250W Hybrid Solar Panels
250W hybrid solar panels are one option - among many - people choose to use for their homes. Learn what sets them apart from the rest below:
What Is A Hybrid Solar Panel?
A hybrid solar panel uses heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin layer (HIT) technology which means that extremely thin layers of intrinsic and doped amorphous hydrogenated silicon are deposited onto a crystal silicon layer.
Simply put, the marriage between the highly efficient mono-crystalline wafer and the low-light sensitive amorphous layer produces a hybrid solar cell with the ability to generate up to 10% more electricity than a conventional crystalline silicon solar panel. Using state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, modules like the 250w hybrid solar panel are considered industry leaders in solar panel performance.
The Best Of Both Worlds
Noon should be the best time of day for solar power generation. It would be if it wasn't for the fact that the higher temperatures caused by direct sunlight usually prevent solar panels from working at their most efficient and, therefore, reaching the higher output figures hoped for.
At high temperatures the 250w hybrid solar panel can maintain higher efficiency than its conventional counterpart. The inclusion of the amorphous layer also means that more advantage can be taken of the diffused light associated with early morning, evening, overcast and cloudy conditions. Another benefit of this technology is that the losses that usually occur, due to the non-uniformity of the crystal structures present on the surface cell, are significantly reduced.
What Effect Does This Have On Application
Significant increase in the ability to generate power means that the 250w hybrid solar panel can be applied to situations that would usually be deemed less than satisfactory, especially double-sided modules that can generate electricity both sides, making it more viable at any angle.
This can be an effective solution for rooftops that are not facing the more favourable southerly directions. Not having to worry as much about angle or orientation offers effective installation possibilities to flat rooftops and facades, as well as tracking systems.
The ability of the 250w hybrid solar panel to deliver higher output power using fewer cells also helps to solve the problem of smaller roofs and limited spaces. Apart from being more energy efficient significant savings can be made on materials and installation time.
Everything Is Covered For Maximum Efficiency
A cover of anti-reflection glass enables as much incoming light as possible to reach the electrical generating crystalline silicon layer. Combine that with the ability to generate more power and then preserve as much of that generated electricity as possible and it's easy to see why the 250w hybrid solar panel can achieve 20.8% cell efficiency and a module efficiency of up to 18%.
The 250w hybrid solar panel is one of the industry leaders in solar modules, using the unique characteristics of both mono-crystalline and amorphous silicon to produce a super-efficient and versatile module.
