Panasonic Corp has developed a new solar panel product that can be integrated with a residential roof.
It is one of the products in the “HIT” series of heterojunction solar cells, which combine monocrystalline silicon and amorphous silicon.
The new product uses a mounting system integrated with a roof.
The solar panel can be set up on a roof without making holes in the roof, thus enabling more effective use of the rooftop. It maximizes the amount of power generation with a limited space, the company said.
Also, because its cross-section has a corrugated shape, the panel is resistant to the load of snow and can be used in regions where the height of snow cover reaches 2 meters.
