Thin Film Solar vs. Crystalline Solar Panels – home applications

2 kinds of solar panels explained by Betsy Ferris Wyman of Sundog Solar. Partial shade affects the performance of Photovoltaic Silicon ingot PV panels. This company specializes in home installation of solar panels in the low-sun environment of the Northeast USA. Thurston Sack and Ernie Tetrault are our hosts in this weekly educational program for public access and cable access stations across the US

    when will the price drop? and how much will the price drop?

    she’s totally wrong on that. it doesn’t matter what the solar cell is made of for shading. it matters how you connect the panels. amorphous won’t do better than crystalline just because it’s amorphous.

    Do you see photo-voltaics on cars? Love it!

    you are correct

    if thin film solar is still less efficient, they should be put on solar thermal water based heat exchanger panels, to use that large percentage of energy not converted!

    …it the thin film amorphous cells can take the higher heat loads without a decrease of performance or deteroation then it might make be feasable to scavnage the heat from the back side of solar heating. Getting the strait facts is no easy task , so speculation is flimsy, as is shamefully true with most comidity these days.
    ~Now what was it bill hicks wisely sugest it would be better if the markateers did ?
