What is a Tier 1 solar panel?

  • It’s quite apparent that the term “Tier 1” gets used quite liberally and frequently by many solar sales companies who use it to describe their solar panels as being of a high quality. They are in fact incorrect to do this. 


  • The Tier 1 ranking scale is orchestrated by Bloomberg New Energy Finance Corporation and is used to rank solar panel manufacturers in terms of their bank-ability or financial stability.


  • One may quite rightly make an assumption that a Tier 1 ranking has more to do with financial stability rather than product quality… and the answer is yes. Bloomberg defines a Tier 1 solar manufacturer as “those which have provided products to five different projects which have been financed non-recourse by five different (non-development) banks in the past two years”


  • Tier 1 solar panel is a high quality panel or should we say a solar panel that is designed to produce power for as long as the expected lifespan which is around 25 years. 


  • The other reason why one can make the assumption that a Tier 1 solar panel is a quality panel is based on the criteria set by Bloomberg in that only solar panel manufacturers that own their own manufacturing facility can be included for review. 


  • If a solar company outsources the manufacturing of its panels then it will not be included on the Tier 1 list. 


  • If a company owns its own manufacturing facility then you know that there will be strict quality control guidelines in place which ultimately will result in better and more reliable product! 


  • Companies having invested in their own manufacturing are also investing into research and development of their product. Simply put – they want their solar module to be better than a competitor’s solar module. Having a competitive advantage (say for example a higher efficiency panel) over similar manufacturers can lead to better sales.


  • It is important to note that only a very small percentage of the world’s solar panel manufacturers achieve Tier 1 ranking so be very wary if a solar sales representative makes a claim that their solar panel is a tier 1 panel. Ask for documented proof.
