Solar Panel Module Type:

        a) Mono Crystalline Silicon: Mono Crystalline panels are created from a single                     continuous crystal structure.
        b) Thin Film Silicon: Thin Film Silicon cells are made by depositing one or more                   thin layers of silicon on a substrate such as glass, plastic or metal.
        c) Other Thin Film: Thin Film solar cells are made by depositing one or more thin               layers of Photovoltaic material on a substrate such as glass, plastic or metal.
        d) Thin Film Copper: Copper Gallium Indium Selenide solar cell is one of the                       three mainstream thin-film technologies with a lab-efficiency above 20%.
        e) Thin Film Cadmium: Cadmium Telluride solar cell is one of the three                                 mainstream thin-film technologies with lab-efficiency above 20%. CdTe has                   the lowest Energy Payback time of all mass-produced PV Technologies.
