Sanyo has introduced a solar panel similar to Prism Solar Technologies’s hybrid solar module dubbed as HIT Double PV modules. Similar to HPC, this Sanyo solar module also capable of generation 30% more of power out of the Sun’s wasted energy. The HIT Double PV modules also provides 89% solar ration reflectivity and weather resistance thanks to the DuROCK Tio-Coat roof coating.
The modules were actually a result after Sanyo Canada teamed up with DuROCK, where Sanyo offers their HIT Double bi-facial solar PV to be combined with DuROCK Tio-Coat reflective roof membrane. According to the source, the combination between this two technology can generates more energy from a reduced number of solar panels. In the future, this technology will free user from installing a roof-full of solar panels to power-up the entire home.
