The name Poly-crystalline Solar Panels is also directly related to the composition of the silicon used to make the solar cells within the solar panel.
‘Poly’ comes from the Greek word ‘polys’ which means much or many. So poly-crystalline means ‘many crystals’.
At one stage it was thought that mono-crystalline solar panels were superior to poly-crystalline solar panels. But as technologies have advanced and our knowledge within the solar industry has improved, we are discovering that there are many other factors that contribute to an efficient and reliable off grid system. Chat with one of our off grid specialists to discover which solar panels would best suit your going off grid goals and unique circumstances.
