Sanyo Introduces Double-Sided Solar Panels

Sanyo recently introduced the HIT Double bifacial solar panel, which generates power from both sides simultaneously and is reportedly designed to achieve the highest power per square foot of any solar panel in the world.Designed for maximum energy performance, the HIT Double produces up to 30 percent more electricity than the single-sided Sanyo HIT power panels, depending on the system’s design, location and surface reflectance.The solar panel is comprised of two glass layers, allowing sunlight to pass through the panel, which, along with the light reflected off surrounding surfaces, is captured by the back of the panel.The HIT Double may be used on skylights, awnings, canopies, trellises, carports and walkways.www.sanyo.com/solar
