Product Review: Flexible Solar Panels

Anybody who wants a DO IT YOURSELF Solar project should be considering flexible solar energy. This is a product or service review of one type of flexible -panel. These are simply perfect for the person that has some knowledge of green power and has a plan. 100 watt flexible solar panel

These panels have following features:

* Practically unbreakable due to no glass

* Encapsulated in UV-stabilized polymers, includes AVOI and the fluoropolymer ETFE

* Easy peel & stick application with microbes inhibitor 

* Bypass diodes are linked across each cell

* Shadow & high heat tolerant

5. Temperature and low light performance

* Quick-connect ports

They come in a number of watts and they have different physical dimensions. Intended for example, the 124 Voltage panels is Length: 5486 mm (216″)x Width: 394 mm (15. 5″)x Interesting depth: 4 mm (0. 2″), 16 mm (0. 6″) including potted terminal casing assembly Actual Weight: 19 lbs.

These flexible sun panels are designed to work in temperature and low light yet still deliver on energy. They will have quick-connect terminals and adhesive backing with get around Diodes for shadow patience. The adhesive is an Ethylene propylene copolymer cement adhesive sealant with microbial inhibitor. As you can see below under application conditions, these items have been approved for substrates that include certain membrane and steel roofing products.

Flexible solar panels work on the same guidelines as a framed pv cell. A unique manufacturing process that is referred to as “thin film deposition” causes them to be flexible. These kinds of panels are a part of silicon put on a thin film panel that is merely micrometers thick. In this way, when it is applied to a roof or similar substrate the si will flex or bend over.
