How Do Solar Photovoltaic Cells Work?
Put simply, solar cells are photovoltaic (PV) cells which is a fancy way of saying it can convert the light from the sun directly into useable electricity. There are typically thirty six solar cells in a series of a solar cell panel. Solar cells can either be poly-crystalline or mono-crystalline, poly meaning many and mono meaning one. Generally speaking, a mono-crystalline solar cell is more efficient by giving off more wattage when the sun hits the cell. As an example, a 100W panel using mono-crystalline solar cells gives off 96W while a poly-crystalline gives off only 93W. The lower wattage is due to losses through wiring and the inverter. The tradeoff for this greater efficiency is that mono-crystalline solar cells tend to be more expensive.
Questions to Ask a Solar Cell Vendor
With so many suppliers of solar photovoltaic cells, how do you know which one you can rely on?
If price is a key consideration, carefully calculate if it is cheaper to simply purchase a pre-built solar panel rather than assembling it from scratch. If thatís the case, browse through Solarblvdís huge selection of quality name-brand solar cell panels. If you are set on buying solar cells, look for solar cells sale opportunities such as the ones we have on Solarblvd.com. Buying solar cells in bulk also saves you money.
Another question to ask a prospective solar cell vendor is how do they package their products. Solar cells are extremely fragile and easily damaged. At Solarblvd, we carefully package each solar cell to ensure protection from the shipping and delivery process.
New Solar Photovoltaic Cells, Used Solar Cell Panels and More
Build your own solar module with our solar cells. All you need is a soldering iron and some wires. These cells are cut with laser precision quality guaranteeing same cell size from one to the next. We sell these these cells in small or large quantities making them an affordable and quality choice for you do-it-yourselfers. An excellent choice for solar panel customization.
Used solar panels are modules that still put out amps and volts that have been pulled down from homes that have no use of them anymore. Why not get a used panel at an affordable price with a good amount of warranty on them?
Broken Panels are solar modules that have usually gotten damaged during shipping. We test out each module to make sure they put out volts and amps. This can be a great experiment for using the module for a short time or replacing the glass from a professional glass manufacturer!
Whether itís competitive pricing or attention to detail, Solarblvd is your best source for solar cells.
