A solar panel can absorb the sun’s rays as a source of energy to generate electricity.
Jinko Solar is a New York Stock Exchange listed company, producing solar wafers, cells and modules since 2006. They place a high value on quality, and their 10-year product warranty and 25-year power linear warranty reflects that. They are also listed as a Tier 1 solar panel on the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Tier 1 list of solar panels, which means Jinko have provided own-brand, own-manufactured products to six different projects, which have been financed non-recourse by six different (non-development) banks, in the past two years.
Jinko solar modules are available in 270W, 290W and 300W, as well as 265W with Maxim integrated optimisers.
REC was founded in Norway in 1996, and since then has produced over 25 million solar panels. They are also a Tier 1 solar panel, and have a 10 year product warranty and 25 year power linear warranty. The REC panels we receive in Australia are manufactured in the REC plant in Singapore. REC have a rigorous testing regime which ensures all panels are of the highest quality. The standard size REC panel we use is 270W.
REC also have a solar panel series called twin peak, which is designed for even more efficiency and more power output per square meter than a standard panel. The way REC achieves this is by using “half-cut” solar cells, with 6 strings of 20 cells in series (compared to 3 strings of 20 cells in a standard panel), as well as a coating on the back of the panel that can reflect some light back on the solar cell, resulting in more power being produced. REC twin peak series range from 265W to 300W.
