Monocrystalline Solar Panels

Monocrystalline, as the name suggests, is constructed using one single crystal. This gives the panel a uniform appearance. Monocrystalline cells use more silicon and in turn are more expensive to produce. More silicon content produces greater efficiency and a better performance in lower light conditions. This has an effect on the total number of cells and square meter-age required to produce the same energy as other common solar panel types which can be a big factor when there is limited space for solar panel installation, such as limited north facing roof area.
