Invest in SolarWorld

A proven history and a bright future

Since our founding in 1975, homeowners, businesses, schools, government enterprises, utility companies and other forward-thinking leaders around the globe have trusted us to provide the most reliable, highest-producing solar solutions available.

When you invest in solar, you want a company that not only has a proven history of success but one that will stand by its products for decades to come. Unlike others corporations where solar is just one small part of their portfolio, solar is all we do—which is why we do it so well.

Superior products, maximum return on investment

Over the past four decades of manufacturing industry-leading solar panels, we have noticed a trend: while our customers return to us, our products do not.

Why? Our solar technologies are different because we are different. Over the past 40-plus years, SolarWorld has stood apart as the largest solar manufacturer in the U.S. During this time, we have achieved many industry firsts — from being the first to produce one megawatt in a single year (1980) to introducing the industry’s first 25-year warranty (1997). 

We have locations in or near the markets we serve which gives us a high level of flexibility and proximity to customers in our core markets. Across languages and cultures, from residential homes to large-scale public utility installations, our brand is synonymous with quality, performance and innovation.

Products designed for performance

All solar is not created equal. SolarWorld maximizes every solar investment with proven, quality, reliability and durability. At the heart of our efforts lies a simple fact: the more sunlight solar panels capture, the more sunlight they convert into clean, efficient energy. SolarWorld has one of the highest quality standards in the solar industry. Our commitment to quality and maximum lifetime energy output delivers a high return on investment for our customers and has also made us the recognized leader in solar.

In addition to our success with residential and commercial solar solutions, we have a successful track record in turnkey EPC services and large-scale photovoltaic systems. The SolarWorld Projects and Solutions team intelligently and insightfully manages all design, supply and installation deliverables. We take pride in our long-lasting relationships with electrical equipment suppliers; electrical, mechanical and civil contractors; instrumentation and controls specialists; structural steel suppliers; and carport erectors, to name just a few. All of our partners must clearly demonstrate capabilities that align with our exacting standards.

Whatever the size of a solar installation, no matter how harsh the terrain or weather conditions, we have the manufacturing strength, product availability and human resources to support the most demanding schedules and system requirements.

Operational excellence

Quality stems from well-designed products. To ensure consistent, reliable solar excellence, every SolarWorld solar panel is held to the most stringent levels of quality control. Our manufacturing is completely vertically integrated, from crystal growing and wafer cutting to cell processing and panel assembly, which allows us to closely control every step of the solar value chain.

SolarWorld is independently certified by a multitude of agencies and organizations to ensure we meet and surpass stringent national and international standards. These authoritative performance ratings, certifications and standards consistently confirm what we already know: from sourcing the highest quality materials and adopting sophisticated manufacturing processes to engineering custom-designed installations, we demonstrate our commitment to excellence time and again.

Here are just a few of our certifications:

  • ISO 9001 Quality Certificate
  • ISO 14001 Environmental Certificate
  • Occupational Health and Safety Certificate
  • ISO 50001 Energy Management Certificate

We proudly back our performance with an industry-leading 25-year linear guarantee as well as a 20-year product workmanship warranty.
