Polycrystalline Solar Planels
The process used to make polycrystallinesilicon is simpler and cost less. The amount of waste silicon is less compared to monocrystalline. Polycrystalline solar panelstend to have slightly lower heat tolerance than monocrystalline solar panels.
Monocrystalline Solar Planels
To make solar cells for monocrystalline solar panels, silicon is formed into bars and cut into wafers. These types of panels are called “monocrystalline” to indicate that the silicon used is single-crystal silicon. … As a result,monocrystalline panels are more efficient than their polycrystalline counterparts.
