Low Pricing for all Your Solar System Components
On-Grid and Off-Grid Systems
Electricity rates have shown a steep increase in the past year while the price of solar panels has continued its precipitous decline. If you have an area that gets sun, why not generate your own solar power and give yourself the certainty of knowing what your future electricity costs will be? Solar panels have a long life expectancy and their warranty for power output is 25 years — definitely a long term, reliable investment. Whatever the future of energy, generating your own power gives you peace of mind!

REC280TP : Quality and Performance
End of Year Sale: REC280TP only $0.68 per watt
REC, a Norwegian solar manufacturing company, has made a gigantic leap forward in the efficiency and utilization of solar cells with their new 280 watt TwinPeak Module. PID (potential induced degradation) is an undesirable property of some solar modules. Having many solar modules in series with high voltage can cause a large electric potential in the module which results in current leakage that travels between the solar cell and components in the module. This can result in severe power reduction called PID. High Voltage systems are becoming very popular, but along with humidity and high temperatures, high voltage can increase the susceptibility of PV modules to PID. The type of glass and backsheet are some of the important considerations when trying minimize PID.
REC panels are free of any performance-inhibiting potential-induced degradation. Other manufacturers’ panels tested with a voltage bias of 1000 volts and hi humidity have experienced up to a 50% loss in output. In addition, with REC, you won’t have the static electricity problem as with some of the high efficiency N panels.
REC is a well established manufacturing company that stands a good chance of being around for the length of their warranty — an important consideration when deciding which solar modules to use.
Rigorous quality control is applied throughout the REC panel production process, from cells to modules. The REC 280TP TwinPeak module uses 6 strings of 20 cells, laminated behind high-transparency glass with an anti-reflective surface treatment giving these modules an efficiency of up to 16.7%. A power output tolerance of -0/+5W guarantees you the power you pay for and minimum mismatch losses.
