03.08.2021 - REC presents: N-Peak 2 with up to 375 Wp

REC has introduced the second generation of its N-Peak module series, expected to be available at EWS in October 2021. After the introduction of the Alpha Pure and the TwinPeak 4 series (see here), this is already the third new product from this manufacturer within a few weeks. The N-Peak 2 comes standard with 120 black monocrystalline, high-quality n-type half cells, a white backsheet and a black frame.

In terms of wattage, REC is taking a big step forward with this new module generation. At up to 375 Wp, they are around 45 watt-peak higher than the maximum rated power previously available.

This is partially due to the larger module dimensions, which also increase the weight to 20 kg. With 1.83 m² (instead of the previous 1.67 m²), the area available for electricity production per module increases.

In addition, the temperature coefficient and efficiency have been improved once more – power density and energy yield per square metre increase.

This makes the REC N-Peak 2 ideally suited for residential and smaller commercial and industrial rooftops, where as much power as possible is to be accommodated in a small space or where higher outputs have to be achieved with fewer modules.

The annual degradation is also significantly lower than the the previous model. With a maximum of 0.25 per cent (instead of 0.5 per cent), a power output of at least 92 per cent of the rated power is guaranteed even after 25 years.

In addition, the N-Peak 2 boasts many of the advantages that already distinguished the first generation of modules:

  • LID-free cell technology: the eponymous N-type cells prevent light-induced degradation of the cells.
  • TOPCon technology: increased electron capture and high, stabilised efficiency thanks to complete passivation of the cell’s back.
  • Particularly sturdy 30 mm frame for loads of up to 7,000 Pa via to two support bars at the back of the module
  • Industry-leading warranty commitments: REC provides a 25 years product and performance warranty on the N-Peak 2 series and up to 25 years on repair work. This ProTrust warranty applies to installations completed by certified REC Solar Professionals. By default, system owners receive a 20 years product warranty and a 25 years performance warranty.
