SolarWorld - 25 Year Performance Guarantee

SolarWorld Advantages

SolarWorld solar panels are available with silver or black components. These modules meet their stringent SolarWorld quality standards and meet and exceed all industry standards and certifications. They also carry our 25-year linear warranty to guarantee maximum performance through the lifetime of your system.

SolarWorld - Made in USAQuality Manufacturing

SolarWorld carries out each step of the module manufacturing process in Hillsboro, Oregon and international factories. They adhere to the strict quality management, environmental and occupational health and safety standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and OHSAS 18001. By using statistical process controls in every step in the manufacturing process, SolarWorld is able to maintain the highest level of quality. We employ a sophisticated, fully automated manufacturing process supported by the most technologically advanced equipment available – from crystallization to modeling.

SolarWorld - ReliableReliable

SolarWorld carries out many more tests than required by international standards. In fact, every component they use must meet at least 3 times IEC requirements. These tests help us improve the quality of their products by providing valuable information on the behavior of their solar modules. By using this data they can extend the life of our products, improve their properties and reduce error rates. IEC tests are regularly performed on random solar modules taken from their production sites to ensure the high reliability of our products even after they are introduced.

SolarWorld - PID-FreePID-Free

Potential induced degradation (PID) is a phenomenon where the power output of a solar module is reduced when exposed to high negative voltage bias between the cells and ground. PID can potentially affect the performance of individual modules as well as the overall power output and efficiency of an entire solar power generating system. SolarWorld Sunmodules have been certified as PID free by 3rd party laboratories.

SolarWorld - TÜV Rheinland CertifiedTÜV Rheinland Certified

The TÜV Rheinland “Power Controlled” inspection mark guarantees that an independent test provider certifies that the power ratings specified for their solar panels are maintained and regularly monitored. The performance of our solar panels exhibits a mere 2 percent measuring tolerance. No other manufacturer can claim such precise performance.

SolarWorld - DurableDurable

With a maximum load capacity of up to 8500 Pa (178 psf), SolarWorld panels are designed to withstand heavy accumulations of snow and ice.

Solarworld - EfficientEfficient

Plus‑Sorting guarantees highest system efficiency. SolarWorld only delivers modules that have greater than or equal to the nameplate rated power. The positive power tolerance guarantees utmost system efficiency. Only modules achieving or exceeding the designated nominal power in performance tests are dispatched. The power tolerance ranges between -0 Wp and +5 Wp.

SolarWorld - Textured GlassTextured Glass

Optimized surface structure: The proprietary surface coatings and granular texture of the Sunmodule’s front glass create two effects: the reduction of the light reflected from the outside (air-glass interface) and the internal trapping of the light reflected from the solar cells in the module (light-trapping). These two effects combine to make an extremely efficient and high performance PV module.

SolarWorld - Salt Mist ResistantSalt Mist Resistant

SolarWorld Sunmodules have passed the most severe IEC 61701 salt spray test conditions proving their resistance to salty air which makes them ideally suited for installation in coastal areas.

SolarWorld - 1000 Vdc1000 Vdc

The certification to international standards provides additional assurance that SolarWorld panels are suitable for use in systems with greater than 600 Vdc string voltage.

SolarWorld - 3rd Party Pan Files3rd Party Tested

In addition to reliability testing, we partner with third party test laboratories during the preparation of our PAN file and participate in their Outdoor Performance Index studies. By examining these tools and data, our customers can better mitigate their risk and increase their confidence that SolarWorld will deliver maximum returns on their solar investment for years to come.

SolarWorld - Ammonia ResistantAmmonia Resistant

SolarWorld Sunmodules are ideally suited for long-term use in agriculture, as confirmed by the German Agricultural Society and TÜV Rheinland. For example, laboratory tests have determined that our panels can successfully withstand the effects of ammonia inherent in agricultural conditions during a 20-year period.
