Things you should know about Solar energy and solar modules

The Sun is the ultimate source of energy in our entire galaxy, let alone our planet. The energy emitted by the sun is not only efficient but is also present in abundance and is supposed not to last for another billion years which makes it a reliable source of energy for our planet. Almost everything in our nature thrives and depends upon the sun and now our energy requirements also depend on the ultimate power source. 


The sun is a big ball of fire that consists of Hydrogen and Helium. The hydrogen atoms are constantly broken into Helium which is called nuclear fusion and hence radiates a huge amount of energy. The energy that we receive from the fireball is called Solar Energy which is a renewable source of energy.

How is the energy of the sun extracted and made available for our own use? 


Solar energy is the energy that is extracted from the sun’s rays falling into the earth’s atmosphere which is then synthesized and used to generate electricity for general use. The energy is trapped, stored, and synthesized in what we call solar panels or modules and it is from these modules that solar power is made available for our use. Solar modules or panels are further made up of solar cells. 


These cells are capable of producing very limited amounts of energy and hence multiple cells are combined to make a solar panel that can further produce high amounts of energy.  Solar cells are made up of a constituent element which is Silicon which makes it a major component in solar cell manufacturing which is also why these modules are somewhat expensive. 


Let’s have a look at the different types of solar panels we have at our disposal 


There are three major types of solar panels that are used for extracting solar energy, these are monocrystalline solar panels, polycrystalline solar panels, passive emitter and rear cell panels (PERC), and thin-film solar panels


As the names suggest the first three panels are made up of cells that are made up of crystals of Silicon which adds to their efficiency based upon the panel you pick, the thin-film solar panels however are made up of different materials like Cadmium telluride, Amorphous silicon, and Copper indium gallium selenide.


More than 80% of Indian households equipped with solar panels are equipped with Monocrystalline solar panels. This is why solar module manufacturing in India is focused mostly on monocrystalline cells. There are many firms available at your disposal which manufacture different types of solar panels based on the demands and requirements of their clients.


Among all the manufacturers in the industry, Premier Energies is the one name you very often come across which is because of their work ethics and values. Premier Energies is committed to providing you with the best experience possible in using solar energy and they also lay emphasis on environmental conservation. Summing it all up Premier Energies is the one firm suitable for your energy requirements.
