Stunning aesthetics, spectacular performance: REC Group starts production of new N-Peak Black Series

Munich, Germany March 20, 2019
REC Group, the largest European brand for solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, demonstrates how elegant solar panels can look as it begins production of its new N-Peak Black Series. As well as offering superb power reaching 325 watt peak through the world’s most efficient crystalline silicon technology, the stylish aesthetics of REC’s new full-black panel are designed to create a handsome, sleek and seamless solar array on residential roofs. Production is at REC’s advanced vertically integrated manufacturing facility in Singapore, and the first N-Peak Black panels are due for shipments in April. This is the fourth REC innovation to roll off production lines since August 2018 and testifies to the brand’s position as an innovator and technology leader.

“Panel aesthetics matter more than ever. With solar uptake on the rise everywhere, more and more of our commercial and residential clients are looking for solar installations that look as great as they perform,” says Cemil Seber, Vice President Global Marketing and Product Management at REC Group. “The new premium full black version of our N-Peak Series delivers on this requirement. It offers first-class power efficiency – and looks simply fantastic.”

The entire REC N-Peak Series takes REC’s multiple award-winning TwinPeak technology into a totally new generation and is the world’s first solar panel to combine n-type mono half-cut cells with a twin-panel design. The full black version delivers high power output of up to 325 watt peak and is ideal for customers with limited roof space or partial shading. Its super-strong frame carries loads of up to 7,000 Pa. Thanks to REC’s frame design, the panel offers highly flexible installation options.

Looks great, performs brilliantly – guaranteed
With REC Group’s power and product warranties, customers can enjoy the power and aesthetics of their N-Peak Black Series for longer. The new panel comes with REC’s new industry-topping 20-year product warranty, and with an extra five years for installations carried out by REC-certified Solar Professionals. REC also guarantees a final warranted power output of at least 86% after 25 years of operation, so that customers can now look forward to even greater guaranteed output over the lifetime of the panels. Not that customers are likely to need their warranty: REC Group has by far the lowest claims rate in the industry, where less than one solar panel returns for every 10,000 panels produced.

The new REC N-Peak Black has been on stage for the very first time at the trade show Solar Solutions Amsterdam in The Netherlands, March 19-21, and will be demonstrated also at Smart Energy in Sydney, Australia, April 2-3, and at Intersolar Europe in Munich, Germany, May 15-17.
