WHY SHOULD YOU INVEST IN BIFACIAL SOLAR PANELS?

BT Commercial is proud to be at the forefront of sustainable energy practices with the implementation of state-of-the-art bifacial solar panels. By harnessing the power of sunlight from both sides, these panels not only increase our energy efficiency but also demonstrate our commitment to pioneering eco-friendly solutions. This investment in innovative technology reaffirms our position as a leader in photovoltaic systems, dedicated to shaping a more sustainable and resilient future.

Bifacial solar panels represent a revolution in solar energy generation by capturing sunlight from both sides. Unlike conventional panels, they utilize both direct and reflected light to increase efficiency in energy production.

Bifacial vs Monofacial Modules

Bifacial solar panels

Functionality:

Equipped with photovoltaic cells on both sides, these panels capture sunlight from the front and back.

This dual capability significantly enhances their performance, generating more electricity compared to unifacial (one-sided) panels.

Advantages of Bifacial panels:

✓ Higher Efficiency: Capturing light from both sides results in increased energy production.

✓ Less Degradation: Due to having both sides covered with glass, the panels experience less degradation over time compared to monofacial panels.

✓ Versatile Installation: They can be installed in various configurations, such as on reflective surfaces, white roofs, or elevated structures, taking advantage of reflected light.

✓While bifacial panels offer increased efficiency, the higher upfront cost compared to traditional solar panels is a factor to consider. However, the improved performance and longer lifespan may result in a favourable return on investment over the panel’s lifetime.

✓ It takes fewer bifacial panels to generate the same amount of energy as a one-sided panel. So, to obtain the required energy performance, one can use fewer panels.

✓Double-sided solar panels with glass surfacing on both sides are more durable than regular solar panels with glass on only one side. They are less likely to be damaged by extreme weather.

One must remember that the panels cannot be installed flat-mounted, since they need to reflect sunlight from other sources.

Bifacial solar panels are an exciting innovation in solar technology, offering greater efficiency and versatility. Their role is crucial in the transition towards a more sustainable and energy-efficient future.
