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.

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.
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.
