Panasonic home solar panels are backed by an industry-leading parts and performance warranty that guarantees minimum power output of 90.76% after 25 years.

HIT® AC Series Module combines the efficiency of HIT® solar panels with the intelligence of Enphase microinverters. An Enphase IQ 7X microinverter with Individual MPPT tracking (Module-level Power Point Tracker) is integrated with HIT® high efficiency solar technology to deliver maximum power production from every roof size and shape. The AC Series alternative energy source offers extreme efficiency and high power output for residential solar systems. Panasonic solar panels are backed by our industry-leading performance warranty that guarantees minimum power output of 90.76% after 25 years.

HIT N330 Features

  • Enhanced New Frame Design (40mm)
  • Pyramid cell structure design for optimal sunlight capture
  • Low temperature coefficient of -0.258%/°C produces higher power output at high temperatures
  • Heterojunction technology with ultra-thin amorphous silicon layers reduce electron loss
  • Water drainage frame design prevents rain accumulation, eliminates water stains from panel surface
  • Complete 25-year warranty on linear power output, parts, and product workmanship
High Efficiency at High Temperatures
As temperature increases, HIT continues to perform at high levels due to the industry leading temperature coefficient of -0.258% /°C. No other module even comes close to our temperature characteristics. That means more energy throughout the day.
25 year warranty
25 Year Product and Performance Warranty
Industry leading 2 year product workmanship and performance warranty is backed by a century old company- Panasonic. Power output is guaranteed to 90.76% after 25 years, far greater than other companies.
quality reliability

Quality and Reliability
Panasonic’s vertical integration, 20 years of experience manufacturing HIT® and 20 internal tests beyond those mandated by current standards provides extreme quality assurance.

higher efficiency
Higher Efficiency 19.7%
Enables higher power output and greater energy yields. HIT® provides maximum production for your limited roof space.
Low PID, Low LID
Low Degradation
HIT “N-type” cells result in extremely Low Light Induced Degradation (LID) and zero Potential Induced Degradation (PID) which supports reliability and longevity. This technology reduces annual degradation to 0.26% compare to 0.70% in conventional panels, guaranteeing more power for the long haul.
enhanced frame
Enhanced Frame Design
A new 40mm frame increases durability and strength, being able to handle loads of up to 5400Pa. Also, the water drainage system gives rain water and snow melt a place to go, reducing water stains and soiling. Less dirt on the module means more sunlight getting through to generate power.

Panasonic HIT N330 VBHN330SA17 Solar Panel Review

HIT hetereojunction solar panel cell layers

Panasonic’s unique heterojunction technology uses ultra-thin amorphous silicon layers. These thin dual layers reduce losses, resulting in higher energy output than conventional panels.

bifacial solar panel cell

Advanced bifacial cell designed for increased energy output. The cell utilizes sunlight reflected back from the rear side material which captures more light and converted into energy.


HIT solar cell efficiency
The 19.7% efficiency of the HIT N330 enables a higher output and lower specific installation and balance-of-system costs.

100% Panasonic, 100% HIT

Proudly featuring Panasonic's original invention, the heterojunction solar cell. With over 1 billion cells produced commercially over 18 years, 25 years after the breakthrough in the development and looking back to over 40 years of experience in solar. Panasonic really offers you a 25-year guarantee you can trust.

  • Vertically integrated in-house manufacturing of wafer, cell, and module
