REC’s new manufacturing plant in Singapore has produced its first commercial product with the REC peak energy module. Available worldwide for purchase, the module is expected to give more power per square inch meter, stemming from design improvements.
“The REC Peak Energy Module is a solid investment for customers in the commercial, residential, and utility segments, helping REC to become a leading module producer”, said John Andersen, Jr., executive VP of REC Solar and group COO.
In REC’s new design, three bus bars and enhanced contact between the cell and metal fingers is shown to improve electrical flow to 9W. Additionally, using Sunarc’s technology, energy production has increased by 2%. The modules are considered easy to install and are touted as being able to support a large mechanical load.
