Kyocera Launches Its “Highest-Output” Solar Panel
February 2nd, 2012 by Zachary Shahan
Kyocera announced this week that it was launching its “highest-output” solar panel (aka solar module) in the U.S., the 80-cell KD 315 (yes, the beauty above).
Kyocera notes that “the new module is ideal for large-scale installations like solar-covered parking.”
When reporting on the matter last year, Kyocera was the #3 seller of solar panels in California. It’s a solar powerhouse with a long history of innovation and success in the industry. It has a history of setting solar efficiency records.
Here’s more on the details of its new solar modules: “Designed for high output, safety and ease of installation, the UL certified KD 315 modules feature a UV stabilized, aesthetically pleasing black anodized frame; easily accessible ground points; proven junction box technology with 12 AWG PV wire to work with transformerless inverters and quality locking plug-in connectors for quick connections.”
As mentioned earlier today by Andrew, the company has also just teamed up with Nichicon to offer a “cleantech residential energy management system that brings together renewable energy electricity production, energy storage and management.” The system will use Kyocera solar panels—perhaps these?
