Evaluating the performance of mono- and poly-Si solar PV technologies in Eastern India

Researchers from the SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Ghaziabad, have studied the performance of monocrystalline silicon (mono-Si) and polycrystalline silicon (poly-Si) technologies in the tropical wet region of eastern India. The results showed that the yield outcome with mono-Si PV was around 12% higher and the losses around 32% lower than poly-Si PV.
