Suntech Solar panels setting the market standards
In addition to being the most affordable solar panels in the world, its silicon cells have a high conversion rate and can achieve up to 14.9% efficiency. This is typically 2 to 5% more than several panels available in the market. These panels can function even when there is limited sunlight. It uses an edge-isolation technology that allows it to maximise on the sunlight accessible to it. It has a higher output compared to most brands because it uses a light-induced degradation phenomenon. All users of these panels enjoy reduced monthly electricity bills.
