Top 10 solar systems on the market
Photovoltaic cells, or solar cells, as they are commonly called, have come a long way since their inception in 1941. Solar cells of the early days had an efficiency of around 2%. It was Les Hoffman, CEO of Hoffman Electronics Corporation, who initially increased efficiency to 14 percent.
The efficiency of a solar cell refers to the ability of cells to transform incoming solar radiation into electric current. According to the solar technology news, the continuous research and development of solar technology has led to a new world record in efficiency levels: 44.7% is the highest efficiency level ever achieved by a solar cell at the experimental stage, and the credit for this goes to the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems.
Installing a solar panel for residential and commercial purposes has become quite affordable – and this article introduces you to the 10 best solar systems on the market.
