Descriptions of Shingled Solar Modules ETFE Semi-flexible Mono Solar Panels

Shingle Solar Panels

Shingle solar panels have solar cells that are cut into typically 5 or 6 strips.  These strips can be overlaid, like shingles on a roof, to form the electrical connections.  The strips of solar cells are joined together using an electrically conductive adhesive (ECA) that allows for conductivity and flexibility.

The main advantages of solar shingles are their aesthetic appearance, lower currents resulting in potential lower resistive losses, and a higher packing density for photovoltaic modules increasing the efficiency of flexible solar panels.

Shingle technology allows the cells to be connected differently to conventional solar panels, in that, there are no busbars (ribbons) required and the solar cells can be joined together resulting in no gaps between the solar cells.

Shingled solar modules can also be wired differently to conventional solar panels.  Typically, solar cells in conventional solar panels are wired in a series of strings whereas the solar cells in shingled panels can be wired in a parallel configuration.

Advantages of Shingled Solar Panels

1. Increased Energy Harvest

The shingled solar cells do not require busbars across the top of the cells so more of the solar cells are exposed to sunlight.  The cells do not need to be spaced apart like in conventional solar panels so with the same area it can produce more energy.

difference between conventional solar panels and shingle solar panel

Conventional solar panels have the individual cells wired in series so when a part of the solar panel is shaded it can have a significant effect on the level of power output.  By configuring the solar cells in shingles, they can be wired in groups and configured in parallel which significantly reduces the losses caused by shading.

2. More Reliable

Low Busbar Failures

Shingle solar panels do away with approximately 30 meters of the busbar and soldered joints that are required on conventional solar panels, so busbar failures are reduced.  Current Inside the Flexible Solar Panels VS Conventional Mono Solar Panels

Better Mechanical Performance

Static and dynamic load tests show that the shingle approach is more resistant to failure due to external forces being applied to the solar panel compared to conventional solar panels.

3. More Attractive

Shingled solar panels have no visible circuitry which gives them a clean simple look providing superior street appeal. As solar panel technology continues to mature, shingled modules represent the current state-of-the-art in terms of performance, reliability, and aesthetics.
