SolarKraft – Your local REC approved and certified solar installer
Choosing the set up that is right for you depends on a number of factors. Available space, the amount of sunlight and, of course, the way it looks will all play a role. Happily, no matter your circumstances, our high quality, high power-output products mean we have a solar panel that’s right for you. Take a look at our REC families of solar panels for homes to find the set up that’ll work for you.
People choose to make the switch to solar for all kinds of reasons, but one of the most compelling reasons many people choose to do so is for the environmental benefits. If you’re making the switch for that reason, you’re not alone in doing so, and one of the best choices you can make from an environmental perspective is REC.
REC makes the most sustainable panels on the market. Within 12 months of installation, your REC solar panels will have produced the same amount of energy it required to manufacture them, and that’s a result to be pleased about.
REC solar panels are highly reliable
REC engineers are pedantic when it comes to testing, going above and beyond the industry standards for testing panels. As a result, the products REC actually puts out on the market have a failure rate of less than 0.0001 percent.
REC has strict requirements for installers
REC is one of those companies that really care about holding on to its market advantage, particularly in terms of their excellent record for safety and reliability. REC only allows installers who participate in the REC Solar Professional Program to install their panels, which is why it is now becoming increasingly more difficult to find REC panels in Australia. SolarKraft is proud to be a REC approved and certified solar installer. As a consumer, you should care about who installs your panels, and you should care about the quality and reliability of the panels you receive.
When you buy REC solar panels from SolarKraft, you will know you are getting highly reliable, environmentally sustainable solar panels expertly installed to the highest standards of safety and reliability. When your panels are installed by SolarKraft, the product warranty is 12 years (for rooftop installations up to 500kW), backed up by the 25 year linear power output warranty for added peace of mind.
An award winning solar manufacturer
REC won the 2015 Instersolar Award in the Photovoltaic category for the REC TwinPeak solar panel design. This innovative solar panel has a number of features that helped it gain this honour, and which make it one of the best solar products on the market in its class.
The features of this REC solar panel include:
- Better power output per square metre. The panel packs 120 REC HC multicrystalline cells in six strings of 20 cells, for a high density energy collection footprint.
- Anit-PID technology. PID is “potential induced degradation”, a serious problem that can result in up to 30 percent of energy production potential being wasted due to ionic transfer from the glass to the frame. REC uses anti-PID technology to eliminate energy loss through PID. In fact, REC promises their products are 100 percent free from PID.
- Better performance in low light conditions. Solar panels obviously require light in order to do their job, but some need more light than others. The efficient design of REC TwinPeak panels ensures their performance remains consistently good, even when there are clouds or shadows between the light source and the panel surface.
- Lower overall system cost. REC panels may not be the cheapest on the market, but they’re certainly available for a low up-front cost, which looks even better when you consider their high efficiency and high reliability. If you buy cheaper panels, it can end up costing you more through energy losses and requirement for panel replacements.
With all these excellent features, REC solar panels are a very good choice for the budget-conscious consumer who appreciates high quality and consistent performance. SolarKraft’s expert installation of REC solar energy systems means quality you can rely on. We also supply & install Redback & Phono solar systems as well.
