|Monocrystalline silicon modules (M-Si module) have been the go-to choice for many years. They are among the oldest, most efficient and most dependable ways to produce electricity from the sun. Each solar module is made from a single silicon crystal, and is more efficient, though a little more expensive, than the newer and cheaper polycrystalline and thin-film PV panel technologies. You can typically recognize them by their color which is typically black or iridescent blue.
Benefits of Monocrystalline Solar Panels
PV panels made from monocrystalline solar cells are able to convert the highest amount of solar energy into electricity of any type of flat solar panel. Consequently, if your goal is to produce the most electricity from a specific area (e.g., on a roof) this type of panel should certainly be considered. Consequently, Monocrystalline panels are a great choice for urban settings or where space is limited. As a developer of PV rooftop installations , buying or leasing roof space is a significant cost of the whole project and so you want to be able to produce as much electricity you can from this valuable resource.
2. More Electricity
Besides producing more electricity per sqm of installed mono solar panels, thereby improving your cash flow (from either a reduction in your electrical bill or from the sale of the electricity or in some areas both), for those who are "going green" and are concerned about the environmental impact of solar panels, monocrystalline panels reduce the amount of electricity needed from local power plants, reducing the dependence on fossil fuels. The greater benefit is a reduction in the use of limited fuel sources and greenhouse gases being pumped into the environment.
