N-type mono solar panel incorporates twin design

From REC Group comes the N-Peak high-performance solar panel which s n-type mono half-cut cells with a twin-panel design, and offers power output of up to 330 W peak. The production of n-type mono cells starts at the end of June and first N-Peak modules are scheduled to roll off the line in August.

CEO Steve O’Neil introduced the new module at Intersolar Europe, saying, “The new REC N-Peak writes the next chapter in our company narrative. We are taking a big step by leapfrogging into advanced n-mono technology, reinforcing our reputation as an innovator of reliable and efficient solar panels. It is one thing to design high efficiency products on a lab scale, but a totally different one to bring it to mass production.”

Other key features of the N-Peak include: 60-cell module, strong frame design for loads up to 7000 Pa, zero light-induced degradation 12-year product warranty and 0.5% annual degradation over 25-year power warranty, resulting in 86% of nameplate power after 25 years, improved performance in shaded conditions, flexible installation options.

REC says that initial field tests carried out by the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore have shown that the new N-Peak offers a distinct energy yield advantage over competitive p-mono products.
