About REC


A pioneer in the solar industry, Renewable Energy Corporation (REC) is a highly respected Norwegian company with production facilities worldwide including the USA, Sweden, and Singapore.

REC was established in 1996 and has since grown rapidly. REC headquarters are based in Norway with their main manufacturing plant in Singapore. REC is considered by many to be in the top 3 premium manufacturers worldwide. They are a tier 1 company that is way ahead of the pack & lead the industry with constant innovation.

Today REC is one of the world’s leaders in the solar energy industry and has become one of the largest producers of solar panels. REC manufactures its own silicon, wafers, cells, and modules and does extensive quality control throughout the complete production process.

SolarWide has sold REC panels since we started the business in 2011. We have tested them in the harshest conditions and their performance and resilience have been fantastic.[/vc_column_text]


REC One Of The Best Known Panels On The Market!

 


REC Solar Panels


REC is the perfect choice for building solar systems that combine long lasting product quality with reliable power output. REC combines high-quality design and manufacturing standards to produce high-performance solar panels with uncompromising quality.

At SolarWide we offer the REC TwinPeak 2 Series & the NEW REC N-Peak Series.


REC TwinPeak 2 Series – 295W


The REC TwinPeak 2 panels are a multi-award winning panel that has taken solar technology to the next level. With Passive Emitter Rear Cells (PERC), 5 bus bars and half cut cell technology the performance is superior to most of the competition. In addition to high production, they also have a dual junction box split across the panel. Rather than just having 1 junction box, the REC TP2 has 2. This reduces the impact of shade on a panel. REC has been proven time and time again to be one of the BEST choices in solar!


Highlights of REC TwinPeak 2 Series – 295W


  • Module efficiency of 17.7%.
  • The temperature coefficient of PMPP of 0.36%/°C. This is an amazing achievement by REC as it really proves their tolerance to the heat of the Queensland climate. This one factor makes a huge difference in your power
  • Positive watt class tolerance of -0/+5 means each panel is guaranteed to be up to 5W over the 295W
  • Excellent in low light. This gives higher production as they start earlier and finish
  • PID Free certified. This ensures that the panel is free from the effects of Potential Induce Degradation in the
  • 120 REC half cut multi-crystalline cells. This improves the electrical flow and boosts
  • Dual junction box split panel to severely reduce the impact of
  • 2mm Self-cleaning solar glass with anti-reflective surface treatment.
  • Five bus bars & superior contact between the cells and metal fingers increases electrical
  • Dual wall anodized aluminium frame to withstand extreme weather conditions and prevent
  • Vertically integrated production line ensures superior quality and
  • FANTASTIC WARRANTY: 20-years Product Warranty as standard but with SolarWide you get an extra 5 years as SolarWide is a REC Solar Professional. This makes it 25 years Product Warranty altogether! Plus, a 25-year linear power output warranty (97.5% after the first year and only 0.7% p.a. thereafter). For more information visit www.recgroup.com.

 


REC N-Peak Series – 315W


The REC N-Peak range has taken the world by storm. REC developed the half-cell twin panel design with the TwinPeak but have now taken it even further with the N-Peak. They have combined all of the benefits of the TwinPeak but have supercharged it by using an N-Type mono-crystalline cell. This has enabled REC to get even higher wattage panels and produce outstanding quality panels.

 

The REC N-Peak still has the dual junction box design that splits the panel in 2. When part of the panel becomes shaded, the other half continues working as normal. The reduced impact of shade on a panel can ensure significantly more power production over the lifetime of the panel.

Highlights of REC N-Peak 315W Solar Panels

  • Module efficiency of 18.9%.
  • The temperature coefficient of PMPP of 0.35%/°C. This is an amazing achievement by REC as it really proves their tolerance to the heat of the S.E QLD climate. This one factor makes a huge difference in your power
  • Positive watt class tolerance of -0/+5 means each panel is guaranteed to be up to 5W over the 315W
  • PID certified. This ensures that the panel is free from the harsh effects of Potential Induce Degradation in the
  • The loss of power generation capacity seen in a standard solar panel on its first exposure to light is known as Light-Induced Degradation (LID). This is a result of the reaction of boron and oxygen inside a cell and causes a permanent drop in a standard panel’s maximum power. Not with the REC N-Peak Series, however! Through the use of n-type technology, REC’s N-Peak cells avoid this reaction and therefore LID can be fully prevented.
  • 120 REC half cut mono-crystalline N-Type cells. This improves the electrical flow and boosts N-Type cells are far more expensive than P-Type cells, but their performance is exceptional. As far as we are aware, there are only 3 main manufacturers using N-Type cells. REC, SunPower and LG. These 3 are also regarded as the best 3 manufacturers in the industry. We do not sell SunPower for various reasons, but we do sell REC & LG.
  • Dual junction box split panel to severely reduce the impact of If part of the panel becomes shaded the other half of the panel can operate as normal without being affected by the shade on the other half of the panel.
  • 2mm Self-cleaning solar glass with anti-reflective surface treatment.
  • Five bus bars & superior contact between the cells and metal fingers increases electrical
  • The N-Peak has introduced a new frame design with support bars across the back of the panel. This increases the strength of the panel enormously. We have seen cheaper panels warp over time. This leads to damage within the cell and therefore reduced production. REC has come out with one of the strongest panels in the industry.
  • Vertically integrated production line ensures superior quality and
  • FANTASTIC WARRANTY: 20-years Product Warranty as standard, but with SolarWide you get an extra 5 years as SolarWide is a REC Solar Professional. This makes it 25 years Product Warranty altogether! Plus, a 25-year linear power output warranty (98% after the first year and only 0.5% p.a. thereafter). For more information visit www.recgroup.com
