Solar Panel Market in the APAC Region 2015-2019
About Solar Panel
A solar panel (also called a PV module) is a collection of solar cells engraved from silicon wafers that generates electricity by capturing the sunlight. Solar panel systems include solar PV inverters, which connect numerous solar panels to a power grid to ensure improved efficiency and increased reliability in the grid. There are two types of solar cells: crystalline silicon and thin-film. Thin-film cells can be deposited as thin layers that measure less than 1 micron. These cells are less expensive compared to silicon and help manufacturers build solar panels of different sizes and shapes depending on the requirement.
