REC Group will officially launch its new REC Alpha Series solar panel in the United States at Solar Power International 2019. The REC Alpha Series is the world’s most powerful 60-cell monocrystalline solar panel, delivering up to 380 W and reaching a 21.7% efficiency rating. This translates to a leading power density of 217 W/m², providing 20% more power than produced by the same number of conventional panels in the same area. The new module was first introduced to the European market this past May.
“The REC Alpha Series’ next-generation technology shows increased energy production, with higher lifetime yield, and is designed with an incredibly strong and aesthetically pleasing, sleek frame,” said REC Group Americas president, Cary Hayes. “With the Alpha, REC creates a ‘win-win’ opportunity for our growing U.S. market of solar partners and professionals, as well as for homeowners and businesses who want higher power, more efficient clean sources of energy that deliver greater value.”
Granted a design patent, the REC Alpha Series continues REC’s pioneering and award-winning ‘Twin Panel‘ design, which delivers demonstrably better performance in shaded conditions. Featuring 120 half-cut heterojunction cells (HJT) with advanced connection technology, the REC Alpha Series achieves much higher efficiency and energy yield, even in higher temperatures.
In addition to increased power and efficiency, the REC Alpha Series panels are backed by REC’s industry-leading 25-year product warranty (when installed by REC Solar Professionals), and a 25-year performance warranty that guarantees 92% of initial power at year 25.
