Bifacial solar modules

Are bifacial solar modules better than traditional solar panels?

Bifacial solar modules are a type of solar panel that has two different types of solar cells, usually one that is silicon and gallium arsenide. The bifacial module allows more light to reach the front side of the solar cell, which helps improve photoelectric conversion efficiency.

These panels are best to collect both direct and diffuse sunlight. These panels are also efficient at locations where other types of panels cannot or will not work well. These benefits make bifacial modules an attractive option for both residential and commercial applications.

Pros and Cons of traditional solar panels:

Traditional solar panels are the most common type of solar panel.  Traditional solar panels have many advantages and disadvantages relative to other types of solar panels. Some advantages include their low cost and easy installation.

Disadvantages include their inability to generate power in areas with strong sunlight, their efficiency at generating power, and their susceptibility to weathering and damage.

Which is better – bifacial solar modules or traditional solar panels?

Traditional solar panels are of old technology and bifacial solar modules are of the latest technology. There are two layers of traditional solar panels: the front layer of cells converts sunlight into electricity, while the back layer holds the board that connects the cells together and provides structural integrity.

Bifacial solar modules also have a second layer of cells, but this second layer has an angled surface that helps direct sunlight onto the cells. The main reason traditional solar panels are still more popular than bifacial solar modules is that traditional solar panels are cheaper to produce and install.


Traditional solar panels are mono-crystalline and have a low energy conversion rate. Two different types of materials in bifacial modules work together to produce a higher output. This technology has many advantages over traditional solar panels.

  • First, bifacial modules have a higher energy conversion rate because they use both the front and back surfaces of the module to generate electricity.
  • Second, bifacial modules are more efficient in collecting sunlight than traditional solar panels because of their inclination towards the sun.
  • Finally, bifacial modules are also efficient in areas with less sunlight because they can create a concentrated beam of light.

How much do bifacial solar modules cost?

Solar energy is becoming more and more popular, but there are a few things people don’t know about solar energy. One of those things is the cost of solar panels. Bifacial solar modules are a newer type of solar panel that has two different types of cells: one that works best in direct sunlight and one that works in indirect sunlight. This means that you can save money by using bifacial solar modules instead of traditional solar panels.

Is installing a bifacial solar module any different than installing a traditional solar panel?

Installation of a solar module is usually pretty straightforward, but there are a few key differences to consider when installing a bifacial solar module. For one, the modules are typically mounted at an angle to the sun’s rays, meaning that you’ll need to account for angle when planning your installation.

Additionally, bifacial modules come with two different types of cells – traditional mono-crystalline silicon and thin-film solar cells – both of which require specific installation precautions. Make sure to consult your installer or SolarEdge Technical Support staff for more information on how to install your bifacial solar module correctly!

Which applications are best suited for bifacial solar modules?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to choosing the right application for bifacial solar. Some factors you may have to consider include latitude, climate, sunlight exposure, electricity demand, and cost.

Some applications that are good candidates for bifacial modules include residential and commercial rooftops in areas with bright sunlight, agricultural fields where there is plenty of sunlight throughout the day, and remote industrial sites that need reliable power in bad weather conditions.

In general, bifacial modules will be best suited to applications that require power when the sun is not shining or are in areas where there is a lot of shade. In other words, bifacial solar modules are ideal for generating power during the day and storing it at night.
