Do Solar Panel Frames Matter?

Before a manufacturer decides whether they should put frames on their solar panels or not, they need to take some factors into consideration. First of all, design and cost are important to take note of. Other factors include mechanical characteristics and benefits they provide. These benefits include handling, storage, grounding, fixation, and load resistance like snow or wind.
Do take note that the solar panel frame issue doesn’t lie on its one-size-fits-all concern. Two frames with the same thickness may not yield the same benefits.
What makes solar manufacturers move towards thinner frames?
