24 Mar The Benefits of Bifacial Solar Panel Installation
The solar industry not only looks to create new innovative ways to utilize the power of the sun’s rays but also aims to improve existing technology to become more efficient to solar customers. When a company is able to improve the outputs of an existing technology, it allows for that product to become more efficient for users and be offered at a lower price in some cases. Sol-Up offers bifacial solar panels that contain the ability to produce up to 20 percent more electricity than traditional solar panels.
Bifacial PV modules have the unique ability to produce electricity from direct sunlight exposure, as well as reflective light that has passed through the panels. When the sun shines onto the panels, light passes through the panels due to the glass surfaces. Instead of the traditional opaque backsheet, our glass frame allows sunlight into the back of the panels.
One benefit that bifacial solar panels has over other installation panels is the position of the arrays. Instead of having to be in the typical, south facing directions to generate the ideal outpout, bifacial solar panels have the ability to be installed vertically in an east to west direction. This essentially allows the bifacial solar panels to have two peak production times. The first peak is in the morning and the second one presents itself again in the afternoon. This is capable because bifacial panels allow for electricity to be produced from both sides of the panels optimizing the time of the sun in the east when it rises and the west when it begins to set.
Sol-Up aims to lead the way for solar energy in Las Vegas and the state of Nevada. We have a mission to make Las Vegas the solar capital of the world. For more information on how you can go solar today, visit our website or call us at 702-586-9800.
