#1 – 2011 PV+Test by TÜV – Very Good Quality:
“This test is the best possible because TUV make the test directly from solar panels bought anonymously in normal retail outlets and then put them through many months of tests at TÜV Rheinland’s solar laboratory in Cologne. Until now, all the quality tests was made with panels sent direclty by the manufacturers, so it is easy to understand that manufacturers always sent the best pieces that never are the same that we can find in the end client market. This test is real, with real panels, at the real market, so, testing the real quality of the panels that you finally buy.”
SHARP solar got a final 91 points from 100 possible, and is in the 5th position as higher quality solar modules in pv market.
If you are thinking about a new pv project, we suggest you to take always in mind that the high quality of the products installed is one of the most important things you must take in account. You must remember that all the solar panels of any pv system will be outside, under rain, snow, storms, sunlight…. more than 25 years, so a low quality product will send to trash all the performance and the investment of your system, and for sure pv-systems are not a cheap investment.
