Half Cell (half cut)

What are Half Cell Solar Panels?

Half Cell solar modules are solar panels that are made from laser-cut solar cells into half this increase the total voltage it can output from a solar panel & at the same time decreases the current output making it easier to transfer more power with the same cable size. Moreover, Half Cell Solar Panels are slightly more efficient than other types of solar panels making them used in several different applications that require higher efficiency than traditional solar panels. On the other hand, Half Cell Solar Panels will not suffer from cracks like single-cell solar panels because the area of Half Cell is smaller which makes it unlikely to have cracks.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of Half Cell Solar Panels?


  • 1-Power Loss: Half Cell solar panels have lower power loss than other types of solar panels if it’s shaded or light doesn’t reach a couple of them won’t have the same effect as a single cell.
  • 2-Electrical resistance: Half Cell solar panels have less electric resistance as it has half the current produced from a single solar cell. Which causes less electrical resistance that causes losses in the thin wires in the solar cells.


  • 1-Cost: Half Cell solar panels are more expensive than the other solar panel types. However, that doesn’t affect their market penetration a bit so due to the adoption of large manufacturers of this type of technology.
  • 2- cutting process: Half Cell solar panels can be damaged while in the cutting process which can cause permanent damage to the solar cell & affect the solar panel’s total efficiency.

What are the use cases of Half Cell Solar Panels?

  • 1-Rooftops: Half Cell solar panels are used on a lot of new household installations as they are one of the last technologies & one of the most efficient solar panels.
  • 2- Solar farms: Half Cell solar panels are used in large solar farms as they are very efficient & occupy less space unlike other types of solar panels that occupy more space & produce less power which result in more cost for the solar farm.
