REC Group begins mass production of Alpha Series solar panel in Singapore

Tagged with: | | |

REC Group, a Norwegian solar energy company, has started mass production of its REC Alpha Series solar panel in Singapore for which it has invested a total of $150 million.

The solar energy company also developed a new Industry 4.0 cell fab at the Singaporean solar panel manufacturing plant. The expansion gives an additional 600MW of heterojunction (HJT) cell and module capacity for the company whose total module capacity in Singapore is now 1.8GW per year.

Steve O’Neil – REC Group CEO said: “Our dedicated goal is to empower consumers. And we know that only with big leaps, the global energy transition can thrive. Alpha is a crucial tool for homeowners to do exactly this and gain energy autonomy.”

Launched initially at Intersolar Europe in May 2019, the REC Alpha Series solar panel was presented across other major industry events across the US, Japan, and India.

According to REC Group, first rooftop systems produced from initial production batches have been installed already in Italy, the US, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.

The Norwegian solar energy company claimed that the REC Alpha Series solar panel is the ideal rooftop module for homeowners to reduce their electricity bills drastically.

The REC Alpha Series is further claimed to be the most powerful 60-cell solar panel in the world, generating up to 380 watt-peak (Wp). This translates to a power density of 217 W/m², thereby giving 20% more power than conventional solar panels in the same area.

The new solar panel can perfectly work in cold and hot climate conditions and is said to come with a super-strong frame, that makes it withstand even the harshest weathers.
