Founded in Norway in 1996, REC employs 2,000 people and has an annual solar panel capacity of 1.8 GW. With over 10 GW installed worldwide, REC is empowering more than 16 million people with clean solar energy. REC Group is a Bluestar Elkem company with headquarters in Norway, operational headquarters in Singapore, and regional bases in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.
The operations headquarters and manufacturing facilities are located in Singapore while the new parent company is the China National Bluestar Group. REC is a fully vertically integrated company which means they produce everything from the silicon ingots, cell wafers and complete module assembly, thus the company has complete control over the quality and traceability of all components.
REC was the first company worldwide to release panels utilising the innovative split module design with half-cut cells, rather than the standard full size square cells. Due to the many advantages and improved efficiency of the half-cell design this clever innovation is now becoming an industry standard with many other manufacturers developing panels with half-cut cells.
