How Solar Works

  • Thin film

    A solar PV module constructed with sequential layers of thin film semiconductor materials usually only micrometers thick. Currently, thin-film technologies account for around 12 percent of all solar modules sold worldwide. This share is expected to increase, since thin-film technologies represent a potential route to lower costs.

  • Tilt angle

    The angle of inclination of a module measured from the horizontal.
