The HIT solar cell is made of a thin monocrystalline silicon wafer surrounded by ultra-thin amorphous silicon layers. This product offers the industry's leading performance and value, using state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques. The development of the HIT solar cell was supported in part by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). High efficiency: With Module efficiency of 19% and a cell conversion efficiency of 21.6%, the HIT-N240 ranks high on the level of efficiency in the market.
With its very low temperature coefficient of only -0.29%/C, the HIT solar cell offers better performance than conventional cells in normal operating conditions. Water-drainage frame: drainage lines in the Module frame allow for constant discharging of accumulated water. As water is not allowed to dry on the module there are no drying stains, and any build-up of humidity inside the panel is effectively prevented. A welcome side-effect is that the water-drainage frames help to keep modules clean even in low-angle installations. With the new HIT modules, Panasonic re-established its position among leading solar Module manufacturers. The first modules will be shipped from the companys newly established global manufacturing hub in Malaysia. The HIT-N245 and HIT-N240 boast the highest quality and reliability: Panasonic employs strict materials selection and qualified manufacturing processes. A vertically integrated factory allows for exhaustive quality assessments at every step of production.
Water drainage frame
Rain water is drained off the module surface. This avoids not only water accumulation, but also water stains after drying. Even in low-angle installations, water drainage corners keep the module clean.
Power from both sides
HIT cells generate solar electricity simultaneously on the front and on the back side. This additional amount of light is combined with the light taken up by the front side of the module.
Vertically integrated factory
Efficient production flow improves product quality as entire process from wafer to cell is done at the same location. No risk of damage of individual components during transportation between factories

The development of the HIT solar cell was supported in part by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).
Panasonic is truly committed to quality since it began developing and manufacturing solar PV technology in 1975. Our long track record is supported by our claim-rate of only 0.0036% in our European factory in Dorog, Hungary (as of September 2013).
HIT solar modules are 100% emission free, have no moving parts and produce no noise. The dimensions of the HIT modules enable a space saving installation and the achievement of maximum output power possible on a given roof area.
High performance at high temperatures
With its very low temperature coefficient of only -0.29%/ C, the HIT solar cell can maintain a higher efficiency than a conventional crystalline silicon solar cell, even at high temperatures.
