Multi-crystalline are made up from slices of silicon crystals fused together and then sliced into cells. They have an efficiency rate of around 14-16% - 1 Square meter of panel could produce between 100 and 130 watts of electrical power.

Any technology of panels suffers from output loss once the panels reach 50 degrees Celsius or above - Losses from 10 - 15% should be expected and factored into any calculations for systems where ambient temperatures will consistently be above 40 degrees Celsius. Unless you have problems with space on your roof, the panel efficiency is not something to use as a basis for considering panels. A 200w poly will at STC give 200w, and so will a 200w mono. The efficiency difference simply means that the poly may be slightly bigger, but in most cases not to the point where you could pick it.

If the tolerance and the power/temperature coefficient for any panel are better for the same nameplate rated poly or mono, then that one should perform better. There is no rule for this, some polys are better than mono- crystalline, and vice versa. Some polys are more expensive than some mono- crystalline for the same size, and vice versa.

Multi- crystalline (better to call them polys for consistency) don't perform better (and neither do mono- crystalline) for the same nameplate rating, unless they have either a better tolerance, or a lower power/temp coefficient, or both. Better to consider overall panel quality and performance, price, warranty and likelihood of longer term support.

At the end of the day this will mean that your usable sunlight hour yield is increased by around 7%. If we just think about that, that means that you can get 7% MORE electricity from your system over its life. With a 2.35kW system generating around 9.4kWh per day, over 25 years, that would amount to over 6000kWh extra power generated. Finally, most silicon wafers which are Mono-crystalline have 2 Bus bars. Bus bars are the vertical bars which carry energy from cell to cell through the panel. Infinity Multi-crystalline Panels have the latest technology which includes 3 Bus bars. This has the effect of assisting the low light capabilities of the panels, and again, customers will get a better overall long term system performance using these panels.

Ultimately, what you need is a system that uses the best technology, and provides the greatest return on investment. To get the best ROI, use multi-crystalline panels.

The Super-Multi is a major advancement. This technique merges Multi and Mono-crystalline manufacturing processes and together with other refinements has produced a much more advanced, hybrid version of already highly efficient Multi-crystalline solar cells.

This advancement has produced highly efficient solar cells with very low impurities and higher electrical energy conversion ratio making the Super-Multi the ideal choice for your solar requirements.
