Panasonic HIT+ 340W Panel VBHN340SA17 BOW
Pete the photon was a dreamer. While everyone around him burned red hot, mindlessly flinging themselves around the interior of the sun for eons, Pete longed for something more. One day he gathered his courage and ventured up to the sun’s surface where things were cooler and the views could not be beat. Soon, Pete joined a group of like-minded photons and they leaped in rays off the sun, into the great unknown.
After hurtling through space at the speed of light for a few glorious minutes, Pete landed with a splash on the tempered glass of a monocrystalline solar cell. As his energy was harnessed and efficiently turned into power, Pete whooped with joy! Finally, he was more than just light and heat - he was electricity!
In the 8 minutes it takes for the sun’s rays to travel through space to the earth, they reduce in temperature from 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit to a balmy 61, and diffuse perfectly for a sunny stroll around town. They’re also primed to be captured by solar cells and turned into electricity to power your fridge or charge your toothbrush. They travel from the surface to the sun, to your dental hygiene, in less than 9 minutes. Now that’s speedy delivery!
Panasonic’s vertical integration, 20 years of experience manufacturing HIT® and 20 internal tests beyond those mandated by current standards provides extreme quality assurance.
As temperature increases, HIT® continues to perform at high levels due to the industry leading temperature coefficient of -0.258% /⁰C. No other module even comes close to our temperature characteristics. That means more energy throughout the day
Industry leading 25 year product workmanship and performance warranty is backed by a century old company- Panasonic. Power output is guaranteed to 90.76% after 25 years, far greater than other companies.
A new 40mm frame increases durability and strength, being able to handle loads of up to 5400Pa. Also, the water drainage system gives rain water and snow melt a place to go, reducing water stains and soiling. Less dirt on the module means more sunlight getting through to generate power.
