Solar Panel Installations

Geo Green Power offers two main types of solar panel for our installations: monocrystalline solar cells and polycrystalline solar cells. The type of panel used is a key component of your solar photovoltaic (PV) installation, and while the two look very similar there some important differences between them. If you are interested in learning which kind of solar panel might be best for you, please do not hesitate to contact us today for more details from our highly experienced staff.

Monocrystalline solar panels

Monocrystalline (or mono) solar panels are made from thin silicon wafers, which are cut into a recognisable cylindrical shape, taken from artificially-grown crystals. Each wafer is made from a single crystal which means that they are more expensive to make, but they typically offer the highest efficiency rates of all solar PV panels. Efficiency rates for this type of panel are usually between 15 and 24%.

They may also have benefits including a longer lifespan than other kinds of panel and being more space-efficient as they yield the highest amount of power, meaning you will require fewer of them for the same output.

Polycrystalline solar panels

Polycrystalline (or poly) solar panels are also made from silicon wafers from artificially-grown crystals, but rather than being taken from a single source they are made using many interlocking crystals. Visually they are distinguishable from mono panels as they are cut in rectangular shapes. This type of solar panel is cheaper but typically offers slightly lower efficiency: around 13 to 18%.
