Motorhome and Caravan Solar Panels
We sell both Monocrystalline and polycrystalline Motorhome and Caravan solar panels. Polycrystalline solar panel modules are made from a block of silicon that has multiple crystals. These panels are square in shape, they have a surface that looks like a mosaic. This is because of all the different crystals that make up the module. Different types of solar panels may be smooth and even, this is because they are made up of only silicon crystals. These are called monocrystalline modules. The third type of panel uses a thin film layer of material otherwise known as amorphous.
Polycrystalline solar modules are less efficient than a single crystal. They are much more easier to produce, they also cost far less to manufacture. This makes them much less expensive than the monocrystalline type and also durability and longevity, however, are comparable to monocrystalline panels. Generally, polycrystalline panels have approx 12% conversion efficiency compared to the Mono type. This means twelve percent of the energy in the sunlight that strikes these panels is converted into electricity.
Motorhomefacts.com has a very useful Solar Power Calculator which makes it easier to ascertain power requirements.
