The photovoltaic industry has experienced exponential growth during the past several years. As renewable energy plays a larger role in our daily lives, photovoltaic modules will most likely play the most important role regarding distributed renewable energy.
Investments in photovoltaic modules are significant and are expected to last 20-25 years or longer. While many PV developers spend significant amounts of time and resources in the development, engineering, and construction of PV plants, surprisingly few pay much attention to the actual quality of the PV modules they purchase. Consequently, many developers have experienced problems or will soon experience problems due to technical issues. Furthermore, once PV modules are installed, the cost to change, replace, or repair modules increases significantly.
Wouldn't it be much more efficient and cost effective to carry out exhaustive quality controls at the point of production BEFORE the PV modules are delivered? CEP Solar helps you to reduce the risk and get the best quality that the Chinese market has to offer.
