As the solar energy industry expands worldwide, more and more people are considering installing solar energy systems for home use. Although traditional solar systems are mature enough to offset the energy expenditure for most households, users still expect more efficient solar modules to emerge.


Under the strong market demand, bifacial solar modules have begun to enter the market. Compared with traditional solar modules, bifacial solar modules have many outstanding advantages. Next, we will explain the working principle and installation process of the bifacial solar module.



1. How do Bifacial Solar Modules Work?

We all know that after ordinary solar panels are installed on the roof, only the side facing the sun can absorb sunlight. However, the bifacial solar module is a device that can absorb solar energy on both sides of the solar panel at the same time. When the bifacial solar module is installed on a highly reflective roof or ground, the power capacity of solar panels can be increased by nearly 30%.


The design of bifacial solar modules is very diverse. Some modules have borders, and some don't. In addition, some may use double glazing, while others are completely transparent. Most of the bifacial solar modules on the market use monocrystalline solar cells, as the manufacturing process of the cells is relatively simple, which can match the bifacial solar modules well.

2. How to Install Bifacial Solar Modules?

The installation of bifacial solar modules usually depends on its type. In general, a bifacial solar module with a frame is the easiest to install, because this module is designed according to the traditional solar panel and photovoltaic support system, which is fully compatible with the solar system. If you buy solar modules from a trustworthy solar manufacturer, these manufacturers usually provide professional tools to help you install the bifacial solar modules to ensure that there will be no problems in the installation process.


If your bifacial solar module is not protected by a frame, solar manufacturers often install them with rubber shields to prevent the glass on the module from breaking. At the same time, they will remind you not to randomly screw the bolts on the module. Once the bolts are screwed too tightly, the glass is also likely to break.


Since the bifacial solar modules can absorb sunlight on both sides of the solar panel, the higher a bifacial module is tilted, the more power it produces from its bifacial properties. That's why installing a bifacial solar module on a flat roof or on the ground can produce such a good power generation effect. The flat place can make the module have more tilt space so that more sunlight can be reflected to the other side of the panel.
