Sanyo was the leading force behind amorphous silicon solar cell development; which it commenced way back in 1975. Still the world leader today, the company has produced more than 100 million HIT solar cells over the years; steadily bringing down the price of the technology to a point that it's now within the grasp of home owners looking to install the highest performing solar power system possible.
The SANYO HIT (Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin layer) solar panel is made up of solar cells composed of a monocrystalline silicon wafer surrounded by extremely thin amorphous silicon layers.
Even at high temperatures such as we experience here in Australia, the HIT solar cell can maintain higher efficiency than a conventional crystalline silicon solar cell.
Sanyo HIT technology also offers a smaller footprint, allowing you to make better use of your rooftop real estate as a platform for clean electricity generation.
