Tier 1 Manufacturers, Grade "A" Photovoltaics and Balance of Systems (B.O.S.) Equipment

PV Edge prefers to source Tier 1 manufactured, employing Grade A cells. Generally, PV Edge will NOT quote Tier 2 or 3, Grade B, C and D-cells. Tier 1 Manufacturers are the TOP 2% of all Manufacturers. PV Edge prefers Tier 1 due to the fact that in most cases tier 1 products are Vertically Integrated employing advanced Robotics employing manufacturing experience in excess of 5 years which provide high availability in most cases and most importantly are considered a "Bankable" product.

Yes, Panel and BOS Equipment Warranties Are the Manufacturers Listed Warranty.

Well recognized, reputable Tier 1 manufacturers and well-known BOS equipment manufacturers provide the manufactures stated warranty for that specific panel or BOS equipment. All warranty/RMA issues are taken care of between you and the manufacturer directly. PV Edge serves to align customer requirements with manufactured products, support the sale, terms and delivery. Panels and BOS equipment are purchased directly from manufacturers, EPC's, manufacturer networks, distributors or other legitimate supply sources and shipped to the requested delivery address. PV Edge does not & will not source from grey or other markets.
