The PV cells capture the energy of the sun and convert it into electricity. The majority of PV modules are comprised of water-based crystalline silicon cells that must be protected from mechanical damage and moisture. Cells are connected electrically in series to a desired voltage and in parallel for increased amperage.
A PV module’s power wattage is the voltage multiplied by the amperage and this specification rating is determined under standard test conditions (STC). It does not necessarily reflect the panel’s true performance in outdoor conditions. PV solar systems can stand alone or be connected to the national electricity grid.
There are two main categories of PV panel options: Monocrystalline solar panels and Polycrystalline solar panels. Monocrystalline cells are made from a single silicon source while Polycrystalline cells are produced by melting together fragments from multiple silicon sources. Monocrystalline PV panels offer higher power generation efficiencies and sleeker aesthetics.
Our range of Rentech PV panels include both Monocrystalline and Polycrystalline cells. Supplying modules various power generation capacities, Rentech ensures that optimal combinations of PV panels and inverters or the specific applications are supplied.
