What is the difference between amorphous and crystalline silicon panels?
Amorphous type solar technology uses Silicon in a non-crystalline, random form. It can be deposited onto many different substrates to give effects like flexibility for use in different applications. Amorphous type solar technology falls under the 'thin-film' category of solar modules. Amorphous type solar panels have a typical efficiency of around 6-7%.
Crystalline silicon type solar technology refers to moncrystalline and polycrystalline panels. These panels are created from silicon in a tetrahedral lattice type structure. This structure give crystalline silicon type solar modules a higher efficiency per square meter than amorphous type modules.
