What are monocrystalline modules ?

- Sep 22, 2017 -

This is the technology that started the photovoltaic revolution. Originated in the 1950s, monocrystalline solar panels are the oldest and most developed system to date. As the name suggests, they are made from a single crystal of pure silicon. Manufacturers use the Czochralski method to slowly pull a single silicon crystal seed out of melted monocrystalline silicon and form an ingot.  A crystal seed is a small piece of silicone which is used as a base for the molten molecules. By providing the right infrastructure, the molten molecules can connect to form an ingot. While the seed is being drawn up, the temperature is lowered gradually to help form a cylindrical shape.
