we need new solar panels
and ask if the new type of "Half-Cut-Cell" solar panels
is suitable for mobile use. On board, significantly more mechanical stress is to be expected, whether due to vibrations or in heavy seas. This should be a difference to a solid installation
on a house roof.
Who has experience with the new technology on yachts and boats?
Increased probability of bad contacts or cell-inherent defects
Manufacturing half-cut solar
cell modules means twice the soldered connections, which translates as twice the probability of bad contacts. Halving the solar
cell also increases the probability of causing defective cells which is one of the few downsides to the technology.
Isn't it better to stay with the normal mono cells for maritime use?
Am curious about answers from the experts;-)
