The difference between the two types of solar panels

In: Engineering

What two types are you talking about? There are many ways to classify solar panels.

There’s several technologies used to generate electricity in solar panels. To be complete “types” would include solar water heating, but I’ll ignore it. Then there are crystalline silicon cells (both mono- and multi- crystalline). They are the majority of cells in use now. The future lies in thin film solar cells which can be flexible and lower cost. They can use materials other than silicon.
