They do make combination panels..

Solimpeks PV-T Hybrid Collectors | SOLIMPEKS Solar Energy Corp.

They just aren't practical.. I think the warranty on this type of panel is likely
only 5 to 10 years. The standard PV panels are for 2 or 3 times as long.

This kind of "hybrid" panel isn't ready for prime time.
Kinda like the Solar Powered car.. Not practical.

My hobby is installing & trying to repair mini-splits
EPA 608 Type 1 Technician Certification ~ 5 lbs or less..
