The PV panels are comprised of  multiple solar cells which are linked together into solar modules, and these panels may be installed as wall-mounted, floating, rooftop-mounted or ground-mounted applications, depending upon geographic location and project  purpose. The panels can be installed in a stationary (fixed) or “suntracking” (dynamic) orientation. Read more.
