PVinsight’s SANAS ISO 17025 accredited laboratory services can test your PV products for quality and performance verification according to IEC standards as well as our in-house procedures.
We are an independent lab and can verify claimed module performance, providing clients with confidence in the continued performance, reliability and functionality.
Photovoltaic modules are expected to last up to 30 years – sometimes in harsh environments.
It is therefore important to understand defects and other performance degrading mechanisms to ensure the efficiency and longevity of your installed solar panels whether it’s small scale or large scale.
One key factor of reducing the costs of photovoltaic systems is to increase the reliability and the service life time of the PV modules.
Today’s statistics show degradation rates of the rated power for crystalline silicon PV modules of 0.8%/year.
