Sanyo has a great
reputation for producing products that help
minimize their impact on the environment, including producing non
fluorocarbon refrigerators and non CFC air conditioners.
They also are
one of the few companies to produce
lead free solar panels, which can
go a long way to further reducing any negative impacts on the
Sanyo guarantees that
their products will produce the
amount of energy that they are rated for at the time of purchase, which
is almost unheard of in the solar world. Most companies guarantee their
output at plus or minus 5%, which means that a 300 watt panel from
other companies is only guaranteed to produce 285 watts, while a Sanyo
300 watt solar panel is guaranteed to produce at least 300 watts. All
Sanyo solar panels have a 20 year limited power output warranty and
fiver year workmanship warranty.
Sanyo HIT Technology
Sanyo solar panels utilize
Sanyo’s patented HIT
technology. HIT stands
for Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin Layer. This may sound quite
confusing and be hard for the normal person to understand, but luckily
it’s not necessary to understand what HIT means.
All that you need to
know is that this technology makes Sanyo solar cells one of the most
efficient brands of solar panels. The HIT technology uses thin mono
crystalline silicon that reduces energy generation losses and makes the
panels more effective than traditional crystalline solar panels, even
at high temperatures.
Sanyo Solar Leasing
One of the most
interesting and useful services that Sanyo solar offers
is a solar leasing
program. This program allows homeowners to lease a
solar system, many times with zero money down initially. This allows
greater access to solar units for those who might not be able to afford
the large initial investment that is normally associated with solar
To sign up for Sanyo’s
solar leasing program, the first step is
to contact a Sanyo licensed installation professional.
installer will then give you an electronic credit application that can
be filled out in less than 15 minutes. Sanyo will then review your
application and you’ll receive notification of approval the same day
that you fill out the application.
There are also many other
to the Sanyo solar leasing program. Sanyo provides solar monitoring so
you can make sure that your solar system is functioning at its optimum
output level. Sanyo also provides full theft and damage insurance, as
well as covering any repair costs. They even have a full replacement
program in place in case something should happen to your solar
inverter. Overall, this one of the most useful programs around and is a
great way to start using solar power without having to pay the large
of Sanyo Solar Panels
The Sanyo HIT Power series
of solar panels consists of 11 different
solar panels, available in a range from 186 watts to 205 watts. These
panels are suited for residential or commercial uses, although they are
usually only available for grid tied solar systems, which is a solar
unit that is connected directly to the local power grid.
The Sanyo HIT Power N
Series line of solar panels consists of six
different panels, available in three different wattages- 205 watts, 210
watts, and 215 watts. The Sanyo HIT Power N Series solar panels are one
hundred percent lead free, which is quite rare and makes these cells
even more environmentally friendly.
The Sanyo HIT Power A
Series line of solar panels are available in four
different models- HIT Power 210A, HIT Power 215A, HIT Power 220A, and
HIT Power 225A. The number next to each model name corresponds to the
wattage of each particular solar panel. This line has the same benefits
of the rest of the HIT Power series, although the HIT Power A Series
panels do contain lead, unlike the HIT Power N Series.
The Sanyo HIT Double
Series is a very interesting and unique line of
solar panels. These panels are bi-facial, meaning that they have solar
energy generating cells on
the front and the back of the panels. This
allows the backside of the solar panels to contribute to the energy
that these panels can generate by taking advantage of ambient and
reflected light that strikes the back side of the panels to stimulate
the silicon cells and thus produce energy.
This bi-facial technology
allows the Sanyo HIT Double Series of solar panels to produce up to
thirty percent more electricity than traditional single
These panels are obviously
going to cost more than traditional
solar panels, but the bi-facial technology allows these panels to
generate more energy in a much smaller space.
Sanyo produces three
different models in the HIT Double Series line of panels: a 186 watt
module, a 190 watt module, and a 195 watt module. These panels also
utilize a double pane glass technology that allows some light to go
through the panels which can create very unique lighting and shadows,
so they are also very useful for architectural applications and can be
very aesthetically pleasing.
Overall, the Sanyo HIT
Double Series are
probably one of the best solar panels available for purchase today.
These panels are guaranteed to generate more electricity in a smaller
space than any other panel on the market.
