Monocrystalline Solar Panels
Our professional grade monocrystalline solar panels are the most efficient on today's market for off-grid use. As a result, monocrystalline solar panels are the PV panel of choice in mainland Europe for caravans, motorhomes and many marine and remote power uses. The 'heart' of the panels, the monocrystalline solar cells are manufactured in the US by Sunpower Corp. in an advanced factory, where the highly automated process produces incredibly repeatable cells for the solar panels.
Due to the ultra-high efficiency of our solar cells (21.5%), our monocrystalline solar panels are 30-50% smaller than cheaper models and are far less affected by changes in ambient temperature and sunlight intensity. The solar cells are uniquely connected together at the back; not the front in the same way as standard solar panels. Not only does this increase the visible surface area of the solar cells, it also makes the front more aesthetically pleasing (no silver wires). In addition, a unique backing material reflects unused light back into the solar cell, increasing energy production even further, while extra thick front glass and a superior panel frame result in a robust, durable solar panel.
