PID free label solar panels

Are ‘PID free’ solar panels really free from degradation?

Many solar panel manufacturers claim their panels are ‘PID free’, which should mean that they will not suffer any efficiency losses due to Potential Induced Degradation. However, in practice ‘PID free’ does NOT mean no degradation will occur. Potential Induced [...]

PIDbox on system level

Proper functioning PIDbox proven on system level

After some time, solar panels are subjected to Potential Induced Degradation (PID). The performance of PID affected panels decreases, which obviously does not benefit the profitability of the installations. PID can be detected by means of an electroluminescence test. This test [...]
