Sanyo HIP 186DA3 Solar Panel

48.00 LBS
$25.00 (Fixed shipping cost)

Product Description

Power per Square Foot 14.2 Watts

SANYO’S Proprietary Technology

SANYO HIT (Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin layer)  solar cells are hybrids of mono crystalline silicon surrounded by ultra-thin amorphous silicon layers, and are available solely from SANYO.  

Sanyo HIT Power Solar Cells

Power from Both Sides
The back side of a SANYO HIT Double solar panel generates electricity from ambient light that has passed through the panel or is reflected off surrounding surfaces, while the front side operates simultaneously, which results in higher power generation compared to standard single-sided HIT panels at any angle and direction.

Temperature Attributes
As temperatures rise, SANYO HIT Double solar panels produce more electricity than conventional crystalline silicon solar panels at the same temperature, because of their low temperature coefficient.

High Efficiency
SANYO HIT Double solar maximize power within a fixed amount of space. Depending on your installation design and location's albedo, HIT Double solar panels can capture additional back side ambient light, increasing system performance. These powerful panels are ideal for grid-connected solar systems, areas with performance based incentives, and renewable energy credits.

Unique Structure
SANYO HIT Double solar panels have a double glass structure that enhances aesthetics and allows brilliant light and shadow to shine through the panels. The panels have a silver anodized aluminum, double walled frame for extra strength. The panels come pre-equipped with a touch-safe junction box, lead wires, MCTM plug-n-play connectors, and unique rails - all of which help to minimize support BOS materials, labor, installation time and costs.

Valuable Features
SANYO HIT Double solar panels have no moving parts and weigh less than 51 pounds. The panels come with a 20-Year Limited Power Output Warranty and a 2-Year Limited Product Workmanship Warranty. Panels are UL 1703 safety rated for wind, fire and hail - Class A. Unique eco-package minimizes cardboard waste deposited in customer’s trash.

Quality, & Ratings
SANYO silicon wafers are manufactured in the USA, and the panels are assembled in Mexico at an ISO 9001 and 14001 certified factory. All panels undergo inspection to ensure strict compliance with electrical, mechanical, environmental, and visual criteria. SANYO’s conservative model ratings grant more kWh per rated kW, and assist with accurate predictions of performance and economics.

IMPORTANT HIT Double bifacial solar panel's Rated Power (Pmax)1 is measured at Standard Test Conditions (STC). STC does not include power produced from the backside bifacial effect of the panels. Bifacial panels may produce up to 130% of their STC rating, dependant upon installation design and location albedo - the site's reflectance rate. Use caution when selection, calculation and sizing system components to account for the increase in power.

To Maximize Power
1. Elevate panels above a surface as much as possible, to allow reflected and ambient light beneath the panels
2. Place panels over light-colored surfaces
3. Do not allow support rails to shade the panel's back face.

Application Possibilities
Architectural, Awnings, Balconies, Bus Shelters, BIPV
Deck & Porch Coverings, Canopies, Carports, Facades
Fences, Siding, Trellises, Tracking Systems, Vertical...
