Sanyo Aims To Be A Hit In Clean Energy Solutions

By Marie Jones | Thursday | 19/08/2010

The rooftop solar panel grid system installed at Johnson & Johnson Medical's North Ryde HQ uses Sanyo's unique patented HIT technology, providing one of the world's highest conversion efficiencies, according to Sanyo's Group Manager, Environmental Division, Paul Reeves.

Hit Technology (Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin-layer) cells are a hybrid of two common solar cells in the marketplace, Crystalline and Amorphous, that are combined to create a more efficient and effective solar cell, said Reeves.

Sanyo HIT cells are made of thin mono crystal silicon surrounded by ultra-thin amorphous silicon layer which are claimed to provide better performance and value.

"Using HIT solar cells enables organisations to obtain maximum power generation per square meter. With more power per square metre, incorporating Sanyo modules into clean energy solutions for homes, businesses or public facilities also means fewer rooftop modules are required, something that saves rooftop space and installation time, which in turn saves money," said Reeves.

"The technology is getting to the point where companies like Johnson & Johnson Medical understand that the solar energy solutions they purchase will not only provide them with a reduction in their footprint, it will also be working for the next 25 to 30 years to dramatically reduce their monthly electricity bills," added Reeves.

Sanyo teamed up with approved system integrators Apollo Energy and project management team from its retail division, Energy Matters, to install this cost-effective and highly efficient solar panel system for Johnson & Johnson, which is said to be the largest commercially funded solar panel installation in Australia.

Reeves continued: "The development of this large scale solar panel installation is truly a milestone for Sanyo, Johnson & Johnson Medical and the solar panel industry in Australia.  It is the largest panel installation in the country and will save Johnson & Johnson Medical around 10 per cent of its electricity costs.  The development of this installation is also a reflection of Sanyo's place as a leading manufacturer in solar, and more importantly, a clean energy leader in the Australian market."
