Panasonic HIT modules combine a thin single crystal wafer with an ultra-thin amorphous silicon layer. They are thus 28% more efficient than the market average. This means greater energy recovery on a smaller roof area or, alternatively, fewer modules on the same area, thus lowering installation material and labour costs.
Panasonic HIT Solar modules provide the highest reliability and maximum security for full energy yields over te system's entire life cycle. Out of 1,332 million modules supplied in Europe alone, fewer than 50 gave rise to complaint (as of Dec. 2009).
More than30 years experience in solar technology as earned Panasonic the reputation for the highest reliability with their customers. Panasonic has been manufacturing silkar cells since 1978. Their high performance and long life HIT modules have been produced since 1997 for a constantly growing market.
How It Works
The HIT technology - Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin Layer - is a revolutionary Panasonic development. The HIT solar cells consist of a thin single crystal water coated with an ultra-thin amorphous silicon layer. The surface loss frequently seen in solar cells is reduced, resulting in a high level of performance. The advantage of this technology resides in that both amorphous and single crystal silicon are used. This achieves higher efficiency.
