REC develops new PV-module with lead-free soldering
Sandvika, Norway – The module producer Renewable Energy Corporation (REC) has launched the REC Peak Energy Eco – a new solar module produced with lead-free soldering.
According to REC an innovative step in manufacturing has enabled the company to remove all the lead normally required in the soldering process, which has significantly cut the lead content in the module. The result is an even more environmentally-friendly product with the same high output performance and reliability as other REC modules, REC points out.
“We are seeing that an increasing number of our customers and regulators require information about the environmental footprint of solar solutions,” confirms Luc Graré, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Cells and Modules, REC. “The development of the REC Peak Energy Eco module demonstrates REC’s commitment to developing high-performing technologies that are safe and sustainable throughout the lifecycle.
