Half-Cut Cell Solar Panels - 120 Cell & 144 Cell Solar Panels
Half-cut cell modules have solar cells that are cut in half, which improves the module’s performance and durability. Traditional 60- and 72-cell panels will have 120 and 144 half-cut cells, respectively. When solar cells are halved, their current is also halved, so resistive losses are lowered and the cells can produce a little more power. Smaller cells experience reduced mechanical stresses, so there is a decreased opportunity for cracking. If the bottom half of a module is shaded, the top half will still perform.
