Bloomberg Tier-1

Analysis of the reliability of solar energy projects

Bloomberg, the provider of financial and investment analysis, has developed a classification system (Tier system) in which solar panels are divided into three levels: Tier-1, Tier-2 and Tier-3. This system is based on an analysis of the reliability of solar projects, which involves several evaluations.

The tier system allows investors, financiers and lenders, such as banks and financial institutions, to make decisions based on reliable information.

What are the criteria for Tier-1 solar panels?

Tier-1 solar panels are, according to Bloomberg criteria, panels produced by manufacturers that:

  • Carry out the entire production process themselves, from the initial phase of silicon wafer production to the assembly of the solar panels, which allows for complete quality control; manufacturers using external components do not qualify for the Tier 1 list;
  • Invest in research and development of solar panels, including the entire production process, to enable new and further product developments;
  • Use innovative technology for automation of production, ensuring a consistently high quality of finished products;
  • Have more than five years of production experience, which guarantees expertise and competence in the production of solar panels.

Why are Tier-1 solar panels the best choice?

The Bloomberg tier system, which is widely accepted throughout the world, has made solar modules from Tier-1 manufacturers the best-selling category of solar modules. In combination with the photovoltaic performance of these high-quality products, entrepreneurs investing in solar energy projects can also count on lifelong maintenance and services from Tier-1 manufacturers. In addition, projects using Tier-1 solar modules have a greater chance of receiving project financing than those using non-tier-1 components.
