What is a Bloomberg Tier 1 Solar Panel?
Contradictory to popular belief, Bloomberg’s infamous tier 1 ranking is NOT a measure of Solar Panel quality in any way. It is simply an indication of the financial health and the bankability of the manufacturer based on publicly released information about the company. However, the tier one status of a solar panel is a favourable feature in a solar panel as it indicates whether the solar company is a large, well-known manufacturer of solar panels.
What does it mean to be PV Evolution Labs Top Performer?
It is important that all solar panels are tested under various conditions independently and under controlled situations to provide a better idea about the practical efficiency and performance of the solar panels. PV Evolution Labs with support from DNV GL independently test the reliability of solar panels. These tests are voluntary, with solar panel manufacturers paying to participate in the testing. Most solar brands choose to undergo this testing process as it is internationally renowned and is an accurate reflection of the solar panel’s performance.
Seraphim Solar Panels are currently ranked in the PV Evolution Labs Top Performers across 4 of the 6 annual tests in the latest report.
The importance of physical presence of the solar panel brand
Most solar panel manufacturers entering the Australian market first set up their distribution channels and do not prioritise after installation service. This holds true for a large number of solar panel distributors leading to many unhappy customers who are left trying to contact Chinese head offices to claim on their product warranty. Seraphim has outsourced the warranty claim service to SAE Group, who are a Solar Installer based in Tweed Heads New South Wales.
It is very important to choose high quality solar brands of reputed companies when choosing a solar system for your home as any lapse in one product can adversely affect the working and returns from the solar system.
