REC's Alpha series is currently the world's most powerful 60-cell solar PV panel, achieving a power density of 217 Watts per square meter and a STC efficiency of over 21%. 375-Watt monocrystalline module is based on REC's award-winning TwinPeak technology, whose unique "twin" design enables it to generate electricity even when partially shaded.
Like its TwinPeak modules, REC's Alpha solar panels use a "half-cut" PV cell design, splitting the panel into twin sections to lower electrical resistance and allow for continued power production in partial shade conditions. But unlike the TwinPeaks, the Alphas feature REC's heterojunction (HJT) cell technology. These monocrystalline cells are solder-free and feature more wiring between cells for improved current flow.
In addition to power density and efficiency, the other area the REC Alpha separates itself from the pack is with its super-strong frame. While made of the standard anodized aluminum found in most solar panel frames, the Alpha frames are reinforced by two rear support bars, allowing them to handle snow loads of up to 7000 Pa instead of the industry-standard 5400 Pa.
