Soorya Bala Sangramaya (Battle for Solar Energy) – The Ministry of Power and Renewable Energy in collaboration with the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority, Ceylon Electricity Board and Lanka Electricity Company launched the Soorya Bala Sangramaya in 2016, with the intention of promoting and setting up small-scale solar power plants on rooftops of households, religious places, hotels, commercial establishments and industries, it is expected to add 200 MW of solar electricity to the national grid by 2020 and 1500 MW by 2025.
The programme accommodates three options for consumers to generate and use electricity in their households: Net Metering, Net Accounting and Net Plus.
REC’s internal testing is up to three times as stringent as industry standards – meaning that the panels which are sent for certification or testing, get passed. But beyond attaining a certification, REC wants the panels to be reliable for the lifetime of the product and perform strongly in even the most extreme environments.
REC TWINPEAK 2S MONO 72 SERIES
Premium Solar Panels with superior performance
REC TwinPeak 2S Mono 72 Series solar panels feature an innovative design with the higher panel efficiency of monocrystalline cells, enabling customers to get the most out of the space used for the installation. Combined with industry – leading product quality and the reliability of a strong and established European brand, REC TwinPeak 2S Mono 72 Series are ideal for all types of residential, commercial rooftop and utility installations islandwide.
MORE POWER OUTPUT PER M2
REC TwinPeak 2 Mono panels are packed with the same advanced REC TwinPeak technologies that have won REC multiple awards. This p-type mono variant offers higher power output per square meter of panels installed. Compared to standard 60-cell panels on a multicrystalline (poly) platform, you get at least 25 Wp more per panel!
MORE PERFORMANCE IN SHADED CONDITIONS
Panels with REC TwinPeak technologies have a unique “twin” design, which enables them to generate electricity even when they are partially shaded. Over time, you get a higher yield from your installation.
MORE COST EFFICIENT
By delivering more power per square meter, you need fewer REC TwinPeak 2 Mono panels to generate the same power. This means quicker installation times and the need for fewer components such as clamps and racks. All of which reduces your overall costs, shortening the payback time.

Country of manufacture – Austria
The SnapINverter generation of inverters features a simple, standardised mounting system, making installation and maintenance easier than ever. A special feature in the design of the device is that the connection area is separate from the power stage set compartment, with both being installed separately. The remarkably light connection area and all its cabling is fitted to the wall first, followed by the power stage set. The innovative hinged system makes installation and servicing extremely user-friendly. The inverter is simply placed in the mounting bracket and then secured. This means that it is not necessary to remove the entire inverter for servicing, just the power stage set. All the cabling remains in place
Country of origin – Germany
SMA Inverters are originated in Germany suitable for all module types including grid-connections, small house systems and commercial systems in the Megawatt range. SMA Inverters are even suitable for utility-scale PV power plants up to the multi megawatt range.
