The Problem with Silicon Wiring in Solar PV Cells
“How does silicon wiring harm solar PV Cells?”
Silicon wiring is needed for the electrons produced in solar PV cells to move around. However, the wires on the front of the solar cells cover 5-10% of the surface and reflect incoming light, thereby lowering the efficiency. As a result, there are many Problems with Silicon Wiring in Solar PV Cells.
