What is the difference between Monocrystalline and Polycrystalline solar cells? And what’s the Sunpower?
- There is a difference in the manufacturing technique, and as a result Monocrystalline cells are more efficient. The monocrystalline cells can produce more power in a smaller space. Also, monocrystalline panels have a darker blue color, almost appearing black, and are usually higher in price due to the increased efficiency. Polycrystalline panels on the other hand are less efficient and require more space.
- However, the difference is size and efficiency do not impact power. A 100 Watt monocrystalline panel and a 100 Watt polycrystalline panel will both output 100 Watts, the difference is that the polycrystalline solar panel surface size will be more bigger.
- The Sunpower is brand of solar cell, which made in USA, it’s monocrystalline too, but more higher efficiency and flexible.
Of cause, All ECEEN solar products used the Sunpower brand solar cells. It’s more efficiency, smaller, lightweight flexible and portable for outdoor sporter!
