After first unveiling the new line of EverVolt solar panels in December 2020, Panasonic announced today that the modules are now available for shipping. This comes after the company revealed its plans to discontinue the legacy HIT panel line and all panel manufacturing earlier this month.
The EverVolt series features two distinct lines for the residential market: traditional white-backsheet/silver frame, and all-black modules. The traditional modules have a maximum output of 370 W and 21.2% efficiency. The all-black EverVolt modules reach 360 W with 20.6% efficiency.
The new solar modules are a result of Panasonic’s transition to larger solar cell sizes. When installed by a Panasonic Authorized, Premium or Elite installer and registered through the Panasonic website, the EverVolt modules are covered by Panasonic’s TripleGuard and AllGuard 25-year product, performance and labor warranties. Panels installed by installers outside of the Panasonic network will still receive 25-year product and performance warranties.
“We are excited homeowners can officially purchase the new EverVolt modules. By bringing these new products to market, Panasonic is signaling to installers and homeowners its continued investment in solar energy innovation,” said Mukesh Sethi, Director, Solar and Energy Storage at Panasonic Life Solutions Company of America. “As we look to the future of the solar industry, our mission remains the same: to create a better world by providing the best renewable energy technology possible. As one of America’s most trusted brands, we will continue to provide the high level of support and quality solar products homeowners have come to expect from Panasonic.”
