Out of nowhere in 2019 the REC TwinPeak 2 Series went from being a somewhat respected solar panel option to almost one of the most appealing solar panel options available. What happened? A resounding shift brought on by two major changes.
Make and model: REC TwinPeak 2 Series.
Variants: 275 / 280 / 285 / 290 / 300W.
CONTENTS - The information you want, fast!
The evolution of an InterSolar 2015 award winning panel, the REC TwinPeak by today’s standard has become renowned as product of high-end innovation and now more so affordability for such distinguished innovation. True, not a mono-crystalline solution, the renewed appeal now possess unequaled characteristics unmatched by any other
Will you ever find a better ranked multicrystalline solar panel to pass the Solar Review Module Assessment Design Criteria? Armed with an Intersolar Award, most probably not. The REC TwinPeak 2 Series presents a better overall design than many monocrystalline solar panels available.
REC SolarTwinPeak 2 Series Design; SUPERIOR
- Up to 6-wire bus bar.
- PERC enhanced.
- Glass-laminate (White).
- InterSolar award 2015.
- DNV-GL certified.
Durability of the REC TwinPeak 2 Series presents as VERY GOOD when subjected to the Solar Review Module Assessment Criteria. Notably, Salt mist and Hail resistance is high-calibre when compared to the industry average, areas of intense wind loading and desert conditions (thermal cycles) may seek greater specifications.
REC SolarTwinPeak 2 Series Durability; VERY GOOD
- Snow load 5400Pa.
- Front wind load 2400Pa.
- Rear wind load 2400Pa.
- Damp heat testing 2000Hrs.
- Thermal cycle testing 200+Hrs.
- PID Free.
- Salt mist resistance certification
IEC 61701 (Severity 6).
- Amonia resistance certification
- 35mm hail impact at 23m/s.
For the multicrystalline cell type, temperature coefficient of the REC TwinPeak 2 Series should be considered OUTSTANDING. Although a limited 18% maximum module efficiency of up to 18%, the efficiency qualities which surround that are respectable. That of which includes a +5W (3%) positive power tolerance.
REC SolarTwinPeak 2 Series Efficiency; VERY GOOD
- 18% Maximum module efficiency.
- -0.36%°C Temperature coefficient.
- 0/3% Power tolerance.
A common solar panel performance score for internationally respected solar module brands. The REC TwinPeak 2 Series pulls no hidden surprises in relation to promised performance overtime. 2.5% degradation within the first year is admirable. 0.7% degradation each year after has become the minimum expected from a linear performance guarantee.
REC SolarTwinPeak 2 Series Performance; SUPERIOR
- 2.5% degradation in the 1st year.
- 0.7% degradation per annum.
- 25-year linear performance warranty.
- Parts & service performance warranty.
THE RENEWED APPEAL. A key factor as to why one would select the REC TwinPeak 2 series when combined with the following Solar Review Module Assessment Criteria category. The below guarantee pitches the REC TwinPeak 2 Series amongst the industries best in terms of manufacturer support over time.
REC SolarTwinPeak 2 Series Guarantee; OUTSTANDING
- 25-year warranty.
- Parts & service warranty.
- Authorised installer network with additional end-user benefits.
Forget the basic poly vs mono debate when it comes to the REC TwinPeak 2 Series. Overall, the REC TwinPeak Series is a well rounded solar panel which out-specifies a majority of monocrystalline technologies available Further proof that innovative InterSolar Award wining solar panels endure the test of time.
REC SolarTwinPeak 2 Series Overall; SUPERIOR
- Design 4.4
- Durability 3.6
- Efficiency 3.8
- Performance 4.1
- Guarantee 4.8
