Fused Silica in Multidirectional Solar Panel Manufacture

Fused silica in solar panels makes their orientation less vital. There has always been one clear rule for anyone installing rooftop solar panels: point them in the direction where they can capture the greatest amount of sunlight. For people living in the Northern Hemisphere this means pointing the panel to the south; for those in…
