Supplier Snapshot: REC SOLAR

REC Solar was founded in 1997 in Norway and form part of the Renewable Energy Corporation. It is a fully integrated solar photovoltaic (PV) manufacturer involved in every step of the manufacturing process as well as using fully automated production machinery, thereby reducing human error and achieving consistently high-quality products, which is one part of achieving Tier 1 status.

REC Solar invests significantly in Research & Development (R&D) to produce the most quality solar panels possible and lower their carbon footprint. Through new silicon processing technology, REC solar panels will produce the same amount of power it took to manufacture them within one year

REC Solar has extensive experience with residential, commercial and utility-scale projects all around the world.
The company has won several awards for their sustainability and performance, including the Intersolar Award for photovoltaics in 2015 and in the ‘Global solar energy solutions’ category for ‘Best company for sustainability’ by the IAIR (International Alternative Investment Review) Group in both 2014 and 2015.
REC Solar is a member of PV Cycle, which ensures that its products are recycled at the end of their lifetime.


Main features of REC Solar Panels:

  • Proven to perform well in harsh climates and low light conditions.
  • Outstanding module efficiency of up to 16.20 % which means that the panels on your roof collect more power per square meter and you require less roof space.
  • Positive power tolerance of up to -0/+5%. This means that each 260 watt panel will be at least 260 watt; many cheaper panels have a negative tolerance so that you can end up getting less than what you paid for.
  • Certified PID (Potential Induced Degradation) -free panels. This guarantees that the panel will withstand the effects of corrosion and other elemental impacts throughout its lifetime.
  • Low temperature coefficient (-0.40%). This means that the panel performs very well in higher temperatures and is suitable for our hot Queensland climate.
