As one of the leading solar equipment distributors in the United States, we pride ourselves on offering our hardworking contractor community a select group of Tier 1 products from leading PV, inverter, racking, and storage manufacturers. In 2021 Q2, this exclusive lineup welcomed a new face: REC Solar.
Featuring some of the most advanced solar cell and module innovation on the market, the REC Alpha Series modules include 380-watt 60-cell and 450-watt 72-cell versions. Because of their high-power density, the premium panels produce 20% more energy compared to conventional modules, driving down solar electricity generation costs for homeowners and businesses.
And now, REC Alpha modules are available in our BayWa r.e. solar distribution U.S. webstore.
As REC’s newest Platinum partner, we hope you’re as excited as we are. To help get everyone up to speed on REC’s incredible R&D credentials and the technical edge offered by their PV modules, our own U.S. Product Manager Aaron Bingham invited the REC team for an informational webinar for installers. You already know Aaron from our Solar Tech Talk solar nerd podcast series — and here he welcomes Chris Masys, Senior Business Development Manager for REC Americas; Brian Ghiglia, Senior Director of Business Development at REC Americas; and Melissa Watson, National Marketing Manager for REC Americas.
