Monocrystalline vs. Polycrystalline: Which Solar Panels Are Right For You

Recommended Posts

Solar cell technology is advancing very fast. Within a few years’ silicon-perovskite cells with a conversion efficiency of 35% may be commercially available.

I would hate to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a monocrystalline installation with only 17% to 22% efficiency, if I can get a silicon-perovskite install with almost double that efficiency in just a few years.

It is the classic problem of “should we buy today’s technology or wait for tomorrow’s”?
