Panasonic employs strict materials selection and qualified manufacturing processes. A vertically integrated factory allows for exhaustive quality assessments at every step of production.
Panasonic photovoltaic modules HIT features an innovative hetero-junction cell structure made of mono-crystalline and amorphous silicon layers. Ultra-thin amorphous silicon layers prevent recombinations of electrons, keeping carrier loss to an absolute minimum. As a result, HIT conversion efficiency ratings are among the highest available today.
Quality and Reliability
Panasonic’s vertical integration, 21 years of experience manufacturing HIT® and 20 internal tests beyond those mandated by current standards provides extreme quality assurance.
Enhanced Frame Design
A new 40mm frame increases durability and strength, being able to handle loads of up to 5400Pa. Also, the water drainage system gives rainwater and snowmelt a place to go, reducing water stains and soiling. Less dirt on the module means more
sunlight getting through to generate power.
Higher Efficiency 20.3%
Panasonic technology enables higher power output and greater energy yields. HIT® provides maximum production for your limited roof space.
HIT “N-type” cells result in extremely Low Light Induced Degradation (LID) and zero Potential Induced Degradation (PID) which supports reliability and longevity. This technology reduces annual degradation to 0.26% compared to 0.70% in conventional panels, guaranteeing more power for the long haul

High Efficiency at High Temperatures
As temperature increases, HIT® continues to perform at high levels due to the industry-leading temperature coefficient of -0.258% /⁰C. No other module even comes close to our temperature characteristics. That means more energy throughout the day.
