Use our simple and above all super-fast search to find the right solar product for your project. The search results are displayed as "Instant-Search", which saves time and makes the search very comfortable.
The search field is usually the easiest way to find the products you are looking for. You can search for all product groups by manufacturer and/or product name.
Use the filter options to further narrow down your search results. The filter options vary depending on the product group. The selected filters can be quickly removed using the "Reset" button.
Use the field "quantity" as a filter. In the marketplace overview, you will already see the price specific to your quantity (plus VAT). This may save you from having to open and laboriously compare the individual offers and the associated quantity scales.
The right product
We as marketplace operate independently from suppliers and do not have commercial reasons in recommending one product over another. So we would like to call us somehow "independent". We are working in the solar industry for almost a decade now and often customers asks for the "right" product.
So what is the right product?
To my point there is no single product which suits best. There is always different criteria to be considered. To simplify it I like to break it down to LCOE (levelized cost of electricity) over time and the risk profile of the investor.
LCOE is the go to factor determine the return of investment. Often investor do make the mistake and only compare the overall installation cost of a system but what they really need to look at is what the average cost of energy production over a lifespan of the system is.
You might have a proposal for panel of Typ A at 100.000 EUR and a proposal of Typ B at 110.000 EUR. Assuming product B has better technical specifications (e.g. favorable temperature coefficient, less prone to LID and a higher performance ratio) you might being better off spending 10% more for your panels. The LCOE is so significant as it a measurement to which takes the lifetime of solar system into the calculation. As we all know a solar panel will not yield the same performance in 10 years from now as it is today. So what happens if the performance of product A drops by 10% after 10 years while the performance of product B only drops by 5%? I think you got the picture. However, we can not say that a higher price always results in better performance and or lower LCOE. Though there are some correlations, especially if you look at the Tier-2 manufacturers and at some of there so-called "bargains".
The other point I want to shortly cover is the risk profile. A higher risk should always yield a higher return. That's what you need to understand as investor. If you are a risk taker you might want to go with a very new technology or a manufacturer who offers his products under the "normal" market price. If you are more on the risk avoidance side than you would rather stick to technologies which have proofed to be working excellent and manufacturers which are amongst the market leaders in terms of price and quality. Price - quality ratio is hard to measure. Though I would personally trust more a company who spends millions in R&D than a company who does not hold a single patent and has no expertise in this field what so ever!
Please understand that we will not proclaim that manufacturer A is better than B or that technology Z is inferior to technology Y. If you are interested in our opinion about this feel free to call us up for a chat.
