REC Alpha Has Arrived.

The World’s Most Powerful 60 Cell Solar Panel is available now.

Manufactured in Singapore, the game-changing REC Alpha has now arrived in our National Distribution Centre and available for shipment to you!

What is the REC Alpha?

The REC Alpha is a 365W solar panel packaged in a 60-cell footprint.

Heterojunction (HJT) cell technology

 

  • No LID = no power loss; you get the power you pay for
  • Leading temperature coefficient means more energy as temperature rises
  • Maximum power for maximum savings and accelerated return on investment
  • Its leading power density (217 watts/m²) is ideal to get the most from limited spaces
  • Over 20% more power on your roof compared to conventional panels

Advanced cell connection technology

 

  • Increased number of wires greatly improves flow of electricity current
  • Eliminating invasive soldering removes risk of cell damage or microcracks for long-lasting high performance
  • Stylish looks thanks to thin, barely-visible wires and uniformly black-colored cells
  • Full-black variant is a design masterpiece and the most elegant feature for your home
  • Solder-free cells reduces lead content by a colossal 81%
  • Environmentally-friendly manufacturing drastically reduces carbon footprint

REC Alpha empowers homeowners to drastically

reduce their carbon footprint

A 6.1 kW installation (~16 x 380 Wp REC Alpha panels) creates over 7,200 kWh of clean energy per year. This cuts CO2 emissions of a home by 4.3 tons per year. Equivalent to:

REC’s iconic Twin panel design

 

  • Award-winning design, pioneered by REC
  • Panel split into two ‘Twin’ sections
  • Reduces internal resistance for more power and reliability
  • Continued energy production in shaded conditions means you see higher energy yields

Super-strong frame

 

  • Support bars protect cells and glass from bending under load
  • Allows extreme loads up to 7000 Pa
  • Panels maintain high performance levels over the installation lifetime
  • 30 mm frame height makes panel easier to handle
  • Frame design allows optimized transportation: more panels/pallet = more panels/container = fewer trucks on the road = more savings

Industry-leading warranty

 

  • 25 year product warranty*: covers any panel defects
  • 25 year performance warranty: ensures panels perform exactly as they’re expected to – every year for 25 years
  • 25 year labor warranty*: gives added protection in case a panel needs to be serviced
  • At least 92% of nameplate power in year 25; an industry best
  • Unprecedented savings, more economic security, and greater energy autonomy for consumers
