Proprietary Technology

SANYO HIT (Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin layer) solar cells are hybrids of single crystalline silicon surrounded by ultra-thin amorphous silicon layers.

text bullet

High Efficiency

SANYO HIT solar panels are a leader in cell and module efficiency. With models up to 16.2 Watts per sq. foot (17.4% module efficiency) you obtain maximum power within a fixed amount of space. You save costs for using fewer support materials, wiring, and spend less time installing. The powerful modules are ideal for grid-connected solar systems, areas with performance based incentives, and renewable energy credits.

text bullet

Temperature Attributes

As temperatures rise, SANYO HIT solar panels produce more electricity (kWh) than conventional crystalline silicon solar panels at the same temperature.

text bullet

Unique Structure

SANYO HIT solar panels have a black anodized double-wall aluminum
frame. The panels come pre-equipped with a touch-safe junction box, lead wires, MCTM plug-n-play connectors, and a unique mounting lip, all of which help to minimize support structure materials, installation time and costs.

Valuable Features

SANYO HIT solar panels have no moving parts and weigh less than 31 pounds (14kg). The panels are 100% emission and noise free. 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. You can transport the panels to a site using less space and our eco-package minimizes cardboard waste deposited in a customer’s trash.

Quality, Ratings, Reliability

SANYO silicon wafers are manufactured in the USA, and the panels are assembled in Mexico. All SANYO solar factories in North America are ISO 9001 and 14001 certified. The panels undergo strict inspections to ensure electrical, mechanical, environmental, and visual compliance. SANYO’s conservative model ratings give customers more kWh per rated kW, and assist to more accurately predict performance and financial economics.
