Monocrystalline solar cells consist of a single block of crystalline silicon. They can be recognized by their uniform color and rounded corners. Monocrystalline cells tend to be the most efficient and more efficient at converting sunlight into electricity. They are well suited for smaller systems with limited space.

Half-cells, monocrystalline

Half-cell monocrystalline cells are split in the middle, which allows them to optimize current flow and thereby minimize power loss from shadows. This makes them particularly good for installations that are regularly affected by shade, such as gardens. B. on roofs with chimneys or antennas.

Monocrystalline, bifacial

Bifacial monocrystalline cells can capture light from both the front and back, increasing their efficiency. They are well suited for installations where light from reflective surfaces or snow on the back of the modules can be used.

Half-Cut, Monocrystalline

Half-cut monocrystalline cells are split down the middle, similar to half-cells. This leads to reduced electrical resistance and lower losses. Half-cut technology improves module performance, especially under high temperatures.
