Synonyms: solar modules

Regarding photovoltaic or solar panels with crystalline cells, the photoactive layer consists of serial and/or parallel interconnected solar cells which are embedded into two plastic films. A front glass protects the interior for mechanical damage. Regarding thin-film solar modules the photoactive layer is applied directly onto the glass which then is laser-cut into strips and interconnected serial.
