BIFACIAL SOLAR MODULE
Bifacial solar panels work just like normal solar panels. There is a potion of sunlight that is directly absorbed by the solar cells and converted into electricity. Along with a portion of sunlight that is trapped inside the glass that bounces around until it is absorbed by a solar cell. And finally there is a portion of light which passes right through. However this is where bifacial panels and monofacial panels are different. In a bifacial panel this loss light then has a chance to be reabsorbed by the panel. In this instance, where the light passes right through and collides with a highly reflective surface, this then bounces back towards the panels, to be converted into solar energy. As a result of exposing both sides of the solar cells to sunlight, bifacial solar panels are capable of generating more solar energy.
CAN YOU USE BIFIACIAL PANELS ON A ROOF?
Bifacial solar panels work best when they lie around four metres from the ground. This is because the higher up the panel sits, the more light is able to get underneath them. For this reason bifacial solar panels are unlikely to suit a residential setting, but work well in solar farms, off-grid systems, or commercially.
