Check the solar module for wear – when your module is not as new as it was any more
Photovoltaic modules are noted for their durability over many years
and usually only age "around" the edges ...
The outer casing of PV modules ages faster than the cells
Do you have any questions about the measurement procedure?
or individual requirements?
PV modules have a very
long life, but ...
As a rule, solar modules last for 20 to 25 years – as far as the guarantee is concerned. However, according to experts from the Frauenhofer Institute, there are no physical reasons that should limit the function of a solar cell installed in the module. This means that a solar cell can function for 40 years or more. Of course, sound workmanship is always a prerequisite.
Problems occur "around the edges“ –
therefore the solar module should be checked for wear
Problems can occur more with the other materials. The front glass, non-watertight junction boxes or the film on the back can impair the function of PV modules as a result of wear. Factors such as soiling or browning in the plastics used can also shorten the effective life of the modules. SUNLAB checks PV modules for their degree of wear.
Wear can be seen as follows:
Connections and inverters
Measures to tackle
and prevent wear and tear:
Carefully cleaned and maintained modules over a long period of time are essential for a long and effective life. Diligence and care are indeed rewarded in this respect. Contact us if you would like us to advise you on measures to prevent wear and tear to your modules. Contact...
Preventing loss of performance:
SUNLAB will test your solar modules in order to rule out possible failures from the outset. Only a module that works flawlessly delivers the performance for which it is intended – and which you are expecting. SUNLAB will detect any failures to give you the certainty that your PV modules are working flawlessly and are driving your energy transition forward. If you have any questions, please contact us: Contact...
for insurance companies:
The module test in SUNLAB is recommended in order to establish any loss of performance for a claim on your insurance policy. Wear is determined using high-tech equipment.
SUNLAB would be happy to act as a contact person for your insurance company in order to provide professionally verified results for claims settlement. Contact...

If photovoltaics or solar modules show signs of wear, SUNLAB can carry out the necessary tests. Whether the systems come directly from the manufacturers or from customers is irrelevant. The performance of the solar modules in the test provides reliable results. The output of solar modules is important – especially if manufacturers of solar modules wish to ensure the best quality. Since electricity from roof-based renewable energy sources is becoming increasingly important, trouble-free PV systems are essential for this energy transition.
Other search engine-relevant terms:
Whether manufacturers, installers or end customers: SUNLAB is ready to assess your module. The solar cells are the core of the photovoltaic system – their performance and efficiency in generating electricity are important. Thanks to fully functioning photovoltaic modules, you can generate electrical energy from your roof-based solar system.
