Solar energy: what you need to know

What makes a solar photovoltaic (PV) system so valuable? Simple – production. High-quality production is the most valuable investment.

How to get the maximum efficiency of the solar system?

Our experienced engineers recommend paying attention to the following factors:

  • Location/climate
  • The weather
  • Azimuth angle of the solar system
  • Shadows and other obstacles
  • The size and efficiency of the solar panel
  • Annual degradation of the solar system

In today's manufacturing environment, change has become a constant. Modern systems need to adapt quickly to markets, technologies, and current requirements. This field is undergoing enormous changes,that are connected with the automation of production, process control, and the rapid development of information technologies.

Variant-oriented assembly systems have been developed to achieve more flexibility and adaptability to increase product variants and scaling production.

A question can occur why to invest in such a dynamically growing market. Here a lot of R&D investment is taking place, and the manufacturing equipment is becoming old daily. The answer is simple: our manufacturing techniques are made adaptable to changes. Solar cell and panel manufacturing systems have more than ten different parts which produce solar cells by doing their work in sequence. In other words, short-term and mid-term innovations can take place on one part of the equipment, and the manufacturing business can easily change this old part with the new innovative part without replacing the whole technology.

We secured ourselves, and we are ready to take any challenge of technological innovations. Our customers can be sure that we will always provide high-quality service and modules of the last generation.

    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.

    Which type of solar panel is best for industrial use?

    The solar panel is the main component of the overall solar photovoltaic system. Being the main part of the developing sector, the companies producing solar panels must meet all international standards and quality requirements. There are a number of companies engaged in the field in Armenia. Solara company was able to position itself in the market by offering the best products to its customers and clients. The company undertakes the design, installation, and warranty service of the solar plant, followed by 24/7 monitoring. Use solar panels for sales and contact us.

    And so: What is a solar panel and what are the advantages?

    Solar panels have already entered the lives of people living in a rapidly changing world. They have become an integral part of both people's homes and businesses, which allows first of all to zero out the significant part of household electricity costs. In addition to high efficiency and power, they are produced with a beautiful design.

    Before making calculations, it is necessary to have answers to several questions first, for example, how much is the house's electricity consumption from the beginning, in which solar zone is the house or your building located, such as the position and slope of the roof. By the way, solar photovoltaic panels show maximum productivity if they are tilted to the south. In order to get the power needed by the customer, you have to think of the right engineering solution or build pillars so that the panels are tilted to the south.

    Most Efficient Solar Panels

    What are monocrystalline solar panels?

    You may be offered different solar panels. Thus, you will be faced with a choice and will need professional advice. Monocrystalline or polycrystalline solar panels? Let's start with the first one.

    Monocrystalline solar panels have a longer service life (usually manufacturers offer a warranty of up to 25 years). They are made from a single crystal of silicon, which is why they are called monocrystalline. If it is installed correctly, the productivity is higher than that of the polycrystalline panel.

    Polycrystalline solar panels

    Many have also heard about polycrystalline panels. Polycrystalline solar panels are made from small pieces of silicon crystals, scraps. Thanks to them, environmental pollution is minimized. That's all to have an approximate idea, and experienced specialists in the field can tell about its technical use.

    Monocrystalline Solar Panels

    The difference between monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar panels

    A monocrystalline panel has higher productivity in direct sunlight, and a polycrystalline panel has more stable productivity due to the distribution of crystals. The polycrystalline panel is better able to generate electricity in low light conditions.

    What are the types of solar panels & batteries?

    So, we already talked about solar panels above. If we generalize, we distinguish several main types of solar panels: monocrystalline, polycrystalline, PERC, thin film panels and, according to professional evaluations, another type - shingled solar panels. In particular, shingled solar panels have a fairly high productivity in the shade. It is their main advantage.

    There are lithium-ion, lithium-polymer, nickel-cadmium, gel, and graphene batteries. These are the main types of batteries. If the panels are to be used to generate electricity, batteries, inverters and other charge controllers will be needed. Let's talk about the most important features of batteries. They are certainly cost-effective. The energy obtained from solar panels can be stored in batteries and used when there is no sunlight.

    Polycrystalline Solar Panels

    The most efficient solar panels & battery

    The lithium-ion battery is one of the most popular and efficiently used batteries because its charge and discharge cycle is incomparably large, it is small in size, it has a large capacity, and it is flexible in terms of parameters. The battery is designed to store energy, even in places where there is no electricity at all. You can find more information about solar panel production on our website. 

    So, summarizing the main functions of solar panels, let's highlight one more. Monocrystalline, polycrystalline, and shingled types of solar panels are mostly used in the industry. The main industrial advantage of the solar plant is that no additional space is required, as in the case of CHPs. The plant assembled with solar panels significantly saves the money spent on electricity, and is an ecologically clean and renewable natural resource source.
