Thin Film Solar Panel:-
Depositing one or several thin layers of photovoltaic material onto a substrate is the basic gist of how thin-film solar cells are manufactured. They are also known as thin-film photovoltaic cells (TFPV). The different types of thin-film solar cells can be categorized by which photovoltaic material is deposited onto the substrate:
Amorphous silicon (a-Si)
Cadmium telluride (CdTe)
Copper indium gallium selenide (CIS/CIGS)
Organic photovoltaic cells (OPC)
Thin Film Panels is the high cost of producing crystalline silicon wafers (which makes up 40-50% of the cost of a finished module) has led many companies to look at less expensive materials, and more economical ways to make solar cells.
Good Performance in Indirect Light
Good Performance in High Heat
Good Performance in Niche Markets
Lower efficiency rates mean you need a physically larger system for the same power output.
Installation costs goes up because you need to install more solar panels.
Thin film solar panels tend to degrade faster.
Silicon costs are declining and silicon-based solar panels (e.g. mono- and polycrystalline) are becoming more affordable
