|Double-Sided Solar Cells from BSolar Produce Up to 50% More Energy|
Double-sided (otherwise known as bifacial) solar cells are capable of generating electricity from sunlight received on their front size, but also from leftover sunlight that diffused and/or reflected by using the back side (second side) of the cell.
Solar panels of this type have been under development for decades, but they have generally been too expensive to compete with conventional solar panels. BSolar, however, recently announced that it has developed double-sided solar panels that produce 50% more power than conventional panels in vertical installations. It says that they are also more affordable than traditional double-sided panels.
