Types of solar panels: which one is the best choice?


Although there are tons of different solar panels that exist, most will fit into one of these three types:

  • Monocrystalline solar panels
  • Polycrystalline solar panels
  • Thin film solar panels

Each type has a distinct set of features that makes them better suited for certain solar projects. Let’s take a closer look at each.

Monocrystalline solar panels are the most common for residential solar installations.

Polycrystalline solar panels are popular for designing a solar system on a budget. 

Though an innovative technology, thin film solar panels aren’t the best option for home solar.
