Technology Explanations


At LUX Solar we only source monocrystalline panels as they offer the highest efficiency. Monocrystalline panels are manufactured from a single rod of silicon thus the crystal structure inside the silicon is uniform, with very few impurities. Polycrystalline panels on the other hand are made up of smaller crystal structures that introduce grain boundaries in each solar cell. This causes inefficiencies in the conduction of electrons due to defects associated with the crystal boundary.
