrystalline panel has higher productivity in direct sunlight, and a polycrystalline panel has more stable productivity due to the distribution of crystals. The polycrystalline panel is better able to generate electricity in low light conditions.
What are the types of solar panels & batteries?
So, we already talked about solar panels above. If we generalize, we distinguish several main types of solar panels: monocrystalline, polycrystalline, PERC, thin film panels, and according to professional evaluations, another type - shingled solar panels. In particular, shingled solar panels have a fairly high productivity in the shade. It is their main advantage.
There are lithium-ion, lithium-polymer, nickel-cadmium, gel, and graphene batteries. These are the main types of batteries. If the panels are to be used to generate electricity, batteries, inverters and other charge controllers will be needed. Let's talk about the most important features of batteries. They are certainly cost-effective. The energy obtained from solar panels can be stored in batteries and used when there is no sunlight.
The most efficient solar panels & battery
The lithium-ion battery is one of the most popular and efficiently used batteries because its charge and discharge cycle is incomparably large, it is small in size, it has a large capacity, and it is flexible in terms of parameters. The battery is designed to store energy, even in places where there is no electricity at all. You can find more information about solar panel production on our website.
So, to summarize the main functions of solar panels, let's highlight one more. Monocrystalline, polycrystalline, and shingled types of solar panels are mostly used in the industry. The main industrial advantage of the solar plant is that no additional space is required, as in the case of CHPs. The plant assembled with solar panels significantly saves the money spent on electricity and is an ecologically clean and renewable natural resource source.
