Vikram Solar ranks as PVEL top performer for fifth time


India’s Vikram Solar has ranked as a “top performer” in the PV Evolution Labs (PVEL) PV Module Reliability Scorecard 2022, claiming the title for the fourth consecutive year and for the fifth time in the last six years.

The manufacturer had 120, 144, and 156 half-cut-cell bifacial modules listed in the scorecard, including multi-busbar modules with 500 W of output. These variants were rated as top performers in PVEL test sequences across the damp heat, potential-induced degradation (PID), and light-induced degradation and light and elevated temperature-induced degradation (LID+LETID) categories. They showed less than 2% degradation following these particular tests. 

“Vikram Solar was the first Indian solar manufacturer to be listed in PVEL PV Module Reliability Scorecard in 2017 … We have been concordant in claiming top positions in half-cut cell with multi-busbar fitting in all solar products since 2021,” said Gyanesh Chaudhary, Vikram Solar’s vice chairman and managing director.

Vikram Solar is headquartered in Kolkata, West Bengal. It is one of India’s largest PV module manufacturers, with a cumulative production capacity of 2.5 GW as of Dec. 31, 2021. It has been rated as a Tier 1 PV module manufacturer by BloombergNEF.
