Panasonic Solar Panels

Panasonic Solar Panels


Since 1975, Panasonic has been developing and manufacturing high-quality photovoltaic products. Panasonic began producing their patented HIT solar cells in the 1990s. Using HIT solar cells, Panasonic modules are known for high-performance and high power output, achieving cell conversion efficiency up to 21.6%. Available solely from Panasonic, HIT (Hetero-junction with Intrinsic Thin Layer) solar cells are hybrids of monocrystalline silicon surrounded by ultra-thin amorphous silicon layers. As temperature rises, HIT panels produce 10% or more electricity (kWh) than conventional crystalline silicon modules. Panasonic HIT solar panels are ideal for grid-connected residential or commercial systems. The silicon wafers in Panasonic HIT modules are Made in the USA.


Ultra High Efficiency & Superior Real World Performance

HIT Power Solar panels are leaders in sunlight conversion efficiency. Hybrid cells produce the highest output on cloudy days, up to 21.6% cell conversion efficiency and the most PTC Power 223.5W with highest PTC/STC Ratio 93%.

Superior Temperature Performance

As temperatures rise, HIT Power solar panels produce 10% or more electricity (kWh) than conventional crystalline silicon solar panels at the same temperature.

Power Guarantee

The power ratings for HIT Power panels guarantee customers receive 100% of the nameplate rated power (or more) at the time of purchase, enabling owners to generate more kWh per rated Watt, quicken investments returns, and help realize complete customer satisfaction.

American Made Quality

Silicon wafers located inside HIT solar panels are made in Oregon, and the panels are assembled in an IS0 9001 (quality), 14001 (environment), and 18001 (safety) certified factory. Unique Eco-packaging minimizes cardboard waste at the job site. The panels have a Limited 20-Year Power Output and 10-Year Product Workmanship Warranty

HIT Double Bifacial Solar Panel

Bifacial Effect - The back face of a HIT Double panel generates electricity from ambient light reflected off surrounding surfaces, and combines with power from the front face of the panel. Depending upon system design and site albedo, this results in up to 30% higher power generation (more kWh) per square foot.

Application Possibilities - Architectural, Awnings, Balconies, Bus Shelters, Walkway Covers, Deck & Porch Coverings, Canopies, Carports, Trellises, Fences, Facades, Siding, Trellises, Tracking Systems, BIPV, Ground Mount, Roof Mount, Skylights, and More!

Valuable Features - HIT Double panels operate silently and have no moving parts. A double glass structure allows some sunlight to penetrate portions of the panel, creating brilliant light and shadows for aesthetic and architectural applications. HIT Double panels are perfect for areas with performance-based incentives and renewable energy credits. 

About the Panasonic Solar Business and HIT Solar Panels 

Formerly known as Sanyo HIT Solar, Panasonic began in 1975 with the development of amorphous silicon solar cells. Panasonic has more than 35 years of history in the solar industry. Since that time, Panasonic has continued to carry out leading research and development for solar cells, and has developed further technical abilities and gained experience as it has had its panels installed in a large number of PV systems around the world, especially in the public and industrial markets.

More recently, in 1997, Panasonic released its HIT solar modules; HIT stands for heterojunction with intrinsic thin-layer, and the solar cells used are a hybrid with a unique structure comprised of a thin mono-crystalline silicon wafer surrounded by ultra-thin amorphous silicon layers. HIT solar panels are known for their high conversion efficiency and excellent temperature characteristics, allowing HIT panels to generate more power throughout the year, even during peak summer months, compared to other types of crystalline modules.
