Beginner level, Solar panels -

The cells on Solar or Photovoltaic (PV) panels absorb the energy from sunlight. Circuits within the cells collect that energy and turn it into Direct Current (DC) electricity. The price of solar panels has come down dramatically over the last few years. The most important aspects to look for when buying solar panels are:  Is the panel poly or mono–crystalline? Power ratings Efficiency Quality Durability Manufacturer’s assurances Poly or mono–crystalline The most commonly available panels today are either poly-crystalline or mono-crystalline...
