Originally published on CleanTechnica by James Ayre Panasonic’s solar photovoltaic HIT module production tech will pass the 20-year milestone this year, according to an email Panasonic sent to CleanTechnica. The company first debuted its patented, high-efficiency photovoltaic module back in 1997 and has since produced more than 18 million HIT modules. These solar photovoltaic modules make […]

Originally published on CleanTechnica by Zachary Shahan To be fair, we don’t yet know what Donald Trump’s precise climate approach will be, but it seems all but guaranteed that he will slow and obstruct climate action and will do a “great deal” to increase pollution and CO2 emissions from the out-of-date oil, coal, and gas industries. This is idiotic not […]
Panasonic plans to deepen its ties to Tesla if the merger with SolarCity is approved in November. It will take over manufacturing of solar cells and solar panels at the Buffalo Gigafactory and supply Tesla with up to 10,000 solar panels a day.
Panasonic manufactures a line of advanced hetero-junction solar panels that are up to 25% more efficient that other panels of similar size. The benefit to customers who choose Panasonic HIT solar panels is more electricity generation per square foot. That allows homeowners to maximize the output of a rooftop solar installation.
Originally published on The Handleman Post. By Clayton Handleman Not so long ago, Sunpower’s 20+% efficiency modules were seen as high end niche products. Last week SolarCity announced that it had leapfrogged that benchmark with its 22% modules currently rolling off of its 100 MW lines and soon to be rolling off its 1 GW […]
A new Panasonic solar panel has established a new world record for efficiency, converting 22.5% of sunlight into electricity for more power per square foot.
Originally published on EdenKeeper.org. With a population of about 700 people, the village of Sone in West Timor, Indonesia, is famous throughout the region for its production of beautiful, traditional fabrics. Located close to a mountain summit, Sone is completely off the electricity grid. With the hope of learning about the challenges of living in […]
Panasonic recently announced the launch of its high-efficiency N285 solar module into the European market, with an official presentation at the currently ongoing Ecobuild show in London (March 3–5, stand S4154). The announcement of the release of the “industry-leading” product from Panasonic Electric Works Europe isn’t in any way surprising, as the N285 solar module […]
A joint solar power project between Panasonic and Coronal has successfully installed nine solar power arrays in central California. They are located in Tulare and Kings counties. Total electricity capacity is a little over 16 MW, or enough for about 14,500 homes. The electricity generated by the solar power systems will be sent to Southern […]
Panasonic has a long history of breaking solar efficiency records. The company recently announced that it has broken an efficiency record again. Its HIT solar cell has achieved a conversion efficiency of 25.6%, a new world record and “a major increase over the previous world record for crystalline silicon-based solar cells,” as Panasonic notes. Notably, that […]
