Sanyo has more than 30 years experience manufacturing solar cells and began the first commercial production of amorphous silicon solar cells in 1980. In 1992 Sanyo was the first manufacture in Japan to install an on-grid photovoltaic power generating system for residential use. Sanyo has achieved the world?s highest conversion efficiency solar panels with their HIT Double bifacial solar panels offering substantial power output increases per watt than conventional PV panels. Sanyo continues to be a major player in solar research and development and in 2001 built one of the world?s largest photovoltaic power generators called the ?Solar Ark?.
Sanyo Hit Double PV
Sanyo truly raised the bar in technological excellence when they introduced the HIT (Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin Layer) Double bifacial PV module. Sanyo HIT Double PV panels absorb ambient light from the back face of each solar cell in addition to the front face of the cell. Depending upon the configuration of the system and solar panel positioning this design can achieve up to 30% more power output. HIT Double technology utilizes a thin crystalline silicon layer sandwiched between two thin wafers of amorphous silicon.
Sanyo Hit Double PV Performance
Due to the utilization of two types of semiconductors, Sanyo HIT Double PV panels are able to benefit from the properties of both semiconductors and are a proprietary technology exclusive to Sanyo. Sanyo HIT PV modules are reported to be the highest performing PV modules available with characteristics unlike conventionally designed PV modules. Conventional solar panels using only mono or poly-crystalline silicon have a tendency to lose output power in high temperature conditions. Sanyo HIT Double PV panels can achieve much higher power outputs in high temperatures and are also sensitive to the full range of the solar spectrum. This means better operation during dim light.
Sanyo HIT Double Suppliers
Sanyo HIT Double PV prices will vary between UK suppliers and it would be best to compare the prices of the most reputable suppliers by using a well established comparison website. Solar energy comparison websites can help consumers compare the reputations and prices of Sanyo PV suppliers without bias. Solar panel comparison websites can not only help consumers to compare the best Sanyo HIT Double PV panel prices, but can also filter supplier addresses by how close to the consumer?s physical address they are. MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) accredited Sanyo suppliers are the best installers to use so that Sanyo solar panel systems can earn their owners cash for all electricity that they generate under UK government Feed in Tariffs for renewable energy. Only MCS accredited suppliers are able to supply solar panel systems eligible for inclusion in Feed in Tariffs.
