The upward trend in the cost of traditional fuels has been observed all over the world for more than a year – as well as the search for opportunities to use cheaper alternative types of energy. Recently, the installation of solar panels has been gaining special popularity – after all, this is a real chance to abandon traditional sources of fuel in favor of the inexhaustible potential of solar energy. The service of the professional installation of solar panels is offered by Solar Masters, the leader of the Australian market for the development and implementation of innovative solar solutions in the field of energy conservation.
High Tech Technologies uses in the Solar Panels
Despite the fact that people who use solar panels are still considered innovators, their number is constantly growing. This is explained by the enormous prospects that the installation of solar panels Townsville opens up for ordinary consumers. First of all – the ability to minimize the cost of electricity bills. Devices that we know as solar panels belong to the high-tech type of equipment, as they are capable of not only absorbing but also converting the energy of solar light into electricity. The most common are devices of a flat shape – the so-called solar panels. Thanks to this configuration, it became possible to install solar panels on any surface.
But to ensure maximum conversion of solar energy, the installation of solar panels provides for the correction of the angle of inclination – in accordance with the geographical data of the area. An incorrectly defined place for the installation of solar collectors and non-compliance with the rules for choosing the optimal tilt of the device reduces the module efficiency of their work. Therefore, in order to install solar panels, business companies only hire highly qualified specialists like us.
Types of Solar Panels and how they are different from each other
Solar panels differ in the type of materials used in production; the main types of solar panels currently in use are polycrystalline and single-crystal panels or Monocrystalline Panels.
The main difference between monocrystalline and polycrystalline panels is the efficiency of solar power GoldCoast conversion. Monocrystalline panels have the highest efficiency – up to 22%. Monocrystalline silicon is made from highly purified raw materials (99.99%). Now there are solar modules made using PERC technology (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) – a passivated emitter of the rear contact and means the dielectric layer on the back of the PERC solar cell.
Commercially available polycrystalline cells have an efficiency of up to 18%. The lower efficiency is associated with the fact that in the production of polycrystalline silicon not only primary silicon of high purity is used, but also secondary raw materials (for example, recycled solar panels or silicon waste from the metallurgical industry). This leads to the appearance of various defects in the polycrystalline element. The efficiency of the elements is ultimately responsible for the physical size of the solar panels. The higher the efficiency, the smaller the panel area at the same power.
