We have been spending our time learning about how solar cells work. Nevertheless, one equally important knowledge is to know how they are made. A good manufacturing process will ensure higher efficiency and lower cost solar cells. The manufacturing process of solar panels can be divided into four main phases. In chapter 6.0, we will discuss phases 1 and 2. In chapter 6.1, we will discuss phases 3 and 4.
