- 11-22% efficient
- Long life
- Made from single silicon crystals
- Works well in any conditions
POLY-CRYSTALLINE8-15% efficient Made from multi-crystal silicon Looks like fish scales or shattered glass Simpler manufacturing process
- 5-6% efficient
- Old technology
- Weak: break easily
- Nice looking
- Work well in shady conditions
