Most Efficient Commercial Available PV Solar Panels, February of 2021

The most efficient solar panel list of February 2021 has two new entries and four changes in the most-efficient list. These new entries have taken the previous positions of their competitors with higher power output and efficiency. 

The first entry is related to Jinko Solar‘s well-known series, the Tiger Pro with 21.4% and 585 W power output; it is placed in the fifth rank of the most efficient solar panel list of February 2021. The other entry is the Vertex model of Trina Solar. The Vertex PV module with 21.2% and 600 W power output is ranked in the seventh level higher than the Canadian Solar HiKu7 model.

The former entry brought two changes in February’s list as it has reached 600 W power output with lesser solar cells, 120 solar cells in front of 132 cells, places in the higher rank and have pushed down the Canadian Solar’s HiKu7 model.
