“How can we make the fabrication process for solar panels less expensive?”
Although monocrystalline solar panels are very useful devices, they might be too costly for an engineering team’s budget. So how can we create a less expensive fabrication process for solar panels? Well, let’s use our engineering mindset to think about it. Much of the expense of monocrystalline solar panels comes from the waste generation during the ingot creation process, so wouldn’t it be logical to change this aspect? Specifically, instead of crystallizing the silicon, we pour it into a square cast to let it cool down? This is the fundamental idea behind the creation of polycrystalline solar panels. As a result of this manufacturing process, not only do these solar panels tend to have a flat, matte dark blue look to them, but they also happen to be cheaper than monocrystalline solar panels but simultaneously less efficient
