Solar modules - photovoltaic panels

The most important components in solar modules or photovoltaic panels are solar cells. The solar module containing the solar cells are involved with other materials to make a performing unit.


The coalescence of single solar cells to solar modules rsp. the embedding of the photo-electrical thin-film into a combination of further materials protects the solar module from mechanical impact, moisture and influences of weather such as wind, snow and hail.

It facilitates the handling and gives ways of attachment at the same time.


Solar modules or photvoltaic panels are divided into two major groups:
