Information about different solar panels Solar Panels - PV or Photovoltaic Panels, Monocrystalline Silicon Cells: Made using cells saw-cut from a single cylindrical crystal of silicon, they are effectively a slice from a crystal. This is the most efficient of the photovoltaic (PV) technologies. Polycrystalline or Multicrystalline Silicon Cells: Made from cells cut from an ingot of melted and recrystallised silicon. Amorphous Silicon: Amorphous silicon cells are composed of silicon atoms in a thin homogenous layer rather than a crystal structure. Amorphous silicon absorbs light more effectively than crystalline silicon, so the cells can be thinner

Solar cell operation solar cells convert light energy into electrical energy either indirectly by first converting it into heat, or through a direct process known as the photovoltaic effect. The most common types of solar cells are based on the photovoltaic effect, which occurs when light falling on a two-layer semiconductor material produces a potential difference, or voltage, between the two layers

Sun path chart program This program creates sun path charts in Cartesian coordinates for: (1) "typical" dates of each month (i.e.; days receiving about the mean amount of solar radiation for a day in the given month); (2) dates spaced about 30 days apart, from one solstice to the next; or (3) a single date you specify. You can select whether hours are plotted using local standard time or solar time
