There is no doubt that solar panels offer an economic eco-friendly system of converting solar energy to electric energy. Many are making use of these panels for the financial benefits they offer and many more would like to make use of them. There's good news for them who had been waiting all this while for whatever reasons. Now, thin solar panels have been introduced which make it simpler and more affordable to have them for your energy requirements.
Thin panel versus thick panel
It will not be wrong to conclude that one big reason for solar units not getting as popular had been their cost. Their manufacturing cost was high. Whereas thin panels are made from cheaper materials and the cost of production is about one third of the cost of traditional solar panels. Understandably, these are much more affordable.
Thin film assumes that the size of the cell is reduced considering. That affects the weight correspondingly and offers more flexibility. Reduction of size and weight allows them to produce more energy, given the same size. Another positive feature of thin cells is that they do not need massive supporting structure like thick panels. As a matter of fact these can be incorporated within the roof or the wall itself.
And the best thing is that these practical thin panels because of their compact size and low weight are portable, meaning you can conveniently carry them with you wherever you go.
The other good news is that the introduction of thin film solar panels has already caused a drop in the prices of solar systems!
