REC Alpha Series Solar Panels

World’s Most Powerful 60-cell Solar Panel

REC Alpha Series climber

REC Solar's revolutionary Alpha Series achieves incredible levels of efficiency, power and strength.

Unique Cell Technology & Patented Panel Design

Emerging from REC’s leadership in half-cut cell technology, the Alpha Series is built around 120 half-cut heterojunction cells (HJT) and advanced connection technology, designed by engineering experts from Germany and Singapore.

With HJT, REC combines the benefits of N-Type monocrystalline silicon solar cells with those of thin film technologies for much higher efficiency and energy yield, even at higher temperatures.

Alpha Series Variants

REC Alpha Series solar panels come standard with black-colored half-cut monocrystalline cells and a black frame. In addition, a full-black variant with a black backsheet (Alpha Black) is available, so that you can select your preferred look to give you the ideal combination of high power and aesthetics.

Powerful Solar Panel = Strong Added Value

The Alpha delivers the world’s best power density on a 60-cell module, a key consideration when space is tight – like on any rooftop. With the REC Alpha Series, customers will get over 20 percent more power from the same area and the same number of panels – or, put other way, the same energy output from less space. This reduces the Balance of System (BoS) costs. In addition to better economics, customers can also look forward to an increase in the value of their property: several studies in various countries show that a premium solar installation on the roof is adding value to the property and is a highly desired extra for home-buyers, not least due to the better energy performance rating.

Zero LID

The loss of power generation capacity experienced by a standard solar panel on its first exposure to light is known as Light Induced Degradation (LID). This is a result of the combination of boron and oxygen inside a cell and causes a permanent drop in a standard panel’s maximum power. Not with Alpha solar panels!

The n-type technology in REC’s Alpha Series stops these two elements from mixing at any level, thereby fully preventing any occurrence of LID. Thus, the panel’s power remains the same as when it left the REC factory – meaning you always get exactly the power levels that you paid for.

Half-cut Cell Technology

The unique REC ‘Twin’ cell layout design, where the panel is split into two identical and mirrored sections, enables the continued production of energy, even when part of the module or array is shaded, further contributing to its high energy yields compared to standard panels.

Super-strong Frame Design

REC Alpha solar panels feature extra support bars across the rear of the panel, greatly boosting its strength and durability, and allowing loads of up to 7000 Pa – far exceeding the 5400 offered by conventional panels. Combined with a 30 mm frame height, this frame design enables flexible installation options, making overcoming every obstacle easier during system design.

Alpha Meets New-build Energy Directives

The Alpha’s industry-beating energy efficiency will make it far easier for new-build owners to meet Zero Energy performance directives like in California. For rooftop installations with limited available space, high power solar panels are a key enabler for PV powered building concepts.

Warranty

All of the advantages of the REC Alpha Series combine to guarantee customers 20 years of product workmanship and a high 92% power output over its 25 year warranted power lifetime.

25 YEAR LINEAR POWER OUTPUT WARRANTY

Maximum annual power degression of 0.25% p.a. Guarantees 92% of power after 25 years. See warranty conditions for further details.

20 YEAR PRODUCT WARRANTY

Promises that the workmanship and materials of the panels themselves maintain their superior quality for 20 years.
