REC Group on launching its REC Alpha solution
Today, international solar energy Company with headquarters in Norway, REC Group today announced the new REC Alpha Pure Black solar panel. Thus, this technology marks a major advancement of the REC Alpha launched in 2019 and will start production in June 2021.
In fact, this new solution includes an innovative gapless cell layout. Besides, the technology reached 405 Wp; and will start production at REC’s fully automated manufacturing facility in Singapore, with first deliveries expected in July.
Furthermore, REC Alpha Pure Black’s solar panel offers one of the highest power densities on the market. Therefore, it can help homeowners and businesses benefit from optimum use of space and even higher savings on energy bills.
In fact, the new solution is based on REC’s Twin Design and the patented split cell and junction box technology. Thus, it has already proven so popular in REC solar panels, including the original Alpha Series.
The importance of sustainable solar panels
According to the company, the new technology solution marks an important advancement on sustainability. For instance, REC eliminated lead from all panel components.
Therefore, the panel meets the European RoHS regulation, which is mandatory for all kinds of electrical products, but not for photovoltaic panels.
Hence, through this innovation REC is doing a statement of its continued commitment to clean solar energy. Besides, it is saving on natural resources, reducing waste and eliminating hazardous components.
In fact, a solar panel typically contains a small amount of lead in relation to its total weight. On a large scale, the impact is significant. For instance, last year alone, around 400 million solar panels were produced worldwide; adding around 10,000 tons of lead to the ecosystem.
