Sanyo Solar Panels
Sanyo HIT solar panel technology uses less space per watt than most other brands. These solar panels have an attractive uniform black color.
SANYO silicon wafers located inside HIT solar panels are made in California and Oregon (from October 2009), and the panels are assembled in an ISO 9001 (quality), 14001 (environment), and 18001 (safety) certified factory. Unique eco-packing minimizes cardboard waste at the job site. The panels have a Limited 20-Year Power Output and 5-Year Product Workmanship Warranty.
Superior Temperature Attributes
HIT solar cells have superior temperature characteristics compared to conventional crystalline silicon solar cells. As outside temperatures rise, HIT solar cells produce more electricity (kWh) than conventional crystalline silicon solar cells at the same temperature.
Environment Friendly Process
Sanyo HIT solar cells are 0.2mm thick, using less silicon materials than conventional solar cells at about 0.35mm.

SANYO Commences Operations at the New Shiga Factory for Solar Module Production Responding to expected growth in domestic market demand
Tokyo, August 5, 2008
SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. (SANYO) announces that it has completed construction of the Shiga Plant at its Shiga facilities (Ohtsu City, Shiga Prefecture) which was constructed for the assembly of HIT solar cell modules as part of continuing plans to expand and develop its Solar business.
The Shiga Plant will have an initial production capacity of 40 MW, and SANYO will consider expanding the production capacity of the factory upon further review of market trends and demand. SANYO currently produces HIT solar cells at two factories, at the Nishikinohama Factory (Kaizuka City, Osaka) and Shimane SANYO Electric Co. (Unnan City, Shimane Prefecture). The modules, or panels, are then assembled at two domestic facilities (Nishikinohama Factory and the Tokyo Plant) and two overseas facilities (Hungary and Monterrey (Mexico) Factories). With the new operation at the Shiga Plant which will be one of the major bases for module production, SANYO will respond to domestic market demands, including increases in demand in the future.
Outline of the Solar Business Shiga Factory
- Factory address: 1-1-1, Seta, Ohtsu City, Shiga Prefecture
- Building area: 7000m2 (new factory area)
- Production capacity: Annual capacity of 40MW (FY2008)
- Investment amount: Approx. 2 billion yen
- Ancillary facilities: Solar power generation system 50 kW
About Sanyo Solar
Sanyo's solar division was established in 1976 in Carson, California.
Working toward a better future for humankind, Solec creates products that convert the sun's energy into electric power.
Since 1967 Solec solar electric modules have been used worldwide in urban and remote locations. From major metropolitan areas to small villages, Solec's cost effective modules work dependably and efficiently.
In 1994, Solec combined forces with SANYO Electric, Japan. Both companies share a commitment to excellence and making strides toward improvements in the solar energy industry. These are exemplified by the numerous patents held by the companies and proprietary advances that have been made. Further, in our efforts to manufacture a superior product, Solec's modern equipment uses high quality materials.
Solec was a pioneer in developing major improvements in crystalline silicon photovoltaic (PV) technology. Today many high-power PV applications utilize crystalline silicon single crystal cells and photovoltaic modules.
In 1997, SANYO introduced a product called HIT Power 21™ (Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin layer). This 21st century hybrid product combines the single crystalline cell with amorphous silicon. The result has been astounding. The HIT™ cells have the capability of achieving an incredible 20% efficiency rating in laboratory conditions.
Solec continues to find ways to harness the energy of sun to provide alternative energy. Their goal is to preserve our environment by bringing the sun down to earth.
