The TwinPeak 2S Mono 72 is the company’s newest half-cut monocrystalline PERC panel. The initial strong demand for the panel is continuing into early 2019 with US orders for the panels now surpassing 200 MW.
“REC’s launch of two new panels with this mono-PERC technology has far exceeded our expectations” said Cary Hayes, President REC Americas. “Longtime customers are thrilled with this addition to our product lineup and this is clearly reflected by the immediate orders in significant volumes”.
REC Group was the first manufacturer to introduce half-cut cell solar panels in mass production in 2014. To date, more than 2.2 GW of REC TwinPeak solar panels with half-cut cells have been installed around the globe. The US represented roughly forty percent of REC Group’s global solar panel shipments in 2018 and continues to be the company’s key market.
The new mono panels offer increased power output per square meter and improved performance in shaded conditions, making the panels the perfect choice for residential and small commercial rooftop installations where high power is required in limited space or subject to partial shading. The lightweight REC TwinPeak 2S Mono 72 panels enable large commercial and utility installations to benefit from the lower balance of system costs inherent in this 72-cell format.
The panels are also supported by REC’s new warranty covering both power output and panel construction.
