Q
Which Are the Most Efficient Solar Panels?
A
There are three types of solar panels and they differ in efficiency and price. Monocrystalline solar panels are the most efficient. Some models can convert 25 per cent of the sunlight they receive into electricity. Polycrystalline solar panels are second in efficiency and some models can reach up to 20 per cent. Thin-film solar panels have the lowest efficiency (around 10 per cent) but are also the least expensive panels.
