There are three main types of panels available in today’s market:
Amorphous – These cells are used in calculators, watches, toys and small solar applications. Amorphous cells tend to work very well in levels of low light; however the surface area of the panel needs to be much greater in order to produce even a small amount of power. Some amorphous cells are flexible but are much larger in size per watt than mono crystalline panels. Amorphous panels claim to be more shade tolerant, however the size of the panel required to produce anything of real power renders the use of this type of panel impractical in the Caravan, camping and off-road industry.
Polycrystalline – These panels were very commonly used in the Caravan, camping and off – road industry, most installations nowadays use the Mono crystalline panels. Polycrystalline panels use a light reflective crystal which tends to attract the light from sharper angles. This is a great feature for fixed mounted panels; however they also have flaws when compared against the Mono crystalline panels. Polycrystalline panels work fantastic in areas of high light such as the northern and western parts of Australia (high Western Australia, NT and QLD). However, the efficiency of a polycrystalline panel is reduced quite significantly when used in overcast or low light locations such as the lower parts of Australia or Eastern Australia.
Mono crystalline – The most popular type of panel used in today’s market due to its high tolerance to low light and overcast conditions. This type of panel was not as popular a few years ago due to cost factors, however, as manufacturing cost for this panel has reduced, the Mono crystalline panels have by far taken the lead as the most “ALL ROUNDED” panel used in the off – road industry. The Mono crystalline panel will 90% of the time outperform the other two types of panels listed above. The efficiency of a Mono crystalline panel is on par with a polycrystalline in levels of high light and it far exceeds the performance of the poly when in levels of low light or overcast.
Mono crystalline panels make for fantastic panels for the off-road / portable power usage due to the all rounded efficiency with all levels of light.
We offer a full range of fixed and portable Mono-crystalline Solar Panels.
