Evolution follows revolution: Production start of the iconic REC TwinPeak 5 solar panels

Munich, Germany November 21, 2022
REC Group, an international pioneering solar energy company, announces the production start of the REC TwinPeak 5 Series, the fifth generation of its multiple-award-winning TwinPeak solar panels. The new product improves on the strengths that have made the TwinPeak family such a success, including REC’s revolutionary Twin Design. Back in 2014, REC introduced for the first time its patented split cell and junction box technology, setting a new industry standard. The launch of the new TwinPeak generation is REC’s third product introduction in 2022 only. REC’s continuous successful innovations are key in the expanding New Energy business of its parent company, the Fortune Global 500® Reliance Industries Limited.

Building on the success of its predecessors, the new TwinPeak 5 with its improved power output of up to 410 Wp, will give consumers higher savings on electricity bills and carbon emissions. Available in both white and black backsheet variants, the REC TwinPeak 5 Series features 132 half-cut monocrystalline p-type cells with multi-busbar connections. REC’s meanwhile popular 30 mm thin frame and support bars in the back allow the panel to withstand heavy loads of up to 7000 Pa, ensuring a strong longevity even under rough climate conditions.

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. The guaranteed longevity of the new REC TwinPeak is an active contribution to less resource consumption and demonstrates REC’s push for a more sustainable solar industry.

Production of the REC TwinPeak 5 just started at REC’s Industry 4.0 manufacturing site in Singapore, with first shipments arriving in Asia-Pacific in December and in Europe in January 2023. More information about the new REC TwinPeak 5 Series can be found here.
