The REC Alpha 72 Series will generate higher energy yields that help to drive down solar electricity generation costs for end-users. The production start follows REC’s successful launch of the world’s most powerful 60-cell solar panel in 2019.

“Our goal is to empower consumers with the best solar technology” said REC Group CEO Steve O’Neil. “We know that only with big leaps, energy transitions across the globe can thrive. The REC Alpha 72 Series is a crucial tool for businesses and communities to do exactly this and gain energy autonomy.”

The REC Alpha 72 Series, which combines heterojunction cell technology with advanced interconnection technology, has been designed to be perfectly suited for the commercial and industrial rooftop segment and ground mount installations with space restrictions where system costs can be greatly compressed, thanks to its high-power density. Weighing only 23.5kg, the module enables easy handling and quicker installation times for installers. It also offers one of the thinnest frames in the market with 30 mm, this means convenient transportation with more panels per pallet and container, which reduces transportation costs and is ultimately more environmentally-friendly.

The REC Alpha 72 Series features:

An innovative technology for higher energy yields with patented design

Absence of light-induced degradation (LID) and a best-in-class low temperature coefficient.

A super strong frame design including support bars ensuring high performance levels over the installation lifetime.

A world leading warranty, resulting in a minimum of 92 percent of nameplate power warranted at end of year 25.

The Alpha 72 is also eligible for REC’s ProTrust warranty which includes labor warranty and is available to REC Certified Solar Professionals.

The REC Alpha panel was initially launched at Intersolar Europe on May 15, 2019. First rooftop systems been installed in Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, US, New Zealand and Japan. For homeowners as well as businesses, REC Alpha has been designed to be the perfect solar module to drastically reduce their electricity bill and lead the shift towards a cleaner future by going solar with the latest technology, even with limited space available.
