REC Group Shines Bright at Solar Power International

Celebrates official U.S. launch of REC Alpha Series and its first customers; wins booth design award

REC Group, a pioneering global solar module manufacturer, celebrated the US launch of its new high performance Alpha solar panels at Solar Power International (SPI) last week in Salt Lake City, Utah. Utilizing heterojunction technology, the REC Alpha Series is the world's most powerful 60-cell monocrystalline solar panel, delivering up to 380 watt-peak (Wp) and reaching an industry-leading 21.7% efficiency rating. This translates to a power density of 217 W/m², providing 20% more power than the same number of conventional panels in the same area.

REC Group celebrated its first US orders of the game changing panels with a signing ceremony at the event. Participating Alpha customers included Inter-Island Solar Supply, Sonepar, the Honnold Foundation, Amicus Solar, Solar Electric Supply, Western Nevada, Harvest Power and ProVision. The REC Alpha Series is available in North America through direct purchase and through REC's distributors.

"SPI serves as an important barometer and it is clear that REC is setting the pace of innovation," said REC Group Americas president, Cary Hayes. "Working with our customers to empower communities is core to our mission. It is great to hear from our customers here that we are succeeding together. We work hard to be the trusted provider of choice and look forward to furthering our strong, personal relationships in the future."

REC hosted the launch event at its innovative booth featuring a soaring LED wall and integrated LED floor, which was awarded 2019 Booth Design Winner by Solar Power International.

"We enjoyed celebrating the launch of the REC Alpha Series with our customers, and we're looking forward to carrying this momentum into 2020," said Hayes.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
