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 N-Peak cells stops these two elements from mixing at any level eliminating LID.
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.
