In recent years, Passivated Emitter and Rear Contact (PERC) solar panels have been gaining popularity in the solar panel industry as a viable option for creating more efficient solar power. These solar panels use PERC solar cells, an improved version of conventional solar cells. Their modified design allows them to generate 6 to 12 per cent more energy than their traditional counterparts.
PERC stands for Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell. The PERC solar cell has a presence of a passivation layer at the back side of the cell, which helps to minimize recombination losses and increase light absorption. The key role of the rear-side passivation layer is to reflect light that passes through the silicon cell without being absorbed back into the silicon. By reflecting this light, the passivation layer gives the solar cell a second chance at absorbing it, resulting in significant improvement in efficiency.
