Some of the advantages that make unique SolarWorld SW 260 Poly:
- ASA reinforced corners. ASA is a type of plastic used in automotive technology and with great physical and UV resistance. Decisively facilitates drainage of water and dirt from the panels.
- New 33mm aluminum frame for lightweight panel. The SolarWorld framework does not consist of a single sheet of aluminum, but aluminum tube flattened, so their resistance is much higher than other manufacturers.
- Greater separation between cells and panel frame, to reduce losses caused by the accumulation of dirt, without affecting the panel dimensions.
SolarWorld tests UV are much more strict than IEC:
As you know, the plastics are impacted by UV radiation, so the quality is really important to the solar panel life:
IEC standard: 15 kWh/m2
UV exposure Central Europe: 50 kWh/m2/year
So, the standard complies with IEC about 4 months only. This is what other manufacturers apply to their modules, but SolarWorld is much more.
25years x 50 kWh/m2= 1.300 kWh/m2
So, SolarWorld test simulates a UV irradiation of 25 years. It means, 86 times that IEC standard requires.
Test for deserts:
Up to 3.000 kWh/m2
No other manufacturer have this UV resistance. Again, german solar panels, SolarWorld, proves why is the best quality photovoltaic panel.
SolarWorld Temperature cycling tests:
The IEC standard requires 200 cycles of temperature variations from -40 ° C to 85 ° C. SolarWorld pv modules are tested for 600 cycles. And for extreme climates, they are tested to withstand a cycle of change each day, for 25 years:
IEC standard: 200 day / night cycles
SolarWorld standard test: 600 day / night cycles
This means, SolarWorld bears 3 times the IEC standard. Other brands only apply IEC standard.
Real-life extreme conditions:
25 years x 365 days = 9.125 day / night cycles
SolarWorld temperature shock test is made in the following way:
1. Modules min. 30 minutes at-40 °C
2. Oven change within 10 seconds
3. Modules for 30 minutes at 85 °c.
No other manufacturer have this quality. Only SolarWorld.
SolarWorld test for impact resistance and hail:
IEC standard, for hail resistance, requires an impact from 4 meters, with a steel ball of 25mm and 7,53gr. This is what other manufacturers apply to their panels, but SolarWorld panels are tested with 25mm and 500g ball.
Besides SolarWorld solar panels are tested to withstand impact 45KG bag with pendulous height 1.22m.
SolarWorld panels test, wind and snow loads:
IEC standard says that a solar panel must bears a snow load pressure of 2.400N / m2 and 5,400 N / m2 wind pressure.
SolarWorld panels are tested with 11,000 N / m2.
SolarWorld underpressure and pressure tests are made in the following way:
Alternating pressure and suction exerted up 1.2 million times
– static and dynamic
– much higher number of cycles as an IEC standard
All SolarWorld are solar panels made in Germany and are loaded with m2 up to 11.000N / m2
No other manufacturer has a solar panel with this quality.
SolarWorld - PV+Test by TÜV winner - Best solar panel:
“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.”

How can we check the quality of SolarWorld solar panels?
Always the best way to check what is better and what is worst, is to see data about a real case. Let´s show a real case with a comparison between SolarWorld versus Chinese top brand panel, let´s say, Made in Germany solar panel versus Chinese solar panel.
So, below we show you the performance data about a solar PV plant, in Greece, at same location, one project beside the other:
Project 1 With SolarWorld panel:
Solar Panel: SolarWorld SW235poly
Mounting structure: Fixed at 30
Shading: Partly in winter time
Total capacity: 9,87kWp
Energy production: 10068kWh or 1020.06kWh/kWp
Project 2 with Chinese Top Brand panel:
Solar Panel: Chinese Top Brand 250W
Mounting structure: Fixed at 30
Total capacity: 10kWp
Energy production: 9680kWh or 968 kWh/kWp
These data was from one of our clients in Greece, so, as you can see, SolarWorld performance in much better than Chinese one, although SolarWorld PV plant has a partial shadow in winter and less total capacity, the performance is 5% better !!. Both PV plants are located at same place. We are not showing the Chinese brand, but it is one of TOP 4 (Suntech, Yingli, Renesola or Trina).

PV Panels comparison of panels in running real photovoltaic projects:
The SunReport monitoring portal has recently published a test on photovoltaic projects in operation.
The bases of the test were:
- Sample of more than 12,000 photovoltaic installations.
- Analysis of production samples since 2010.
- Official data of the Italian Electricity Network Agency (GSE)
- Official radiation data obtained from the Eumesat (European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites)
- The idea of this study has been to verify, in projects in operation, which solar panels are the ones that have the best performance in the market.
The exam was made on real photovoltaic projects running in Italy from 2010 to 2016, where the best PV brands have been:
Many other known manufacturers such as Luxor, Axitec, Amerisolar, Yingli Solar .... Did not appear in the publication, because their performance was much lower than the average.
As can be seen in the picture, SolarWord german solar panel, such as the mentioned SolarWorld SW 260 poly, are the best performing on the market, only surpassed by the old Sanyo brand (HIT technology).
