Solar Panel Price In India
Solar Panels are the source of energy which capture energy from the sun and turn it into electricity. Solar panel price or cost anywhere between Rs 22 per watt to Rs 35 per watt depending on the quantity. Generally, types of solar panels are Monocrystalline solar panel, Polycrystalline solar panel and Thin-film solar panels. Each type of solar panels has its own unique advantages and disadvantages.

Monocrystalline Solar Panel
Monocrystalline solar panels solar cells are made from a single crystal of silicon. Monocrystalline solar panels are generally thought as a premium solar product. The main advantages of monocrystalline solar panels are higher efficient. In monocrystalline solar panels, silicon is formed into bars and cut into wafers, as we know the cell is composed of a single crystal, so electrons that generate a flow of electricity have more room to move.
Advantages of Monocrystalline solar panel
- Monocrystalline solar panels have the highest efficiency as comparison to other types of solar panels.
- Monocrystalline solar panels convert more than 22% of sunlight into electricity.
- Monocrystalline solar panels are space-efficient, they also occupy the less amount of space compared to any other types of solar panels.
- Monocrystalline solar panels have a long lifespan of 25 year warranty.
- Monocrystalline solar panels are temperature co-efficient.
Disadvantages of Monocrystalline solar panel
- Monocrystalline solar panels are the most expensive. But most of the manufacturers making monocrystalline solar panels targeting the premium end of the market.
Polycrystalline Solar Panel
Polycrystalline solar panels have solar cells which made from many silicon fragments that are melted together in a mold before being cut into wafers. Polycrystalline solar panels were previously thought to be inferior as comparison to monocrystalline solar panel because they are slightly less efficient, however, because of the cheaper method by which they are made of coupled with only slightly lower efficiencies they have become the dominant technology in solar panels market.
Advantages of Polycrystalline solar panel
- The process used to make polycrystalline solar panel is simpler and less cost.
- In polycrystalline solar panel the amount of waste silicon is less compared to monocrystalline solar panel.
- Polycrystalline solar panels tend to have slightly lower heat tolerance as other types of solar panels.
- Polycrystalline solar panels will tend to have a higher temperature co-efficient as comparison to other than solar modules made with mono cells. This means that as heat increased output of polycrystalline solar panels cell will fall less. However, in practically these differences are very minor.
Disadvantages of Polycrystalline solar panel
- Polycrystalline solar panels cover a larger surface to output the same electrical power as monocrystalline solar panel produces.
- The efficiency of polycrystalline solar panels is typically 15-18%. Because of lower silicon purity, polycrystalline solar panels are not efficient as comparison to monocrystalline solar panels.
- Polycrystalline solar panels have Lower space-efficiency.
Thin Film Solar Panel
Thin film solar panels are a totally different technology as comparison to Monocrystalline solar panels and Polycrystalline solar panels. A thin film solar panel can be identified as a solid black appearance, if the solar panels have no frame it is a thin film solar panel.
Advantages of Thin Film solar panel
- Thin Film solar panels are cheaper to manufacture as comparison to crystalline-based solar panels.
- Thin Film solar panels can be made flexible, which opens for many new potential applications.
- In Thin Film solar panel high temperatures and shading have less impact on solar panel performance.
Disadvantages of Thin Film solar panel
- The efficiency of polycrystalline solar panels is typically 08-14%.
- Thin-film solar panels are in general not very useful for in most residential situations because they require a lot of space.
- Crystalline solar panels produce up to four times more output as thin-film solar panels for the same amount of space.
- Thin-film solar panels tend to degrade faster than crystalline solar panel that is why they typically come with a shorter warranty.
