How Solar Panels Are Made?

We all know by now, that a solar panel is a device that absorbs sunlight and converts this energy into usable electricity. As the price of a solar panel goes down and efficiencies improve, it is attracting masses all over the world to go off the grid. Once you incur the cost of a solar system and its installation, you can practically generate free electricity over the next 25-30 years. But how is this solar panel made, what materials are involved, how different parts are put together to result in a device that is capable of providing you with free electricity?



Are you curious about how a solar panel is made? What processes are involved to get to the final product? Well, for all those who are seeking answers to these questions, you have come to the perfect place. Today we are going to take you inside Loom Solar’s factory at Sonipat, Haryana, where we meet Mr. Anoop - Engineer, who will take us through all these processes in a step by step manner. There are a total of 20-25 machines which involves about 18 steps to finally make a complete solar panel. So let’s see how a solar panel is made. These steps are other than the Incoming Quality Check (IQC) and Final Quality Assurance (FQA).

Step 1: Cell Cutting


Solar Cell cutting process in manufacturing plant


Using a laser cutting machine, cells are cut out. Depending upon the wattage of the panels you want, the size of a cell is determined. For a full cell size modules, this process is skipped.

Step 2: Stringing Process


Solar Stringing process in manufacturing plant


It is a fully automated process. Here at Loom Solar, we are using any cell of size greater than 39 mm. These cells are then assembled or soldered together. The upper Sun facing Side (Blue / Black side) is the negative part while the bottom white side is positive.

Step 3: Solar Glass


Solar Glass process in manufacturing plant


Once the cells are stringed together, the machine transfers it to tempered glass, which already having ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) encapsulation layer over it.

Step 4: Visual Inspection


Solar Visual Inspection process in manufacturing plant


The cells are examined by a technician for any fault or error in any string.

Step 5: Taping


Solar Taping process in manufacturing plant


In taping, a technician tapes the cells into a matrix alignment.

Step 6: Connection


Solar Connection process in manufacturing plant


Connections are then soldered together. Any excess material is cut out.

Step 7: Insulate Module Connection


Solar Insulate Model Connection in manufacturing plant


The next step consists of insulating the connections by using a back sheet and EVA encapsulation. This process protects the module from any dust and moisture.

Step 8: Mirror Observation


Solar Mirror Observation process in manufacturing plant


The module is visually checked once again for any dust particle, colour mismatch, etc.

Step 9: EI Testing


Solar EL Testing process in manufacturing plant


EI Testing or Electroluminescence test is the real testing of the module made so far. It is a testing process, where the module is kind of scanned in an EI machine. We can easily spot any dead or low power cell, short circuit cells, cracks, etc. If any such error is spotted, the module is sent back for fixing the error.

Step 10: Lamination Process


Solar Lamination process in manufacturing plant


The module is laminated at 140-degree Celsius. This process takes approximately 20 minutes. After lamination, the modules are left for 10-15 minutes to cool down till it reaches room temperature.

Step 11: Trimming Backsheet


Solar Trimming Backsheet process in manufacturing plant


This step involves cutting off the excess material of the back sheet to make perfectly shaped modules.

Step 12: Frame Cutting


Solar Frame Cutting process in manufacturing plant


In this step, frames of different sizes are cut out for bordering the panels.

Step 13: Frame Punching


Solar Frame Punching process in manufacturing plant


Then holes are punched in the frames for the purpose of mounting and grounding the panels.

Step 14: Sealant Filling / Framing


Sealent Filling


A sealant protects the panels from air, dust, and moisture and helps the module to firmly attach on the frame. After the frame is attached to the module it is again sent to the framing machine, where it is punched to make sure it is permanently attached to the frame.

Step 15: Fixing Junction box


Solar Fixing Junction Box process in manufacturing plant


A junction box is attached to the module using the sealant to firmly attach it to the structure. Connections are then soldered and left for 10-12 hours for curing, so that the structures are perfectly dry and attached properly.

Step 16: Clean Module


Solar Clean Module process in manufacturing plant


The module is then wiped outside to remove any traces of dust, foreign particles or extra sealant.

Step 17: Module Testing


Solar Module Testing process in manufacturing plant


The module is connected to check its output current, voltage, power, etc. A report is generated for each module’s output data. A back label (with all details) is pasted behind the module for the benefit of the users. Finally, the module is sent to the QC lab where it is tested for insulation resistance. A 3000 V DC is passed through it for a minute. If the panel can endure the current, it is passed else failed. Then it is sent to Mechanical Load Test.


Step 18: Packing


Solar Packing process in manufacturing plant


After Final Quality Assurance (FQA), this is the last step in the module manufacturing process, where the modules are safely packed into large boxes for transportation and storage.

I’m Angel Castor from the US. White Caucasian Female. I’m 43 years old and I got married at the age of 25, I have only two children and I am living happily.

After five years of marriage my husband’s behavior became so strange that I didn’t really understand what was going on. He packed out of the house to another woman’s house and I love him so much that I
never dream of losing him, I tried my best to make sure that my husband got back to me but all to no avail, I cried and cried seeking help. I discussed it with my best friend Alison and she told me she can help me. She told me of a man called Dr. Odunga, she told me he is a very great man and a real man that can be trusted and there is nothing concerning love and Pregnancy issues he cannot solve and she told me how he has helped her and countless number of people in

restoring their relationship. I quickly contacted his email address at I explained all my problems to him, he told me that I should not worry that all my problems will be fine. Presently, I am very happy I got my husband back to me with the help of Dr. Odunga and we are living happily with so much love for each other. What-app message/call him at +2348167159012 to help you

I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him

I am from Papua New Guinea and very much interested in solar panel manufacturing as the country is now considering the use of off-grid solar power systems for rural electrification where 85% of the population live without electricity. What is the possibility of setting up solar panel manufacturing in my country?



I want to know how much power your company consumes in kw for making 1kw producing solar panel.

I wanted to know if for making 1kw generating solar panel total amount of energy needed is less or more than 1kw. Please give me real value..


Have any plan to commission factory in chennai



Awesome post ! You given the best explanation about solar panels . Thanks for shared it with us.



Do u have set up to erect the full solar on grid system in a village for capacity of about 5kw ? What will be approx cost ?
