REC Alpha Series

REC Solar Panels

REC Alpha Series

Arguably the best solar panel available in Australia

The Alpha Series panel from REC was awarded the best solar panel 2020 by the well respected Solar Review website and is the world’s most powerful 60 cell solar panel.

Packed full of features they are available in watt classes up to 370 watts.

Heterojunction Cell technology

    REC Alpha Series panels use Heterojunction (HJT) cell technology. A heterojunction cell combines all the advantages of crystalline and thin-film solar technologies in a single hybrid structure. This provides one of the most effective solar cellson the market for high levels of power and efficiency - even in hot climates.

    • No LID = no power loss; you get the power you pay for
    • Leading temperature coefficient means more energy as temperature rises
    • Maximum power for maximum savings and accelerated return on investment
    • Its high power density (217 watts/m²) helps to get more from limited spaces
    • 20% more power on your roof compared to conventional panels

    Advanced cell connection technology

    • Increased number of wires greatly improves flow of electricity current
    • Eliminating invasive soldering removes risk of cell damage or microcracks for long-lasting high performance
    • Stylish looks thanks to thin, barely-visible wires and uniformly black-colored cells
    • Solder-free cells reduces lead content by a colossal 81%
    • Environmentally-friendly manufacturing drastically reduces carbon footprint

    REC’s iconic Twin panel design

    • Award-winning design, pioneered by REC
    • Panel split into two ‘Twin’ sections
    • Reduces internal resistance for more power and reliability
    • Continued energy production in shaded conditions means you see higher energy yields

    Super Strong

    • Support bars protect cells and glass from bending under load
    • Allows extreme loads up to 7000 Pa
    • Panels maintain high performance levels over the installation lifetime

    Greater energy production

    This system boasts a temperature coefficient of only -0.26% whereas most other solar power panels are -0.38% or higher. This means that on a 35 degree day when the temperature of your panels is around 60 degrees, the power output from the REC Alpha series will reduce by only 9.1%, where production from other panels will typically reduce by 13.3% or more.

    Improved shade tolerance

    This system features REC’s award winning “Twin Panel” design, which means if the bottom half of the solar power panel is shaded, the top half of the panel will continue to generate full power.

    Zero LID

    When a panel is first exposed to sunlight, standard panels suffer from a loss of power generation capacity, known as Light Induced Degradation (LID). This is caused by a combination of boron and oxygen inside a solar cell and causes a permanent drop in a standard panel’s maximum power. The n-type technology used in REC’s Alpha cells stops these two elements from mixing at any level eliminating LID.
