REC launches REC TwinPeak 2 Series solar panels
REC has launched the new REC TwinPeak 2 Series solar panel.
Rated up to 295Wp, the REC TwinPeak 2 takes the power output of 60-cell multicrystalline panels to new heights.
The REC TwinPeak 2 Series uses evolving REC TwinPeak technologies, including cells from larger wafers (156.75 mm), and five busbars – both firsts for REC products. These are in addition to the power-boosting standard features of REC TwinPeak panels:
- Half-cut cell technology
- PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) technology
- Split junction box spread across the middle of the panel, allowing an innovative panel design
Together, these help the REC TwinPeak 2 Series deliver at least 20Wp more per panel compared to standard 60-cell multicrystalline panels. Installers, EPCs, investors and end customers will experience its advantages almost immediately, including lower balance of system costs and higher system yield thanks to its increased power output and improved performance in shaded conditions, enabled by the innovative ‘twin’ design.
“With a nominal power of up to 295 Wp, the REC TwinPeak 2 further showcases REC’s ability to push the boundaries of the muticrystalline platform and reach panel powers which many industry experts thought impossible with this technology for a 60-cell-size product,” says Cemil Seber, Vice President, Global Marketing and Product Management at REC.
“In an industry where high power output, strong product quality, and company reliability are key purchasing factors, REC and its growing product lineup – now including the REC TwinPeak 2 – is leading the way.”
This is the new generation of the ‘60-cell’ REC TwinPeak Series, which was launched in 2015 and won the Intersolar Award for ‘Photovoltaics’ that same year. The REC TwinPeak 72 Series, a 72-cell variant with 144 half-cut cells, was launched in August 2016. As with all REC panels, the REC TwinPeak 2 is 100% free from potential induced degradation (PID), avoiding power losses even in the harshest conditions and environments in terms of high temperatures and humidity.
