Small solar products are physically smaller and produce much less electricity than traditional solar panels. As such, they are most often used in off-grid or portable energy applications. Most manufacturers who produce traditional solar panels do not also produce panels of smaller sizes.
A solar panel, also know as a PV panel or module, is a device that collect sunlight and converts it into electric current.
RV solar panels work just like residential and commercial solar panels except on a smaller, more transportable scale. Once they're installed on your RV, motorhome or camper, solar panels collect sunlight and convert it into usable electricity for your vehicle.
Flexible solar panels belong to a family of solar products called “thin film panels.” Flexible panels are constructed with silicon layers over 300 times smaller than those of standard solar panels, allowing them to be flexed and still retain their functionality.
A bifacial solar panel is a double-sided energy factory that transforms sunlight into electrical energy on both its top and bottom sides.
DIY solar panels can make for a fun project and a functional feature for your home, offering additional electricity from a renewable energy source.
Portable solar panels are small sized solar panels that are easy to install and that can be carried anywhere. Just like a typical solar panel, they convert sunlight into electricity or heat. They contain an assembly of photovoltaic cells.
Solar shingles, also called photovoltaic shingles, are solar panels designed to look like and function as conventional roofing materials, such as asphalt shingle or slate, while also producing electricity. Solar shingles are a type of solar energy solution known as building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV).
