From raw silicon to electricity - how the panels are made

Silicon is the second most abundant mineral in the earths crust. It is usually found combined with other elements and must be dug out of the ground and processed to make hig grade pure silicon.

silicon

This material is used to grow the monocrystaline or polycrystaline ingots, as shown below.

ingots

These are sliced into very thin wafers of silicon semiconductor. Doping of the semiconductor with imputirities will give the silicon wafers positive or negative electrical attributes necessary to make the cells.

wafer

When layered together to form a p-n junction the cell will convert light into electricity. Finished cells have distinctive patterning from the electrical contact strips laid over them. They are set in ethyline vinyl acetate(EVA).

hand cell

The individual cells are connected together in series and in parallel and then set in EVA laminate to completely encapsulate the matrix of cells. This is further set within a frame and protected with toughened glass and waterproof backsheet. The panels also have junction boxes with positive and negative leads.

solar panel layers

The finished panel is designed to withstand the elements and still perform at 80% of it's original output even after 25 years.
