The different types of solar panels are simple enough for anyone to understand but first, they need to know about the main kinds. Crystalline silicon is perhaps the most common out of all types of solar cell devices around today. Of the crystalline silicon solar cells, there are two different types which are single crystalline (monocrystalline) and poly-crystalline (multi-crystalline) silicon. 

Both types of solar cells are equally fragile, expensive and require the same kind of careful handling but still have their differences in terms of operation.

Aside from their similarities, each type does have a couple differences which make them different from others. Monocrystalline solar panels are best known for their obvious expensive characteristics but their high power output and profound efficiency are what set them apart from all other types of cells. 

Many consumers using these single cell solar panels complain about their peculiar shape that leads to one or both possible outcomes: the shape of the cells cause overlapping when mounted which will end up wasting silicon on the sides or the shape causes wasted space in between cells.
Polycrystalline solar panels are less expensive to produce which makes purchasing them an easy task as they are less expensive than single crystalline. 

Although these cells are less powerful than the monocrystalline, studies typically show that more consumers pick polycrystalline over monocrystalline cells. However, all crystalline panels are highly unstable and usually require being put between two thin sheets of glass or other material for constant protection and shielding from weather and other damaging elements.
Amorphous silicon is much less expensive to make and has a few unique abilities that allow these types of solar cells to be used on more base structures than any other type of solar cell in use these days .

 Calculators are a great example for where you have seen amorphous silicon being used and as you also might know, those solar strips on the calculators were very durable as are the cells themselves. There are many more sub-types of solar panels as well so make sure to research fully before making any decisions.
