Understanding the Financial Differences: Capex vs. Opex in the Solar Industry
As solar energy continues to grow in popularity, it’s important to understand the financial implications of investing in solar projects.
One key consideration is the difference between capital expenditures (capex) and operating expenditures (opex).
Whether you’re an experienced investor or just starting out, it’s essential to understand the nuances of capex and opex investments in solar energy. The blog post provides a detailed overview of these differences, giving you the knowledge you need to make informed decisions about your investments.
In this blog we explore the three main types of PV modules namely, monocrystalline, polycrystalline and thin-film.
Understanding the difference is very important to select the perfect panel for your home, industry, business or for any other purpose.
All these panels differ in efficiency as they differ in the type and number of silicon cells they have.
The cost, size and weight of a solar module is often determined by its cell count. The quality and efficiency of the solar cells have a huge impact on the power output of the module.
Dive into the blog to know more about these PV modules. Do wait for a part B, in which we discuss about the latest advancements in these module technology.

The following blog contains the types of system design in PVsyst.
There are three types of system of solar PV systems. Grid connected, standalone and pumping systems. Grid-connected and standalone are often referred to on-grid and off-grid systems.
Diving into this blog you can know more about these systems. Their properties, advantages, disadvantages. How and where these systems are used. You can also learn more about how these systems are designed in PVsyst, metrics required to do that etc.,
By the end of this blog, you will have a clear view on how system designing is done on PVsyst, become familiar with the terminologies of the PVsyst. Also, you will be able to have an idea on the important output parameters to be focused on.
