What Happens When Low Quality, Unproven Materials are Used in Solar Panels?

Article by: EQ Magazine

The quality of PV modules and the materials used in them can be best assessed by evaluating their performance in the field. Challenging climatic conditions, like those in India, cause severe environmental stresses for PV materials in the field over their lifetime. Materials with poor durability can degrade quickly, so materials must be chosen carefully.

Understanding the field performance of different modules and materials is crucial to differentiate between good and poor quality materials to ensure reliable, durable, safe operations for PV sys­tems. In this article, read more about the findings of Field studies conducted by DuPont on over 4 million solar panels inspected in 275 installations across the world.
