Your Solar Estimator

The Solar Estimator is meant only to give you an idea of price, savings and system size. The results are based upon many assumptions and the limited data you will enter. An actual site assessment by a qualified Solar Pro will be needed to determine the actual costs and benefits of installing a solar system. Please read the results screen carefully, including the extensive list of Notes and Assumptions.

Re: Your Solar Estimator

Solar Pros are a pretty rare breed up here in Washington :)

Out of the three basic types, Amorphous, Mono-Crystal and Polycrystal Silicon, do you know which is more efficient in overcast (cloudy) weather?

I have noticed that the solar panels used for remote locations (i.e. Telecommunications, road warning lighting etc.) tend to be of the Polycrystal type here.
I wonder if this is because they are the best watt per buck or because they actually are more efficient under lower light conditions. :?
