REC receives prestigious Intersolar Award 2015 for its new REC TwinPeak panels
Steve O’Neil, CEO at REC, proudly comments: “The Intersolar Award is highly recognized within the industry. This achievement is a great testament to our R&D initiatives and the efforts of our technology and product development teams worldwide to continuously improve our products and solutions. It is another clear indicator of our premium and thought leadership position in the solar market. Combining four enablers harmoniously into the TwinPeak for mass production, we succeeded with a ground breaking idea at a competitive price for affordable solar energy.”
The prize, which is being presented for the eighth time running, honors innovative solutions in the solar industry. Highly regarded in the industry, the award serves as a barometer of trends. The jury of this third party award consists of industry experts, such as solar research organizations and leading trade media.
With demand on quality requirements continuously increasing, the recently introduced REC TwinPeak solar panel is rated up to 280 watt peak, delivering more power output per square meter. The new series is ideal for the full range of rooftop solar applications in the growing residential, commercial, and industrial markets. Production of the REC TwinPeak began in Q1 2015 on new manufacturing lines at REC’s vertically integrated and fully automated production site in Singapore.
The innovative panel design — which incorporates 120 half-cut multicrystalline cells, four busbars, passivated emitter rear cell (PERC) technology, and a split junction box — provides enhanced reliability and performance, reduced heat build-up and resistive losses, and increased light absorption, fill factor and efficiency. This cutting-edge solution on a polysilicon platform makes the product strongly competitive with monocrystalline solar panels on efficiency and performance.
