Panasonic HIT Series Solar Panel Technology

Posted by

Panasonic solar panels currently have the highest efficiency ratings in the industry at 19.7% efficiency. What gives Panasonic the edge over their competitors, like most manufacturers their edge comes from unique and innovative technology. The HIT series features an innovative hetero-junction cell structure of monocrystalline and amorphous silicon layers. The ultra-thin silicon layers prevent recombination of electrons, which keeps energy loss to a minimum. Although Panasonic panels are typically initially more expensive than competitors with similar wattages, such as SolarWorld and Canadian Solar, the high efficiency rating keeps them on track and can outpace the ROI period of their competitors if proper installation and maintenance practices are used.

The Panasonic modules are designed with a 96-cell design, as opposed to the more traditional 60 or 72 cell modules. The design can produce up to 36% more in free electricity in comparison to 60 cell panels. Although the design produces more efficiency finding compatible microinverters can be difficult. The design also makes the panels taller and wider than traditional solar panels. It is important that home and business owners keep these specifications in mind when designing their systems. That being said, however, limited roof space is available, the modules may still be able to be utilized due to their higher wattage ratings. The 96-cell design provides more solar power output per square foot, fewer panels to install, and can be ideal for small roof areas. Furthermore, despite their bigger size, Panasonic panels remain compatible with the same racking components that their competitors use such as IronRide and SnapNrack. This is largely due to the fact that their panels are not much heavier than 60 and 72 cell modules, and are roughly the same thickness as smaller panels on the market.

A little-known fact about Panasonic is the amount of time they have been in the solar industry. The company started the research and development of their solar cells in 1975 and has since pioneered the industry in setting high efficiency standards. To ensure they maintain their high-quality standards, Panasonic uses in-house manufacturing on all of their wafers, cells and modules in their state of the art production facilities. After the manufacturing process is complete, the panels undergo the industry’s most stringent independent testing and quality control standards. Their panels come with the industry standard 25-year power output warranty and a 15-year workmanship warranty, which is 5 years above the average. Current testing shows that Panasonic modules have minimal field degradation with actual recorded data showing stable performance over 11 years.

In addition to their impressive industry standards, Panasonic also offers top notch support from purchasing to the end of your panels life cycle. Their technical support is available by phone or through email to answer any installation or technical related questions regarding their modules. Through past experience the satisfaction of their customers is among the top of their priorities, and first time solar purchasers can feel secure in their purchase on a technological, financial and support standpoint. As an added bonus, the HIT series also features a unique water drainage system into their frame design that keeps water off of your modules and keeps them working at their peak capacity.
