Solar Panels are installed to generate electricity by using sunlight. Solar panels work best when there’s no shade cast upon them. In fact, the shadow effect falls on even simply a part of one solar panel in your solar array will probably compromise the output of the full system. The shadow effect occurs when a photovoltaic system does not receive the same amount of incident irradiation level throughout the system due to […]

How to read solar panel specifications. The reason for this is that most people do not understand what each of the terms in the specifications sheet for a solar panel mean. Even if you do happen to know what the terms mean, it is another thing to know how much importance to place on a […]

What is Half-Cut Cell? Half-cut cell mono PERC solar modules have solar cells that are cut in half, which improves the solar module’s performance and durability. Traditional 60-cell and 72-cell solar panels will have 120 half-cut cells and 144 half-cut cells, respectively. When solar cells are halved, their current is also halved, so resistive losses […]

If you’re looking for a promising career, and care about the environment, consider being a solar panel installer. As CNBC reports, the economy is projected to swell by 11.5 million jobs over the next decade—and a significant portion of this growth will come from the workers who assemble, install, and maintain solar panel systems on roofs […]
