REC Group, an international pioneering solar energy company headquartered in Norway, announces the arrival in Australia of its best solar panel, the REC Alpha Pure-R. The first panels are going to first-movers: customers who are so convinced by the REC Alpha heterojunction technology (HJT), and REC Group’s record as an industry innovator, that they ordered long before production started.
The REC Alpha Pure-R solar panel went into production last month on new manufacturing lines at REC’s Singapore facility. The Alpha Pure-R will double REC’s Alpha HJT capacity in Singapore, from 600 MW to 1.2 GW, which underscores REC’s commitment to the future of this technology.
First Shipments Go to First Movers
The first shipments are already spoken for: well before production started, REC had already received orders for the REC Alpha Pure-R solar panel from customers in Australia. This early success testifies to the confidence of the market in REC innovations and Alpha HJT technology.
Jan Enno Bicker, CEO at REC Group, is delighted with the vote of confidence: “We made a bold move in 2019 by introducing REC Alpha as our first HJT product, in 2021 by launching the lead-free and RoHS compliant Alpha Pure, and now we are changing the game again. With the REC Alpha Pure-R, we are bringing another 600 MW of a lead-free HJT product to the market but based on larger G12 cells in a compact panel format for residential installations. The many pre-production orders confirm that our customers have full trust in REC’s innovations and our newest product hits well the demand. Now that production is underway, customers worldwide can access the power, space and environmental advantages of this new solar panel for their installations.”
Better, Not Bigger
Featuring HJT cells in the large G12 format in a patented panel design, the REC Alpha Pure-R delivers power output of up to 430 Wp, while keeping the module under two square meters in area – and shows that G12 can also work well for residential and commercial rooftop installations where space is limited. Like REC’s previous innovation and 2022 Intersolar Award winner, REC Alpha Pure, the Alpha Pure-R is lead-free and RoHS compliant, strengthening REC’s reputation as a company that takes its environmental responsibilities seriously. The low temperature coefficient keeps the solar panel running efficiently even on hotter days. Also new: the panel is divided into four strings, which reduces the size of sections that switch off under shaded conditions. As a result, the panel can generate even more energy when partially shaded. Like the other REC solar panels, the REC Alpha Pure-R is eligible for REC’s comprehensive ProTrust warranty, offering consumers up to 25 years peace of mind for product, performance and labor, subject to conditions.
Experience REC Alpha Pure-R for Yourself
The REC Alpha Pure-R will be showcased to Australian customers at All-Energy Australia end of this October. Customers are invited to attend, joining REC Group at Booth number N113 on Day One and afterwards at the Grand Networking Event to celebrate the occasion. The REC team will be on-site to share the exciting benefits of REC’s most innovative panel to date, and provide customers with the first opportunity to get up close and personal with the all new Alpha Pure-R.
