About product

Among the newest offerings of REC, REC400NP3 is part of the N-Peak 3 Black series. The REC N-Peak 3 Black is the third generation of REC's n-type TOPCon cell-based solar panels. With its improved power density, the REC N-Peak 3 Black will give consumers higher savings on electricity bills and carbon emissions.

Half-cut cell technology adds a few more percent to the overall performance, making this model a great example of efficiency. REC made solar cells in REC400NP3 two times smaller than the standard size, thus reducing power loss and improving low-light behavior. As a result, the panel achieves an impressive efficiency of 20.3%. The innovations made the appearance of the panel as impressive as the specs. A mere 1.2" thick, this model is completely black with a smooth surface. This beauty doesn’t compromise the quality or reliability of the panel. REC provides a 25-year product warranty. Stable power output is also guaranteed — performance warranty will protect you during 25 years.

  • 400 W power output
  • 132 half-cut N-TYPE cells
  • 20.3% efficiency
  • 1000 V DC maximum system voltage
  • Staubli MC4 connectors
  • 25-year product and 25-year performance warranties

High efficiency of 20.3%

REC N-Peak 3 Black panels have a high efficiency of 20.3 percent and take full advantage of the company's technologies, which have won REC several honors. With up to 400 Wp in a 66-cell format panel, the REC N-Peak 3 Series uses the most efficient cell technology in the industry, capturing more sunlight thereby providing more power. The panel features the innovative REC ‘Twin’ cell layout design, where the panel is split into two twin sections, also enabling continued energy production, even when partially shaded.

Heat-resistant performance

The heat is less of a problem with this module: with one of the industry's lowest temperature coefficients, REC400NP3 loses just -0.34% of efficiency for every 1.8°F over 77°F.

Quality and reliability

REC400NP3 is subject to rigorous quality and reliability testing as well as many quality checks throughout the production process. The level of automation in the manufacturing facilities virtually eliminates human error. To guarantee that you receive the finest, REC is committed to quality, safety and dependability.

Reliability and degradation resistance

REC guarantees slow deterioration over the next 25 years. The performance will decline by no more than 2% during the first year and then by no more than 0.25% every year after that. After the 25 years are over, your modules will retain at least 92% of their original performance. This 400 W REC solar panel also comes with a substantial 25-year product warranty.

Certified for the most extreme environmental conditions

PID, salt, acid and ammonia cannot harm REC400NP3. Furthermore, it has a mechanical load resistance of up to 7000 Pa in the front and 4000 Pa in the back. A layer of protective glass and 1.2" thick anodized aluminum frame are the primary reasons for its toughness.

Outstanding all-black design

The panel has a sleek, all-black style that complements any roof beautifully. REC uses unique treatment and selection procedures to guarantee optimum cell color. The cells are connected by thinner wires, and from a distance, the surface of the modules seems seamless and smooth.

FAQ

How much is shipping and how long is delivery?
Our standard shipping charge is $250 for up to 11 panels and it is increased by $25 for every 4 additional panels. In the event, the product is only available on East or West coast custom quote will be sent to you before the order is processed. Normally, we are able to deliver solar panels within 7 business days.
What is the difference between low price panels and top price panels?
With top tier solar panels, you pay for the brand name, proprietary new technology, higher energy output, and better warranty support.
What are the dimensions of the panel?
Please refer to the product datasheet on the product page. We have a datasheet for every product we sell.
How long is the warranty on the panel?
In general, manufacturers provide a 25 year-long performance warranty and a 10 year-long equipment guarantee. Some manufacturers offer 12-15 years of warranty. More information is available in our warranty support section.
Which panels do you recommend for RV, marine?
We recommend Panasonic and Mission Solar panels for smaller systems as their high energy output and excellent craftsmanship guarantee years of service.
Can this panel be used with a 12v system?
Any of our panels can be used for a 12v system with a properly selected inverter and charge controller.
Can I pick up this panel from your fulfillment center to save on shipping?
Yes, we can set up a pick up at a local distributor. Please call to discuss options and stock availability.
How do I connect these panels?
To achieve the best system efficiency, panels should be connected in series to create higher voltage.
How many panels do I need?
This number is determined by your average energy needs. Depending on the type of panels and energy consumption, you might need anywhere from 12 to 45 solar panels. Remember, the more panels you install the more energy you will get.Please use our solar calculator to estimate your energy consumption and plan on building a solar system that will exceed your energy needs by 25%.
Do you offer discounts?
We do offer discounts for orders of over 50 units. Please contact us for details.
How do I build a solar system?
Please use our solar calculator to estimate what equipment you need. Choose your panels, microinverters, inverters, and solar batteries if necessary.Please note that we do not offer solar system design or installation.
How do solar panels compare?
Solar panels differ by power output, voltage, connection type, size, efficiency, and weight. Some solar panels might be sold together with microinverters as a set.
Can I build a solar system by myself as a Do It Yourself project?
Yes, it is possible if you understand what solar equipment you need and how to connect it together. However, please be mindful that handling your own electrical work without having proper experience might cause life-threatening injuries. Please contact a certified electrician if you do not possess appropriate electrical skills.
Can I connect and charge my solar panel battery directly with the solar panel?
We do not recommend using the solar panel without the charge controller. Using solar panels without the charge controller might damage the batteries.
Can I drill holes into the aluminum frame for mounting?
We do not recommend drilling any new holes to the aluminum frame of the panel as it could damage the internal circuit and solar cells. (Also, any modification to the panel will void the warranty). We recommend only using the pre-drilled holes for mounting.
Do solar panels require maintenance? Can I wash my solar panel?
Solar panels generally require very little maintenance. We recommend cleaning the solar panel with water, glass cleaner (Windex) and microfiber cloth.
Will my panel produce power in an overcast condition?
While solar panels require sunlight to generate solar energy, they will still work in cloudy weather. Even on a cloudy day, solar panels will produce energy just not as much.
Will my panels produce power if covered with snow?
Solar panels cannot produce electricity if covered with snow.
What is the best direction for a solar panel to face?
The best direction for a solar panel to face is the South
