WHAT ARE SHINGLED SOLAR PANELS?

Conventional solar panels use various numbers of solar cells depending on the desired output of the panel. The solar cells are laid out across the panel with spaces between them.  They are electrically connected together using copper busbars (ribbons) by means of high temperature soldering processes. The solar cells are laid out across the panel with spaces between them.  They are electrically connected together using copper busbars (ribbons) by means of high temperature soldering processes. The more copper busbars used the less [...]

SOLAR CELLS TECHNOLOGY ROUTE— HJT IS THE FUTURE OF THE SOLAR CELL TECHNOLOGY

HJT is the acronym for hetero-junction solar cells. As a N type mono bifacial cell, it has the advantages of simple process, high power generation and low electricity cost, which is considered as a potential successor to the popular PERC solar cell. The relatively simple process is a big advantage of HJT cell According to the prediction of PV infolink, the installation volume of HJT cells will keep rising, it is expected to reach 20GW(yearly), with a market share for over 10%. At present, HJT [...]

ADVANTAGES OF GRID-TIED SYSTEMS

ADVANTAGES OF GRID-TIED SYSTEMS 1. It can adopt distributed construction, can distribute power nearby or on the spot, and can enter and exit the power grid flexibly. It not only helps to enhance the power system’s ability to withstand some disasters, but also improves the load balance of the power system and reduces the loss of the line. 2. It can make the perfect combination of solar cell components and buildings, can be used for power generation, and can also be [...]

WHAT IS A HALF-CELL SOLAR PANEL?

WHAT IS A HALF-CELL SOLAR PANEL? Panel trends have a way of quickly becoming mainstream. IHS Markit predicted that passivated emitter rear cells (PERC) technology would go from a blip in the market in 2014 to mainstream by 2020—a prediction confirmed by anyone looking at panel models released this year. PERC is here to stay. The next technology on that mainstream path is half-cell designs. The ninth edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaic (ITRPV) predicts the market share of [...]

COVID-19 IS HEIGHTENING THE STAKES FOR OFF-GRID SOLAR IN AFRICA

COVID-19 IS HEIGHTENING THE STAKES FOR OFF-GRID SOLAR IN AFRICA Covid-19 is testing energy infrastructures across Africa, and against this backdrop, off-grid solar is likely to play an increasingly vital role on the continent. “Without energy, we can’t fight this,” said Bill Lenihan, CEO of Zola Electric, a company that develops solar and storage systems in Africa. “The Covid-19 pandemic is at an earlier stage in Africa. While we don’t know what will happen, we expect the impact to be significant, [...]

SOLAR FARMS: WHAT ARE THEY, AND HOW DO YOU START ONE?

SOLAR FARMS: WHAT ARE THEY, AND HOW DO YOU START ONE? The solar industry has seen rapid growth over the past decade, and a major contributing factor has been the surge in solar farms popping up across the globe. In this article, we’ll explain the different types of solar farms, how much they cost and how to start one. Solar farms and community solar The idea of community solar has taken off in recent years as more homeowners have realized that they [...]

FRAMED OR FRAMELESS? NEW INSTALLATION SOLUTIONS FOR DOUBLE GLASS PHOTOVOLTAIC MODULES

FRAMED OR FRAMELESS? NEW INSTALLATION SOLUTIONS FOR DOUBLE GLASS PHOTOVOLTAIC MODULES The debate about whether a double-glass module has a frame or no frame is a headache for all manufacturers of double-glass modules. Different design institutes, EPCs, investors, and owners have different ideas and requirements. Nowadays, a new type of double-glass module mounting frame almost perfectly solves all the concerns from the solar panel factory to the owner. As can be seen from the figure above, the frame is only installed on [...]

SOLUTIONS TO REPLACING AGING AND FAILING INVERTERS

SOLUTIONS TO REPLACING AGING AND FAILING INVERTERS Things fail with age, whether they be cars, phones or inverters. An optimizer manufacturing company has published a white paper looking at the failure rate of central inverters used in aging 600 V solar plants. The inverters in question are five to 10 years old and are beginning to fail. And not in isolated cases here and there, but with “a high degree of regularity,” according to the study. Inverter failure is not the issue, [...]

REASONS YOU SHOULD INSTALL HOME PANELS NOW

REASONS YOU SHOULD INSTALL HOME PANELS NOW There are many advantages that solar energy has to offer over traditional sources of energy. Not only it is completely renewable but is also protects the environment. Here are some of the advantages of solar energy. MP Solar Top Ranking Products in 2019: perc 400w solar panel, 330w black mono solar panel, 96cells 500watt solar panel Solar is a proven technology. Currently, there are 47.1 gigawatts of total solar capacity installed nationwide, so it’s safe to say [...]

SOLAR PANELS INCREASE GRASSES FOR SHEEP AND COWS BY 90%

SOLAR PANELS INCREASE GRASSES FOR SHEEP AND COWS BY 90% It’s all about the benjamins – and it seems solar power is getting better at printing them a little more every single day. Researchers at the Oregon State’s College of Agricultural Sciences, in the recently published Remarkable agrivoltaic influence on soil moisture, micrometeorology and water-use efficiency (.pdf), measured the effects on growth of multiple plants located under solar modules. The analysis found that several key grazing grasses were able to significantly [...]
