REC Group has started production of the REC N-Peak 3 Black Series for the U.S. rooftop market, the third generation of its n-type TOPCon cell-based solar panels. Production is happening at REC’s Industry 4.0 manufacturing site in Singapore, with first U.S. shipments planned to arrive in January 2023.
The new N-Peak has improved power density compared to its predecessor and will give consumers higher savings on electricity bills and carbon emissions. REC N-Peak 3 Black comes with nominal power of 400 Wp, REC’s patented split cell and junction box technology and full black aesthetics.
The manufacturer continues to build on its Twin Panel Design and 30mm thin frame with support bars in the back for a long-term durability, even with loads of up to 7000 Pa.
This announcement comes only two months after the production start of the REC Alpha Pure-R solar panel, which features large G12 heterojunction half-cut cells in a compact rooftop panel.
Like all REC products, the new solar panel is eligible for the extended REC ProTrust warranty, including up to 25 years product, performance and labor warranty for systems completed by REC Certified Solar Professional installers.
REC guarantees power output in year 25 of the panel’s service life of at least 92% – ensuring high performance for the long-term.
