What Type of Solar Cells Does REC Sell?

REC uses polysilicon, and they convert it into wafers, wafers to solar cells and solar cells to solar panels. The type of solar cells REC sells is multicrystalline, also known as polycrystalline. These solar panels are both durable and reliable. Out of 3 million PV modules sold by REC in one year, only 300 returned from the field.

Features and Efficiency

REC solar panels deliver 16.1% efficiency. REC panels come with a robust and durable design. The frames are made of anodised aluminium. In addition, the solar cells are optimised for all weather conditions and will capture the light even in low light conditions such as sunset and sunrise. All panels come with a 3.2 mm solar glass with anti-reflection and surface treatment. Despite the impressive depth of the panels (38 mm), the maximum snow load is 550 kg/m², while the maximum wind load is 244 kg/m².
