Premier Energies Limited, India’s second largest integrated solar cell and module manufacturer, has been recognised as a ‘Top performer’ in PV Evolution Labs’ 2023 PV module reliability score card.
Premier Energies, backed by global environment fund GEF Capital (based in Washington DC), has offices in India and Toronto and has a fully automated line in Hyderabad (India) with an annual capacity of 2 GW of cells and 3 GW of modules.
Premier Energies’ 88 modules spanning 400 W, 450 W, 500 W, and 540W series qualified as Top Performer after passing PVEL’s rigorous Product Qualification Program (PQP). Under PQP, the modules were tested on a variety of parameters like thermal cycling, damp heat, mechanical stress sequence, potential-induced degradation (PID), light-induced degradation (LID), light and elevated temperature-induced degradation (LETID), and PAN performance.
“Premier Energies modules have, in fact, delivered high reliability scores of less than 1% degradation in critical tests like LID+LETID and less than 2% degradation in PID. These reliability scores, in simulated real world rigorous conditions are highly relevant to solar developers who are looking for modules that perform reliably under varying and testing conditions,” stated Premier Energies.
