Standard solar panel size
Traditional solar panels have two common configurations: 60 and 72. The corresponding dimensions are:
60 photovoltaic modules: 1.635 ㎡ (1.65 m x 0.991 m)
72 photovoltaic modules: 1.938m2 (1.956m x 0.991m)
Note: There are components with larger area, larger size and higher efficiency on the market. This article only takes 60 chip and 72 chip components as examples.
One of the first questions people will ask when choosing to install PV is: "Where do I build my system?" Solar panels take up quite a lot of space, and not every roof has enough space for them.
This article will cover standard solar panel sizes and explain how to determine how many solar panels your photovoltaic system needs. Thus, the PV capacity can be calculated to estimate the annual power generation and income.
The solar cell is the smallest unit for photoelectric conversion, and the common size is 156mm x 156mm. The working voltage of the solar cell is about 0.5V, which cannot be used alone. After the solar cells are packaged in series and parallel, they become photovoltaic modules.
The single solar cell is a 156mm x 156mm square. 60 battery panel with 6 × 10. 72 battery panels with 6 × 12, they are about 3-4 cm high.
