Panasonic is one of the leading manufacturers of premium electronic devices, technologies, and solutions, including solar panels. Panasonic solar panels are ranked among the best tier-one solar panels for industrial, commercial, and residential use. They convert more sunlight into electric energy and last longer than most other solar panels.
Why & How Do Panasonic Solar Panels Stand Out?
Panasonic is the pioneer of hetero-injunction (HIT) solar panel modules. The HIT module technology supplements the traditional crystalline cells with amorphous cells.
Panasonic solar panels feature a sandwich design, with the crystalline silicon layer sandwiched between two amorphous silicon layers. The amorphous layers reduce the heat and energy lost by the crystalline cells, making Panasonic solar panels more efficient than most other brands.
Panasonic also utilizes half-cut HIT technology in its EverVolt solar panels series. This new technology entails splicing the PV solar cells into two. Reducing PV cells’ size reduces their heat and energy loss, making the solar panels more efficient.
Overall, here is a brief overview of how Panasonic solar panels perform under the four quality assessment standards:
Solar panel efficiency is its ability to capture and convert sunlight into electrical energy. Efficiency is a crucial metric as it determines whether or not the solar panels will generate enough energy to satisfy your needs.
Panasonic solar panels’ efficiency ranges between 19.1% and 21.7%. In contrast, most other solar panels’ efficiency ranges between 14% and 18%. It is worth noting that solar panels with efficiency ratings above 20% are considered premium efficiency, and 22.6% is currently the highest efficiency rating.
Solar panel performance refers to how well it converts sunlight into electricity under extreme conditions. The assumption that solar panels’ energy production increases as the sun’s temperature and intensity increase is wrong. Instead, solar panels produce more energy when the sun shines at 250C (770F). Any fluctuation from this optimal temperature range reduces the solar panels’ energy production capacity.
Panasonic solar panels have the lowest temperature co-efficient, rated at -0.26. Their HIT solar technology also reduces their heat and energy loss.
Panasonic solar panel models and series vary. Overall, all Panasonic solar panels cost $2.44 to $3.10 per watt. However, the actual price is lower when factoring in rebates and incentives, including the 26% federal tax credit on the price of solar panels. It is also essential to factor in installation and maintenance costs.
Panasonic Solar Panels: Warranty
Most solar panels are designed to last for 10 and 30 years with the proper maintenance, and most manufacturers offer 12-year warranties. Ideally, Panasonic solar panels are designed to last for more than 25 years. Pana
