Solar panels are structures that convert the energy from the sun into electrical energy and mostly consist of silicon. Most manufacturers produce both monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar panels. The main difference in these two types of solar panels is the type of solar cell they use. Monocrystalline solar panels have cells composed of a single silicon crystal. Polycrystalline solar panels, on the other hand, have cells formed by combining multiple silicone parts. Monocrystalline panels are more efficient compared to polycrystalline. While monocrystalline panels have an average efficiency of 26%, this rate drops to 19% in polycrystalline panels.

Polycrystalline solar panels have been preferred in approximately 92% of the solar power plants installed in Turkey as of 2021, due to their easy production and low cost. However, in places where limited space needs to be used more efficiently (on roofs, vehicles, lighting units, etc.), monocrystalline panels should be preferred in terms of efficiency.

Let's talk about the exterior, Monocrystalline panels are usually black, while polycrystalline panels are usually blue. Polycrystalline panels have larger dimensions because of their low efficiency at the same power. In terms of efficiency, monocrystalline panels are used in our solar lighting products.
