Indian solar module manufacturer Adani Solar has been rated as the ‘Top Performer’ for the fourth year in a row in the PV Evolution Labs’ (PVEL’s) PV Module Product Qualification Program (PQP).

PVEL released its seventh annual PV Module Reliability Scorecard this year.

With this recognition, Adani Solar has emerged as the only Indian solar manufacturing company to win the award for four consecutive years since 2018.

PV Module PQP has been recognised as the most comprehensive program for stringent testing of PV Modules on Reliability & Quality parameters, with data and results publicly available.

In present times, the urgency of a solar revolution in the energy sector gains greater importance. Higher efficiency PV modules drive growth in installations with new materials projecting higher returns and lower LCOE (Levelised cost of energy). This recognition would infuse confidence about new high efficiency PV modules such as PERC and PERT in customers thereby popularizing adoption of solar energy.

Adani Solar is the first and largest GW scale, vertically integrated cell and module manufacturer in India with a capacity to produce up to 1.5 GW of multi, mono-PERC and PERT Bifacial PV modules at its factory in Mundra SEZ, Gujarat.

Significantly, Adani Solar is the only Indian BNEF Tier-1 Manufacturer that has been rated as a Top Performer at PVEL’s PQP Program.

Commenting on the achievement, Ramesh Nair, Chief Executive Officer of Adani Solar said, “PVEL’s PV Module Reliability Scorecard is an invaluable tool that banks, IPP, developers and engineers use to ensure that projects are built with reliable and durable products. Four wins in a row for Adani Solar is a testament to our manufacturing excellence and reflects on our commitment to produce Solar PV Cells & Modules while ensuring highest quality, bankability & reliability. We at Adani Solar will continue to provide the most reliable and high efficiency products, which pass through stringent test procedures from material selection to finished good stage along with continual in-house reliability tests that has enabled us to create benchmarks for ourselves.”

“Developers and investors should always be aware that not all manufacturers have got their modules tested extensively for performance and reliability. Procuring unevaluated modules could have major ramifications for their projects. Adani Solar is a committed manufacturer, with state-of-the-art facility and best in industry practices, ensuring superior performance and reliability of its products,” he added.

On achieving the Top Performer recognition, Tristan Erion-Lorico, Head of PV Module Business, PVEL LLC, commented, “Congratulations to the Adani Solar team for achieving Top Performer recognition in the PV Module Reliability Scorecard for the fourth consecutive year. As the first Indian solar manufacturer to appear in the Scorecard four times in a row, we are pleased to name Adani Solar in our report once again. We hope to see the company’s continued growth in the near future and look forward to further collaboration.”

Besides Adani Solar, PVEL listed 25 other companies in the 2021 Top Performer list of PV Module Reliability Scorecard which includes – Jinko, Trina Solar, JA Solar, Q CELLS, REC Group, Astronergy, GCL, LONGi, Maxeon/SunPower, Phono Solar, Seraphim, Silfab, Vikram Solar, Boviet, First Solar, HT-SAAE, Hyundai, LG Electronics, Talesun, DMEGC, ET Solar, HHDC, Jolywood, Risen Energy, and VSUN among others.
