What are we using thin film solar technology for?



  1. 0 Votes

    Thin film solar cells are used for much the same things that conventional crystalline silicon solar cells are used for, namely converting solar energy into electricity.  As the name would suggest, the advantage of thin film solar cells is that they are thinner, which means they’re also lighter, more flexible, and less expensive.  These qualities make them ideal for use in low-powered electronics (they’ve been used in batteries for years), solar-powered vehicles, and homes with oddly shaped roof or other structural concerns.  At the moment, thin film solar cells occupy a relatively small percentage of the solar energy market, but as the technology improves and gains popularity, that may change.
