About product

REC 290W Solar Panel 120 cell TWINPEAK 2 REC290TP2

REC TwinPeak 2 Series solar panels feature an innovative design with high panel efficiency and power output, enabling customers to get the most

out of the space used for the installation. Combined with industry-leading product quality and the reliability of a strong and established European brand, REC TwinPeak 2 panels are ideal for residential and commercial rooftops worldwide.

Higher Efficiency 17.4%

By delivering more power per square meter, you need fewer REC TwinPeak panels to generate the same power. This means quicker installation times and the need for fewer components such as clamps and racks. All of which reduces your overall costs.

Quality and Reliability

More performance in shaded conditions.

Panels from the REC TwinPeak family have a unique “twin” design, which enables them to generate electricity even when they are partially shaded. Over time, you get a higher yield from your installation.

Multicrystalline Cell platform

Based on a multicrystalline cell platform, the REC TwinPeak Series encompasses a number of new and innovative technologies that provides performance comparable to monocrystalline p-type and n-type modules. Most visibly, these modules use “half-cut” cells with 60 cells on each side of the module wired in parallel. This keeps the voltage similar to 60-cell modules, while improving shade tolerance and reducing energy loss due to cell resistance. The cells themselves feature state-of-the-art Passivated Emitter Rear Cell (PERC), aka “backside passivation” technology that improves the light capture of the cell, resulting in improved energy harvest in real-world conditions. The modules are equipped with a novel “split” junction box that places the PV wire cables with MC4 connectors near each side of the module, to better dissipate heat. The PV wire output cables are long enough to enable landscape array layouts.

Product Warranty

10 year product warranty and 25 linear power output warranty

How many panels do I need to power a 230v pool heater?

Depends on the power rating and time in use. Check out our article on powering AC with panels - this might help you
Can I add these panels to my already existing roof solar that has REC 260 PEZ panels?

Yes, technically you can, as long as there is still room on your roof. However, most solar installers have a minimum number of solar panels that they will install, so you have to take it into consideration.
Can these be made available at your Illinois location for pick up? Thanks

We can ship to freight forwarder.
How long does installation of the panels take?
03/11/2021, 13:56
Depends on where you at. If we're talking about a residential system, then generally it takes 3-6 weeks. The permitting process is what needs the most time.


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
