When it comes down to installing solar panels, the goal is always to design your system to generate as much solar energy as possible. The technology used in solar panels has come a long way. One particularly exciting technology development, is bifacial solar panels. Despite bifacial modules being around since the 1960’s, through the development of PERC (passivated emitter rear cell) technology they have since become a disruptor in the solar PV market. So what are bifacial solar panels and why are they worth considering? Read on to find out!
What are Bifacial Solar Panels?
So what is a Monofacial Solar Panel?
The majority of solar panels that we install across the UK are monofacial panels. A monofacial module, unlike a bifacial module, can only generate energy from the front of the solar panels.

How much more energy can bifacial solar panels generate?
Pros & Cons of Bifacial Solar Panels
Bifacial solar panels are becoming increasingly popular, gaining attention due to both their affordability and efficiency. More homes and businesses are choosing to install bifacial over monofacial panels to reap the rewards, but do the advantages truly outweigh the disadvantages?
