The model. The VBHN315KA01 is a PREMIUM 96 cell monocrystalline 315 watt solar module made by legendary Panasonic. And this all black solar panel looks fantastic (black frame on black back sheet = black on black (BOB)).
Temperature. Like the rest of the HIT line, Panasonic incorporates its technology to maintain high energy production when temperatures are high (unlike standard PV modules that perform lower in heat).
Heterojunction Technology. By incorporating dual ultra-thin amorphous laters of silicon, Panasonic HIT solar panels have less energy loss and higher efficiency than standard PV modules. The VBHN315KA01 boasts 18.8% module efficiency!
Low Degradation. Panasonic incorporates technology that reduces the typical degradation (vs conventional PV modules) in power production over the life of the panel. More like 0.26% annual degradation vs 0.70% of other panels. That means more power for you over the life of the panel!
25 Year Warranty. While most of the solar panels that we carry also boast long warranties, in this case the warranty is backed by 100 year-old Panasonic. Just sayin'. And to be clear that is 25 years for product workmanship and 25 years for power output (guaranteed to still generate 90.76% of its nameplate power rating after 25 years).
