Flexible Solar Panels
In this case ‘thin’ means only a few micro meters, which is a millionth of a meter. Flexible solar panels are typically produced in a roll-to-roll manufacturing process where thin-film amorphous silicon is deposited on thin sheets of stainless steel. The steel allows the item to be durable while also keeping its flexibility. The roll-to-roll process is one of the most efficient ways to produce flexible solar panels and allows higher production rates, making it cheaper for the customers
Flexible solar panels are light and can be installed on non-flat surfaces, such as curved walls. They can also be rolled up, making them easy to transport, and they can be produced in a variety of shapes and sizes.
