Which is better? Tier-1 Rated vs German-made Solar Energy System Components - PHILERGY German Solar

PHILERGY German Solar for homes and businesses - Switzerland's Best Selling Panel Megasol - High quality installer for solar power systems and top rated panel packages for residential, commercial and industrial roofs in the Philippines

Metro Manila, 2021 - The Made in Germany label carries a strong reputation built over decades and continuously 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.

But what is the Tier System?

Most of us are familiar of several solar energy system components being touted as "Tier 1". A lot of consumers aren't made aware 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!

Another key reason why PHILERGY sources materials from Germany is the warranty assurance provided. This is ensured by German law through a specific department regulating consumer protection. Such a law is important to protect consumers and to avoid companies that claim to offer 25 years warranty but once the product line is phased out or the company loses its financial stability, warranty claims are not granted anymore.

Once we install your solar system, your name gets registered and warranty claims will be granted as stated in our binding agreements. Unfortunately, this is not ensured by law in many countries, also in Asia, making warranty promises vague and not 100% secure.
