Panasonic unveiled two new lines of EverVolt solar modules and an updated EverVolt energy storage system today at RE+. Olympic gold medalist and Panasonic Brand Ambassador Michael Phelps was on-site promoting the new products.
“I am passionate about clean energy and a sustainable future for both my family and the world,” Phelps said. “Panasonic’s long-standing commitment to sustainability, including developing the technologies to create a cleaner future such as high-performance solar panels and home energy storage, is why I have chosen to work with them this year to outfit my own home with a Panasonic solar energy system.”
The 430HK2/420HK2 Black Series modules, made with half-cut cells and heterojunction technology with gapless connections, are the most powerful modules offered by Panasonic. In addition, the 405PK2/400PK2 Black Series modules are made with PERC technology and half-cut cells to maximize conversion efficiency and provide higher power output at a more accessible price point.
The 430HK2 and 420HK2 Black Series modules have efficiency ratings of 22.2 and 21.7%, respectively. Designed for long-term durability, these Panasonic modules are expected to provide power output of at least 92% after 25 years.
The 405PK2 and 400PK2 Black Series modules have efficiencies of 20.8 and 20.5% respectively, offering homeowners a cost-effective option for clean energy. With streamlined aesthetics and a compact design, the 405PK2 and 400PK2 modules offer a power output of at least 84.8% after 25 years.
“Our newest lines of sleek, all-black modules were made with performance, durability and flexibility in mind,” said Mukesh Sethi, Director of Solar and Energy Storage at Panasonic Eco Systems North America. “Our variety of premium modules offer various capabilities and price points, allowing more flexibility and options for both consumers and installers.”
Announced in June and making its public debut at RE+, the newest generation of the EverVolt Home Battery Systems supports both DC and AC coupling. This battery system is a fully integrated solution that combines a hybrid inverter, a lithium-ion battery and the new EverVolt SmartBox, a home energy management device. This newest generation of battery system can be installed indoors or outdoors and mounted to the floor or wall. Up to four batteries can be stacked to a single SmartBox to provide up to 30 kW of power and 72 kWh of usable energy, meeting even the heaviest demands.
