Solar panel price in Nigeria varies by different factors. It could be a result of the manufacturer, the solar panel wattage, or the quality/type. Solar technologies function by converting sunlight into electrical energy through photovoltaic (PV) panels. The energy from the sun that has been converted can be used to generate electricity for home and business use or be stored in batteries or thermal storage for use during nighttime.

Photovoltaic (PV) technologies commonly known as solar panels possess materials and devices that enable them to convert sunlight into regular electrical energy. A single PV device is called a cell. A single solar panel cell is usually small and produces about 1 or 2 watts of power for usage. PV cells are made of different semiconductor materials and are often smaller than the thickness of four human hairs. To boost the energy or power output of the cells, they are carefully connected together in chains to form larger units known as modules or panels.

As noted earlier, factors like power generation level (wattage) and quality affect solar panel price in Nigeria. Below is the current cost of solar panels in Nigeria by different wattage.

 

Solar Panel Price in Nigeria by High Wattage  

The purpose for purchasing a solar panel would generally determine the watts you need and the cost of the solar panels.

Type of Solar Panels in Nigeria

We noted before that one of the factors that affect the cost of solar panels in Nigeria is the type of the panel. There are three types that could change solar panel price in Nigeria in a heartbeat.

The three types of solar panels available are polycrystalline, monocrystalline, and thin-film solar panels. Each of these panels has cells that are made in a unique way and have a slightly different aesthetic appearance. Let’s take a look at the different types of solar panels in Nigeria as it is in other countries.

Monocrystalline Solar Panels

Monocrystalline solar panels are the most efficient of the three, and choosing to use them will affect the cost of solar installation in Nigeria no matter the Inverter type you choose to use. They are more expensive because they are the very best. Their cells are made from pure silicon. You can see the full difference between Monocrystalline and Polycrystalline solar panels. 

Polycrystalline Solar Panels

As a result of their efficiency level, polycrystalline solar panels are becoming very popular because they come close to Mono panels. Though they still use silicon like monocrystalline PV, polycrystalline cells are created from a newer process but less efficient when compared to monocrystalline cells.

Thin-Film Solar Panels

Thin-Film solar panels are the newest type of solar panel in the solar energy space. It’s the most versatile of the three types primarily because of its unique flexibility and manufacturing process. While monocrystalline and polycrystalline rely on silicon, thin-film solar panels can be made from a variety of materials, such as copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS), amorphous silicon (a-Si) and cadmium telluride (CdTe). You can identify thin-film panels easily because of their thin appearance. Thin-film panels are approximately 350 times thinner than solar panels made from silicon and are the cheapest with the lowest efficiency level.

 

How Solar Efficiency Affects Solar Panel Price in Nigeria

Simply put, solar panel efficiency is how much energy each solar panel type can produce from the amount of sunlight it receives per time. In a nutshell, efficiency determines how much power a solar panel can produce.

The monocrystalline solar panels are the most efficient reaching over 20% efficiency. For instance the 655w monocrystalline has over 21% efficiency. The second most efficient are the polycrystalline panels which can reach 13-16% efficiency and thin-film efficiency is between 7 – 18%.

As you must have guessed, solar panel prices are dependent on their efficiency. The higher their efficiency, the higher the price. Hence, the monocrystalline solar panels are the most expensive of the three followed by Poly.
