Introducing the shingling technology
Shingling technology is a new development of cell interconnection in a photovoltaic module. Essentially, solar shingling involves cutting solar cells into stripes (so called shingles) and arranging them in an overlapping pattern within a solar panel. The electrical connection between the shingles is made using electrically conductive adhesive, which can be printed or dispensed on the shingle’s surface.
The shingling approach provides several advantages compared to standard cell interconnection technology (using busbars): lower ohmic losses, better area utilization, thus increasing panel efficiency (meaning it creates more power in the same amount of space). And last but not least, the technology offers improved aesthetics to the photovoltaic module.
