Metro Manila, 2021 - The “Made in Germany” label carries a strong reputation built over decades and proven by outperforming machineries and products that cater to different needs all over the world. The secrets of its success lie in pursuing highest quality standards in engineering, production and processes with zero-mistake quotas, and in the motivation to constantly innovate and pioneer.


German manufacturers established themselves as innovators and market leaders in solar technology until today, even though the major volume of production shifted to Asia to cater to mass market demands, but often with volatile quality.


Solar components made in Germany manifested themselves as top of the line worldwide ensuring reliability, durability and performance with up to 22% more harvest in comparison to e.g. a standard China-made solar panel.

What a lot of consumers don’t know is that the Tier system is not based on the quality of the solar panels at all. The Tier system is a scale coordinated by Bloomberg New Energy Finance Corporation and is used to rank solar panel manufacturers in terms of their bankability or financial stability. The scale was put together to create a transparent differentiation between the hundreds of manufacturers of solar modules in the market. Most mass market players, especially in China, are Tier 1 because of the volume they produce, with quality not being considered in the matrix.


Thus, home and business owners should focus on the materials being used to create the products, the quality standards and processes of the manufacturers and the warranty security provided to be able to make the best choice. All high quality products worldwide are not mass market products, they usually are manufactured in smaller quantities to ensure highest quality!
