Mr. Begley is a well-known actor who first came to the attention of audiences and critics while playing the role of Dr. Victor Ehrlich on the long-running hit television series, “St. Elsewhere,” for which he received six Emmy nominations. He has appeared in numerous movie, television, and theater productions.
He is also a committed environmentalist who has promoted individual action as a means of protecting the environment, often teaching others by his own example. Panasonic hopes that his recognizable and trusted voice will help convince consumers to help the environment by installing solar panels.
Panasonic boasts that its HIT solar modules have one of the world's highest conversion efficiencies and excellent temperature characteristics, allowing HIT modules to generate more power throughout the year, even during peak summer months, compared to other types of crystalline modules. HIT stands for "heterojunction with intrinsic thin-layer." The solar cells used in Panasonic's product are a hybrid with a unique structure comprised of a thin mono-crystalline silicon wafer surrounded by ultra-thin amorphous silicon layers.
