Solar PV Manufacturer Information

The fastest growing energy technology in the world is grid-connected solar PV. The industry saw 50% annual increases in cumulative installed capacity over 2006 and 2007 to an estimated 7.7GW. 1.5 million buildings now have rooftop photovoltaics feeding into the electricity grid worldwide. Europe, China, The United States, Japan, and Taiwan saw the most investment in solar PV cell manufacturing facilities in the last decade with many new operations reported.

Solar PV module manufacturers must be sure that the products they are producing will be sustainable for application periods of more than 25 years. Due to this, most solar manufacturers have their products approved by publically recognised testing organisations and guarantee their products longevity and efficiency for a period of 25 years. 
The year on year growth of solar PV module manufacture was estimated as high as 40% in 2011. The top 5 manufacturers at this point were First Solar, Yingli, Trina, Suntech and Canadian. These companies possessed 51.3% of the market share in solar PV modules. (According to PVinsights’ market intelligence report.)

There are more than 350 companies worldwide which manufacture PV cells. Please search here or find below a list of some of the largest Solar Panel manufacturing companies:
