Early in the solar game, you may have encountered two primary options for a solar panel: the monocrystalline solar panels (otherwise known as mono) and the polycrystalline solar panels (also known as poly). Polycrystalline solar panels are less efficient compared to monocrystalline but offers a lower price. Hence, it was a popular option for those clients with a tight budget. However, times are changing and with the improvements in technology and declining costs of solar, Solaric has phased out Poly panels for good and now offers Monocrystalline solar panels in the Philippines for all its solar system installations.
What Is A Monocrystalline Panel?
Solar panels are made from a conductive material called silicon. The solar cells of a monocrystalline panels are cut from a single silicon source, compared to polycrystalline panels which came from multiple silicon sources, hence the name ‘mono’. Since it uses a single-crystal silicon, the cells are purer and provides more space for the electrons to move. As a result, they have better flow of electricity, making them more efficient than poly panels. They also have less energy loss and can perform better even in higher temperatures which is ideal for our sun-rich and tropical country: the Philippines.
Why Poly Came First
The first reason is the budget and cost. Considered as a premium solar panel, monocrystalline panels boasts higher efficiencies and aesthetics and perfect for clients with limited roof space but this comes with a price. In the past, monocrystalline panels were more expensive compared to polycrystalline, due to the tedious and intricate process in manufacturing them.
Improved Technology and Declining Costs
The years have been good for solar technology as it was able to bring down the costs of producing monocrystalline panels. Currently, monocrystalline panels are now able to match the lower prices of polycrystalline panels, which is why a lot of solar providers, including Solaric, chose to completely phase out the use of poly panels and completely switch to mono. Before, you can get a 1.6kWp grid tie system using polycrystalline panels for Php129,000 – but now, you can get the same system size using monocrystalline panels in the Philippines for as low as Php115,000! Solar is indeed becoming more affordable! With higher efficiency rates, better temperature coefficient, and the gorgeous darker hues, solar has became an instant hit for homeowners and business professionals.
