Also, called solar panels, a solar module is a single photovoltaic panel that is an assembly of connected solar cells. The solar cells absorb sunlight as a source of energy to generate electricity. An array of modules are used to supply power to buildings.
Solar Modules in Details:
A solar module typically consists of assembly of 6x10 solar cells. The solar cells efficiency and wattage output can vary depending on the type and quality of solar cells used. A solar module can range in energy production from 100-365 watts of DC electricity. The higher wattage output, the more energy production per solar module. A solar array of modules consisting of higher energy producing solar modules will, therefore, produce more electricity in less space than an array of lower producing modules. However, the cost is higher for greater producing modules.
