World is growing so fast that energy demands are increasing day by day. To meet today’s energy need,
world need to produce more and more energy.
Are there any alternatives for producing energy now a days? Yes, among all the sources used to produce
energy, solar energy production is one of them. Solar energy is one time investment. Solar energy is
environment friendly and long term solution for energy needs. Solar energy panel may be costly but
they are one time investment. You don’t have to pay any bill for using solar energy panel. They are
permanent source of energy without any interruption. Solar energy panels are cost effective and can be
use for long times once installed.
HOW SOLAR ENERGY PANELS WORK
Solar energy panel works on the principle of photoelectric effect also called photo voltaic effect. Solar
energy panel convert light energy directly into electric energy.
Solar energy panels have photoelectric cells in them. When sunlight falls on solar panel, electrons in
photo voltaic cell absorbs light photons which excite conduction band and electron move from valence
band to conduction band creating hole-electron pair separated by p-n junction which induces current.
Solar energy panel produce direct current(DC) which is converted into alternating current (AC) by using
inverters for use.
There are so many types of Solar energy panel.
Here we are going to mention some of them
1) Multicrystalline Silicone
silicon is very good semiconductor material used for the production of solar cells. Crystalline silicon
cells were made in 1950s that’s way they are also called first generation. Solar cells made from
crystalline silicon are single-junction cells. Lab tested efficiency of Multi crystalline silicon is 20.4%.
2) Solid-state Solar cell
In Solid state solar cell semiconductor devices are used which include semiconductor diode,
transistors and integrated circuits. Now a days, solid state cells are used in all electronics except
3) Thin-film solar cell
In thin-film solar cell photo voltaic material is deposited on glass, plastic or metal. Thin-film solar
cell are used commercially now a days. Thin-film is cheaper but it is less efficient. Thin-film solar
cells have life span of more than 20 years. Thin-film cells were used in calculators in late 1970s.
Thin-film solar cell have efficiency of 22.3%.
4) Hybrid Solar cell
Hybrid solar cells contain organic material that is composed of conjugated polymers which absorb
light as donor and carries holes. Hybrid solar cell have benefits of both organic and inorganic
semiconductor material. Photo voltaic layer in hybrid cell is composed of an organic material with
high electron affinity material. Hole excitation is greater than electron excitation in hybrid solar cell.
Polymer is used for the transportation of electrons.
Efficiency is affected by changing the structure. Hybrid solar cell’s efficiency and life span need to
be increased for commercial use.
5) Organic solar cell
Organic solar cell also called plastic solar cell which use organic electrons. Organic solar cells are
light in weight as compared to silicon-based cells. Organic solar cell known as polymer solar cells.
Polymer solar cells are less efficient and less stable. They are cheaper.
Earlier 10% efficiency was achieved.
In 2018, efficiency of 17.3% was achieved.
we are going to talk about the different shapes of Solar energy panels. We’ll talk about different changes
made to solar energy panel’s shape and how these changes have affected the efficiency of solar panels.
There have been many changes made to solar panel.
Earlier flat solar panels were available only now curved solar panels have also been introduced. Curved
solar panels are also named as flexible solar panels.
Curved or flexible solar panels have many benefits over flat solar panels.
1)Curved Solar Panel can stick to any surface
2)Curved solar panel are light in weight.
3)Curved solar panel require less area.
4)Curved solar panel capture sun energy from their both curvy sides.
5)Curved solar panel are also flexible so they are unbreakable.
6)Curved solar penal are less wind resistant as compared to flat solar panels.
7)Curved solar panel are more efficient.
People often ask which solar panel is best? It depends on your usage and your budget.
But as Curved solar panel are new and latest addition in market, so they are more efficient and
more productive. They have efficiency rating up to 46%. Curved solar panel absorbs less energy as
compared to flat solar panel keeping your homes cooler. Curved solar panels consume 12% heat and
reflect 88% heat and comes with the warranty of 25 years making it most wanted solar panel across
the globe. Curved solar panel can also be used as roof for car parking in your offices. Curved Solar
panel produces more power leaving behind flat solar panels.
We have vast experience in solar panel energy field. We have authentic knowledge which we are
Solar energy is environment friendly with no pollution. Some people may think that curved solar panel
might weight more due to their shape but they weight almost 70% less than flat solar panel. Curved
solar panel are made of thin and lighter material.
As all of us know energy is basic need of every individual. Solar energy is best solution for you. Some
other sources can produce more energy than solar panels but they cannot match the ease and comfort
of solar panels.
Like? Generator is another source for producing energy but it needs fuel which is burden on your
pocket. Solar panel are one time investment. Generator are also so noisy.
Wind turbine can also produce more energy but its also can’t match the comfort of solar panel. People
can’t place wind turbine in their houses or roof while solar panel require less place and are effortless
source of energy.
Solar energy need no consumable fuel to produce energy. Only thing needed is to keep solar panel dirt
free to get more sun light on it.
The more the Sun light, the more energy solar panel produces.
Solar energy is most valuable and pollution free energy source. As energy demand is increasing, there is
more need of solar energy to be produced.
Solar Energy panels will keep you financially balanced only needing your care to keep working.
