REC Group Expands U.S. Product Offering With New 72-Cell Solar Panel for Large Commercial and Utility-Scale Markets

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/14 -- REC Group, a leading global provider of solar energy solutions, announced today that it will begin shipping its new high-quality, trade compliant 72-cell, 1000-volt (DC) solar panels to the United States by the end of 2014. Target markets for the Peak Energy 72 Series panels include large commercial/industrial and utility-scale PV power plant projects.

The benefits of deploying solar arrays equipped with 72-cell panels, 1000-VDC modules include lower installation costs, the use of fewer balance of systems components, and less overall cost per installed watt. As a result of these and other advantages, a growing majority of solar projects over 500 kilowatts in size in development or under construction in the United States will employ the larger, higher voltage panels, according to GTM Research.

REC Group is a global manufacturer of multicrystalline-silicon wafers, cells and solar panels, with a state-of-the-art integrated and fully automated manufacturing facility in Singapore. REC's commitment to quality is demonstrated by its very low products claim rate where less than 300 panels are returned from the field out of the more than 3 million panels manufactured every year. The Peak Energy 72 Series panels, like all of REC's highly reliable products, are backed by the company's linear 25-year power output guarantee, and feature enhanced power production per square foot, robust and durable design, easy installation, and optimized performance in all sunlight conditions.

"The addition of the Peak Energy 72 Series to our U.S. product offering is the latest example of REC's strong commitment to one of the fastest growing solar markets in the world," said Arndt E. Lutz, senior vice president of REC Group in U.S. "Our expanding agreements with leading residential solar installers and PPA providers have enhanced our position as a competitively priced, U.S.-trade compliant supplier to the residential and small commercial sectors. This new, more powerful panel provides a compelling alternative to customers developing and building larger commercial and utility projects."

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
