Increasing solar power module efficiency for homeowners

14 Nov 2018

Panasonic Eco Solutions of North America unveiled new high-efficiency HIT series solar modules that offer increased module efficiency at high temperatures, enhanced module design, and durable long-term performance. The expanded Panasonic Photovoltaic HIT portfolio of 96-cell, 40mm modules include the N340/N335 HIT+ Series with 20.3/20% module efficiency, and the N335K/N330K HIT+ BLACK Series with 20/19.7% module efficiency, expected to be available in the U.S. in 2019. New HIT series module features also include; high module efficiency that enables higher power output and greater energy yields, a new 40mm frame designed to increase durability and strength, with the ability to handle loads of up to 5400Pa. Additionally, the module’s enhanced design features a water drainage system providing rain water and snow melt a place to go, reducing water stains and soiling that enables sunlight to get through to generate more power, low degradation with HIT “N-type” cells, which result in Low Light Induced Degradation (LID) and zero Potential Induced Degradation (PID) to support reliability and longevity. This technology reduces annual degradation to 0.26%as compared to 0.70% in conventional solar modules, and a 25-year comprehensive warranty that covers module performance and workmanship.
