What is Split Cell Solar Technology?

Split-cell modules have solar cells that are cut in half, which improves the module’s performance and durability. Traditional 60- and 72-cell panels will have 120 and 144 split-cut cells, respectively. When solar cells are halved, their current is also halved, so resistive losses are lowered and the cells can produce a little more power. Smaller cells experience reduced mechanical stresses, so there is a decreased opportunity for cracking. Split-cell solar modules have higher output ratings and are more reliable than traditional panels. Today new solar module generation technology has increased the module output of up to 15 watts per module, compared to standard solar modules. Boasting the efficiency of up to 18.0%. Split cell technology is not only cutting the cells into half but also reducing the cost, ensuring a lower LCOE. What's the benefit of a Split Cell Solar Panels? Cost effective Split cell design improves the efficiency of a standard [...]
