Opportunity burns bright for solar technology
The future is digital, connected and automated. But where will all the energy come from to run the myriad systems required to inform and enhance our lives? Renewable energy makes a future humming with electricity-consuming devices look not only possible, but practical for our planet.
Before most people even knew what renewable energy was, Panasonic had carved out a position at the forefront of solar power. Today, more than ever, Panasonic is creating solutions that allow businesses to scale down their energy costs.
World’s most efficient solar
The world keeps asking more of solar, but finding even a 1% gain in performance is no easy task. Panasonic is wringing the full energy potential from every minute of sunlight.
Our HIT (Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin-layer) solar panels have set an industry record for conversion efficiency, providing businesses with greater power output and savings. And smarter panel installation and advanced solar tracking systems are delivering more value from dawn to dusk.
The advantages of Panasonic’s HIT panels
To create higher long-term value, Panasonic optimized every element of its innovative HIT panels. Ultra-thin amorphous dual silicon layers absorb and retain more sunlight, allowing for higher energy output. At the same time, an ingenious bifacial design captures light from both sides of the panel. And a unique interior structure reflects less light back out of the panel.
Sunshine all night long
Reliable energy storage multiplies the value of renewable power, helping utilities and municipalities meet peak demand on hot days – and after the sun goes down. Battery storage also eases the challenge of maintaining the grid’s capacity after storms or equipment failure.
Solving big challenges coast to coast
Panasonic is helping communities create clean energy today and for decades to come. A 34-megawatt plan in Tulare County, California, will serve 9,000 homes. A 120-megawatt project in Florida will potentially reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 3.5 million tons over 25 years. And Denver has teamed with Panasonic in a holistic technology initiative that is creating a model for all cities concerned about sustainability.
