Everything You Need To Know About Half-Cut Solar Cells

Kartel half-cut solar photovoltaic cells were developed to increase solar panel energy production. Just like the efficiency enhancements observed in bifacial solar panels and PERC solar cells, the integration of half-cut cells into solar panels elevates their power output. 

How Do Half-Cut Cells Work?

Kartel half-cut technology enhances solar panel energy production by reducing cell size, allowing more cells to fit on the panel. By dividing the panel cells in half, each part operates independently, generating more energy even if one part is shaded.

Half-Cut Vs Full Solar Cell

Half-cut cell modules double the number of cells per panel, from 60 to 72 cells in traditional full-cell panels to 120 to 144 cells in half-cut cell modules. This increase in cells enables better energy capture and delivery.

Advantages of Half-Cut Solar Modules:

Kartel half-cut cells offer several advantages over standard solar cells. They outperform and are more durable. Notably, they can increase panel efficiencies by a few percentage points. Additionally, their smaller size makes them more physically robust, reducing the risk of breakage.

  1. Enhanced power production and performance
  2. Greater wattage compared to standard panels
  3. Reduced consequences of hot spots
  4. Decreased internal resistance, minimizes power loss

Are Half-Cut Panels Worth the Investment?

While half-cut cells excel at increasing energy yield, their manufacturing complexity poses challenges for typical producers. It’s crucial to consult with your installer to determine if half-cut cells are the best option for your installation, considering factors such as energy needs and roof characteristics.
