What is the most efficient type of solar panel, mono or poly solar power?

    Mono is more efficient.  Efficiency is defined as the ratio of power output to power input, therefore if a panel has 10% efficiency, 1000 watts of sunlight energy is converted to 100 watts of power.

    Monocrystalline solar panels are not only the most efficient (up to 20%) but also the smallest solar panels, and most expensive for these two reasons.

    Polycrystalline panels work at around 12% efficiency.  However improvements are being made and the panels are becoming smaller in size, closer to mono, as well as increasing in efficiency.
