N325K Photovoltaic Module HIT® BLACK, 40mm

Panasonic premium N325K, 40mm solar module delivers greater power conversion, superior long term performance and enhanced aesthetics for every home. Over 40 years of solar research and development goes into every Panasonic HIT® high efficiency home solar panel.

Featuring high output 21.8% module efficiency, slim all-black appearance, and 325 watts per panel, N325k provides an advanced renewable energy source with zero emissions.

19.4% Module efficiency and sleek all black appearance

Greater power output with fewer panels. Our space-saving N325K solar panels set the standard for long-term conversion efficiency. Using 96 cells in the same size footprint as 60-cell panels, N325K delivers more power output per square foot, making it ideal for small and large roofs alike.

Enhanced frame design

A new 40mm frame increases durability and strength, being able to handle loads of up to 5400Pa. Also, the water drainage system gives rain water and snow melt a place to go, reducing water stains and soiling. Less dirt on the module means more sunlight getting through to generate power.


Innovative pyramid structure absorbs more sunlight

HIT® modules employ a uniquely effective pyramid structure that optimizes sunlight capture. By reducing outward reflection and directing sun rays inside the cell, HIT absorbs more sunlight than conventional panels. Solar power is then produced at a higher rate, which generates more electricity for your home.

Heterojunction technology minimizes electron loss

HIT® solar modules are designed with thin amorphous silicon layers, reducing electron carrier loss to minimal levels. The result is a remarkably high-efficiency solar cell that produces greater energy output over the long term.

Higher performance at high temperatures

As midday temperatures rise, conventional solar panels weaken and lose their energy-producing power. They fizzle in the heat when you need them most. Featuring an industry leading temperature coefficient of -0.258% /⁰C, our patented cell design delivers peak efficiency throughout the day and through the seasons, even in the hottest climates.

Smart water drainage for peak power

Water stains can inhibit optimal sunlight penetration and panel efficiency. A special water drainage system prevents rain water accumulation and eliminates water stains from the panel surface.

Strict quality testing standards ensure long-life performance

At Panasonic, meeting minimum testing standards is not good enough. Conducted under Panasonic quality assurance practices, we perform 20 additional tests on our panels beyond those mandated by industry standards organizations. Stringent performance and durability testing under the most extreme weather conditions lets us guarantee you decades of safe, efficient, worry-free operation.

25 Year Product and Performance Warranty

A warranty is only as reliable as the company standing behind it. Backed by one of America’s most trusted brands and a century of financial stability, our warranty covers your entire system, including product and output performance, for 25 years.  Complete your warranty registration here www.panasonicusahitwarranty.com
