REC Solar introduces fifth generation of TwinPeak modules
- The Norwegian solar firm REC Group has actually started production of the 5th generation of its TwinPeak modules.
The TwinPeak 5 series includes 5 module types with results between 395 and also 415 watts, which is substantially higher than the 350 to 375 watts of the 4 series. However, this is likewise because of the reality that REC has added one row of half cells per module fifty percent. While the 4-series still managed with 120 half-cells, the 5-series currently has 132 half-cells. At 1,899 by 1,040 millimeters, the modules are additionally rather larger and also, at 21.6 kgs, somewhat larger. At up to 21.1 percent, the efficiency of the most effective module in the collection has to do with half a percentage point more than the precursor collection. As before, there is likewise a black variant with a black structure and also black back aluminum foil for the 5 collection, but it has a slightly reduced efficiency of 20.8 percent maximum. All TwinPeak types feature cut in half PERC cells from REC's own manufacturing, which are defined by a particularly reduced temperature level coefficient, along with a split junction box. The modules are produced at REC's "Industrie 4.0" website in Singapore. Delivery in Europe is arranged to start in January 2023.
