The company said the four new modules feature higher efficiency and enhanced performance– even in high temperatures – as well as exceptional degradation rates. The new modules are also backed by Panasonic’s TripleGuard and AllGuard 25-year warranties. The new modules, which will be available in 2021, include:

EverVolt Solar Module Series 380W / 370W modules, available in Q3 2021, features efficiency rating of 21.7% and 21.2%, respectively, and provides maximum power output for residential solar systems. EverVolt Solar Module Black Series 370W /360W modules, available in Q3 2021, features efficiency rating of 21.2% and 20.6%, respectively.

In addition, the new EverVolt Solar Modules series deliver a number of key benefits including:

  • High efficiency in high temperatures, with one of the industry’s lowest temperature coefficients at 0.26%/°C
  • Improved performance when shaded
  • Higher module efficiency with one of the industry’s lowest annual degradation rates, delivers 92% of the original output after 25 years
  • Heterojunction cell technology with half-cut cells.
