SANYO Offers More PV Power Per Square Foot with New Hit Power 22A Solar Modules

| 7/23/2010 5:26:19 PM

SANYO North America Corporation (SANYO) announces the availability of its most advanced HIT Power® solar module, the HIT Power 220A, offering improved efficiency and energy output -- and designed to energize integrators and installers with more power per square foot than ever before.

The HIT Power 220A features certified cell efficiency of 19.8%, and module efficiency of 17.4%, among the best the industry has to offer. Its predecessor, the HIT Power 215, offers an impressive cell efficiency of 19.3% and module efficiency of 17.1% This is the fifth innovation to join the HIT Power® family, which also includes the HIT Power 205, 210, 215 and 220 modules. 

”SANYO’s engineering teams have risen to the challenge of refining the power generating capabilities of solar photovoltaic technologies for nearly four decades,” noted Charles Hanasaki, president of SANYO’s U.S. Energy System Solutions Division. “The efficiency and energy production innovations we’re introducing in the HIT Power 220A are the result of concerted efforts to drive innovations that produce more energy using less space -- in a variety of environmental conditions,” Hanasaki said. 

SANYO HIT Power® solar modules are made of 72 hybrid HIT cells that combine two best-of-breed solar technologies -- high efficiency monocrystalline silicon with ultra-thin layers of amorphous silicon. The monocrystalline silicon is sandwiched between the amorphous-Si to offer superior conversion efficiency, excellent temperature characteristics and considerable output under diffuse and low light conditions.  All of this helps bring SANYO customers a sense of energy independence by offering them more for their solar dollar.

“The industry has advanced to the point where home and property owners understand that the solar energy solutions they purchase will not only reap them enticing tax credits and environmental incentives, it will be working for 25 to 30 years to virtually eliminate their monthly electric bills,” added Hanasaki. “We’ve invested a great deal into bringing quality, industry-leading solutions to market so customers can enjoy these energy advantages with confidence.”

With more power per square foot, incorporating SANYO modules into clean energy solutions for homes, businesses or public agencies also means fewer rooftop modules are required, something that conserves rooftop space and installation time. It can also increase the number of building owners who can deploy rooftop solar solutions despite limited space or awkward architectural impediments.
