public failure rate

Panasonic HIT® high reliability and efficiency

Panasonic regularly announces the public failure rate of photovoltaic panels sold still in guarantee.

Very low public failure rate

Since its launch in 2003 in Europe, Panasonic supplies this information to its customers, providing statistics on the durability and reliability of their products.

The last reported public failure rate reported in January 2017 was 0.0035%. In June there is a slight fluctuation of the last figure, 0.0037% on 3.97 million HIT ® solar modules sold in Europe since 2003.

This fluctuation is normal and the very low value again represents the very strong reliability of Panasonic photovoltaic panels.

Panasonic: 40 years of experience …

Panasonic began its design and production of photovoltaic modules in 1975 with amorphous photovoltaic cells and then marketed them in 1980.

The modern HIT ® photovoltaic modules were born in 1990, and then marketed in bulk in 1997.

Over the years Panasonic has received many awards thanks to the indisputable reliability of its products, such as the prestigious IEEE award for the HIT module.

… and 25 of warranty on their HIT ® photovoltaic panels

Panasonic solar modules are tested three times more intensely than the IEC standard. This guarantees extreme strength of the modules even in adverse weather conditions.

Adaptability and flexibility of installation

The three types of modules in the HIT ® range are also characterized by special surfaces compared to the standard modules in the market.

This gives you the advantage of being able to adapt to roofs where other modules are bulky or not easy to install.

The N245 model, with only 80 cm wide, 15 kg weight and 245 Wp power, makes it one of the most efficient modules.

The N295 and N330 models have 4 shading zones, so in the case of shadows, the panel does not lose all efficiency but only one part.
