With up to 430 Wp in less than two square meters, the new REC Alpha Pure-R hits the sweet spot in terms of power, size, weight and maneuverability. REC’s latest panel innovation builds on the lead-free, RoHS-compliant REC Alpha Pure series, which just won the prestigious 2022 Intersolar award.
MUNICH, May 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — REC Group, a pioneering international solar energy company headquartered in Norway, has launched its latest high-efficiency solar panel at Intersolar Europe 2022. With its high-power-density innovations, the new REC Alpha Pure-R marks another step up from the multi-award winning REC Alpha family. Just two days ago, the REC Alpha Pure, launched in April 2021, won the 2022 Intersolar Award. Featuring G12 large format heterojunction (HJT) cells in a patented panel design, REC’s latest product delivers up to 430Wp output power, while maintaining the module under two square meters of surface. This makes the new product ideal for residential installations where space is limited. The REC Alpha Pure-R is expected to enter production in August 2022 on REC’s new production lines in Singaporedoubling the capacity of REC’s Alpha product line from 600 MW to 1.2 GW.
Wafers and G12 cells in a compact format
At 210 x 210mm, the wafers and G12 cells are larger, which means they produce more power. However, most of the resulting modules are significantly larger, which is why to date G12 solar panels have been deployed primarily in large commercial and utility installations. With REC’s new panel design, the Alpha Pure-R shows that the G12 can also work well for residential rooftop installations.
Jan Enno BickerCEO of REC Group, comments: “The REC Alpha Pure-R is truly ideal in terms of size, weight, power and handling. With the new panel, we have again managed to pack more power into a compact panel. . , enabling homeowners to be more energy independent and contributing to the global energy transition.”
Innovations for maximized energy
The REC Alpha Pure-R comes with 9 amps current making it compatible with various modern MLPE devices giving installers more system design options to maximize homeowners power. Also new is the four-piece junction box that takes REC’s iconic Twin Design one step further, dividing the panel into four strings and reducing the size of the sections that turn off in shaded conditions. As a result, the panel can generate even more energy when partially shaded.
Hit the sweet spot
The new REC Alpha Pure-R achieves 430 Wp in a compact 1.93 m² panel, which means it comes with a peak power density of 223 W/m2 and can be easily handled by installers. Building on the success of the REC Alpha and Alpha Pure series, the new panel features 80 half-cut HJT cells in a zero-gap cell layout. This maximizes the power generating area of the panel and ensures a sleek, all-black appearance. Advanced cell connection technology improves current flow and eliminates invasive solders, adding to high efficiency and long-lasting performance. Additionally, the low temperature coefficient allows the solar panel to operate efficiently even on the hottest days, generating more energy for households. This makes it ideal for warmer climates or for generating as much energy as possible on sunny days. REC’s signature 30mm frame with two support bars makes the board strong enough to withstand heavy loads – up to 7,000 Pascal snow load and up to 4,000 Pascal wind load.
Added value also for the environment
The new panel features many of the strengths that have made the REC Alpha family successful and reinforce REC’s reputation as a company that takes its environmental responsibilities seriously. Like its predecessor, the REC Alpha Pure, the new panel is lead-free and RoHS compliant for less environmental impact. Following the 2020 Intersolar award for the REC Alpha series, this year’s jury recognized that the REC Alpha Pure is one of the very few lead-free solar panels on the market and as such a well-deserved winner. price.
