How it works

Photovoltaics, or PV for short, is a solar power technology that uses solar cells to convert energy from the sun into electricity.

  1. 1. Photons in sunlight hit the solar panel and are absorbed by silicon (a semi-conducting material)
  2. 2. Negatively charged electrons are knocked loose from their atoms, allowing them to flow through the material to produce electricity.
  3. 3. The direct current (DC) electricity enters an inverter.
  4. 4. The inverter turns DC electricity into 240-volt AC (alternating current) electricity needed for air conditioning.
  5. 5. The AC power enters the utility panel and is distributed to the air conditioning system.
  6. 6. When the air conditioning is not being used the electricity can be diverted to power other facilities or flow into the national grid.

What's so special about SANYO's HIT solar cells?

Solar panel

SANYO's superior HIT (Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin layer) technology features a thin amorphous layer on top of high-quality monocrystalline silicon wafers. This makes SANYO HIT solar cell is the most advanced and energy efficient PV solar cell in the world. They are therefore the preferred choice for tracking systems and roof installations all over the world.

Cell efficiency of up to 20% - This is the world's highest level of conversion efficiency in mass production.

More clean energy – HIT can produce more annual power output per unit area than other conventional crystalline silicon solar cells.

Higher performance in low light – HIT unique structure provides excellent sensitivity to lower light levels or indirect light. Ideally suited to temperate climates.

High performance at high temperatures – Even at high temperatures HIT can maintain higher efficiency than conventional crystalline silicon solar cells.

Environmentally friendly – Modules are 100% emission free, have no moving parts and produce no noise.

Space efficient – Very high conversion efficiency allows space saving installation and achieve maximum output power possible on a given roof area.
