Advantages of Half-Cell Solar Modules

The worldwide solar market is continuously growing, and new trends are quickly becoming mainstream. Half-cell technology was a revolution in the solar game. According to statistics, there will be an increase of the half-cell solar module market share to 40% by 2028.  To make everything clear, let's discover what it is and find out the benefits it provides.

What is it?

Half-cell solar panels are exactly what their name suggests – traditional solar cells that have been cut in half with a laser cutter. In contrast to the standard modules, which contain 60 or 72 cells, a half-cell module doubles the number of cells to 120 or 144 cells per module. It has the same size as a standard cell module but with half-cut cells. The technology of doubling cells creates more opportunities to grab solar energy from the sunlight and send it in to the inverter.

Advantages of half-cell solar modules

Using half-cut cells in photovoltaic solar panels can increase the solar energy output.
Compared to traditional solar panels, a half-cut solar module provides many benefits. Let’s outline some of the most important.

  • Superior performance

Half-cut cells can help solar modules to perform better by improving efficiency, thereby boosting energy output. They accomplish this in the following ways:

Resistive loss reduction

In conventional solar cells, the electrical current transport causes some power loss during the conversion of sunlight to electricity. Resistive losses are minimized due to the lower current flowing through the solar module.

Improved low-light performance

Shade and low-light conditions have no impact on half-cut cell photovoltaic solar modules, comparing to traditional solar panels. The main reason is a minor variation in the wiring system of half-cell solar modules.
Half-cut solar cells are connected in sequence, much like normal solar cells. They have doubled cells and cell rows. However, if a single row of the module shades, the solar panel loses less power since only a sixth of the total module energy production is affected.

  • Durability

In addition to having a higher energy output, half-cell modules are more reliable due to their long-life performance. They are less sensitive to micro-cracks thanks to their compact design.
With these advantages, property owners who select half-cell modules could see a faster return on investment. They are a far more realistic choice in areas where space is restricted, and shade or low light conditions are an issue.
LA Solar Factory delivers half-cell modules with the most rigorous certifications and the strongest guarantees in the market. We use only the highest quality materials and equipment throughout the production process. Each of produced modules is certified according to international standards and undergoes numerous examinations. Our company guarantees the superior quality of half-cell modules and provides a 25-year warranty for efficiency.

    First Armenian Manufactured All-Black Solar Modules! Soon!

    More and more businesses and private homes in Armenia have been switching to solar energy in recent years. Today, blue polycrystalline solar panels (solar panels types) are the most popular on the local and the world market. It is no secret that when choosing a solar system, preference is given to the efficiency and durability of panels - the more powerful the system, the greater the savings.

    However, sometimes it is also important to take into account the appearance of the solar system. 

    Black and Blue Panels. Main Characteristics

    The relatively affordable price of blue panels is caused by a simpler production process and lower installation costs. In addition, one of the advantages of polycrystalline solar panels is the absence of environmentally harmful waste during production.

    Black solar panels are mostly monocrystalline, rarely thin-film. Unlike polycrystalline solar panels, the price of black panels is higher due to the high quality of silicone used, production process waste and consumption of silicon.

    The outer PV layer and the framing of the monocrystalline panels are entirely black, unlike the "traditional" blue panels, the marked areas of which are white.

    Advantages of Black Solar Panels

    1. Black solar panels are more energy efficient

    Made of single silicon, monocrystalline black panels absorb several times more energy. It turns out that fewer monocrystalline panels are required to generate energy than producing the same amount of energy with polycrystalline panels.

    2. Stable operation in cloudy weather

    Even in cloudy weather, black solar panels do not stop absorbing light, providing a house or a building with constant electricity.

    3. Durability

    Compared with polycrystalline panels, monocrystalline panels are more durable. A number of global manufacturers guarantee 25 years of operation of their panels. LA Solar Factory gives a 25-year guarantee of uninterrupted operation of its products in Armenia.

    Monocrystalline Black Panels in Armenia

    The demand for the solar system in Armenia is growing every day. Solar systems of the world's leading companies are represented on the market.

    Armenian consumers will soon be able to purchase locally produced monocrystalline black panels as well. Being the first local manufacturer of monocrystalline panels in Armenia, LA Solar Factory offers its consumers the most efficient solar panels in the field of solar energy.
