There are several ways to connect solar panels, depending on your specific setup and needs: – In series, the positive terminal of one panel is connected to the negative terminal of the next.


In parallel, which involves connecting the positive terminals and negative terminals separately.


Hybrid connections can also be used, which combine elements of both series and parallel connections.
