The world's first Alpha installation near Venice is a milestone for the whole solar industry. The REC Alpha Series offers the world's highest power in a 60-cell format of up to 380 watt-peak representing 217 watts per m², producing over 20% more energy than conventional panels. Through its innovative cell technology and patented panel design, the Alpha is helping homeowners drastically reduce their power bills, save money and thus increase their energy autonomy. It provides excellent performance in all climate conditions making it the perfect choice also for regions with high temperatures. REC Alpha Series' industry-leading warranty guarantees 92% nameplate power output even after 25 years of electricity generation, giving owners peace of mind that the panels will maintain their high performance for decades. Its environmental endurance certifications were completed in August ensuring exceptional performance and durability.

Following their launch at the Intersolar Europe exhibition in May of 2019, the very first REC Alpha modules were delivered in June 2019 to distributors with installations beginning in July. REC Group's CEO, Steve O'Neil, said: "We are very proud and excited to get our Alpha solar modules on roofs all over the globe. The world's first installation in Italy marks an important milestone as Alpha means more power in less space for everyone. The future of solar energy has arrived, delivering significant energy savings for homeowners and businesses through innovative technology and elegant design. We look forward to empowering households, businesses, schools and communities all around the world ? and further helping to save beautiful but endangered places like Venice."
