REC, short for Renewable Energy Corporation, produce tier one solar panels and are highly regarded in the industry for product quality, reliability and their commitment to sustainability. REC is the biggest European brand of solar panels and it’s easy to understand why.
REC’s internal testing excels industry standards to ensure reliability, strong performance in extreme weather conditions, and most importantly a quality solar panel.
They have an industry leading low-claims rate, meaning than out of 4 million panels manufactured each year, just 400 might come back as claims, that’s 0.01%. For those that do, REC has proven processes in place that ensure smooth, streamlined and hassle free handling of them.
Panels in REC’s product line have an efficiency rating of 16.5% to 21.7%. The efficiency of a panel is based on how well it captures and converts sunlight into electricity. The REC twinpeak 2 panels provide you with more power output for every square meter of panels installed and with their unique twin design, they are able to generate electricity even when they are partially shaded.
REC panels deliver more power per square meter, which means you need fewer REC twinpeak panels to generate the same power. Not only do you make savings with less panels required but also installation is quicker and easier.
REC panels come with a 20 year product warranty and a 25 year linear power output warranty, PLUS because we’re REC Partners, you can get an additional 5 years on your product warranty by having your REC panels installed by Energy Wired. Competitors product warranties can be as little as 10 years on materials, which positions REC with a strong product guarantee in the solar panel market.
Sustainable products and production
If you’re interested in getting solar panels installed, it’s fair to say that you are conscious of the environment, but unless your panels are disposed of properly at the end of their life, then you’re only half way there. REC makes a conscious effort to ensure its products are durable and recyclable. In order for a product to be recycled every piece of said product needs to be recyclable and with most solar panels this just isn’t the case. Each component of REC solar panels can be completely recycled and follows state of the art processes. The separate recovered materials can be easily and safely returned to the industrial and economic cycles.
REC has won multiple awards for their sustainability and performance with multiple policies in place to ensure they do their part for the good of the environment, including their fight against climate change. They also have a low carbon footprint, and a short energy payback time i.e the energy to produce and the energy saved is roughly the same amount.
