We believe solar power can inspire your dreams.
REC is short for Renewable Energy Corporation. The company was founded in Norway but now carries out all production in Singapore.
They produce tier 1 panels with 20 year product warranty (or 25 years if they’re installed by a REC certified installer) and a 25 year performance warranty.
REC has an Australian office in Melbourne. Having a physical local presence is pretty important for building confidence in the brand and properly supporting its customers in Australia.

What is a Bloomberg Tier 1 Solar Panel ?
Bloomberg’s infamous tier 1 ranking is NOT a measure of Solar Panel quality in any way. It is simply an indication of the bankability of the manufacturer based on publicly released information on the financial health of the company. This should give you an idea if the company is a large, well-known manufacturer.
What is PV Evolution Labs Top Performer?
PV Evolution Labs with support from DNV GL independently test solar panel reliability. The tests are voluntary, with solar panel manufacturers paying to participate in the testing. This testing process is internationally renowned and is an accurate reflection of the solar panel’s performance.
Why is office location in Australia Important?
Most solar panel manufacturers entering the Australian market first set up their distribution channels and worry about customer service later. This has led to many unhappy customers who are left trying to contact Chinese head offices to claim on their 10-year product warranty.

The latest release from REC is the new Alpha Pure R series which is built on a completely new 80 cell format resulting in a wider and shorter panel and boosting efficiency to an impressive 22.3%. Power output also increases from 410W to a maximum of 430W.
