Test winner for green electricity
Our customers and partners are not the only ones to confirm that we do good work. aleo solar modules also regularly receive top ratings in independent practical tests. We score well in precisely the categories which really matter to the consumer in the end: performance, reliability and durability which go far beyond the legal requirements.
Fraunhofer ISE "endurance test"
As part of its PV Durability Initiative (PVDI), the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE put modules from eight manufacturers through an "endurance test". The test went beyond the usual standards by simulating the kind of stresses that a solar module is likely to experience over its lifetime. At the end of the extensive tests series, the performance of the aleo module was stable: even after the toughest tests, losses remained in the single-digit percentage range. The aleo module passed through without any objections the electrical safety tests.
The aleo S_18 module was one of the winners in the big module test conducted by the consumer magazine Ökotest (04/2010 issue). aleo earned nothing less than a “very good” among the 15 modules from German and international manufacturers tested in total. The basis for evaluation was an output measurement conducted by PHOTON Laboratory in Aachen.
The aleo S_16 module emerged as the clear test victor in the module test conducted by Stiftung Warentest (05/2006 issue). With the best mark of 1.9, especially the aleo module’s good power production, durability and safety were awarded. The test covered solar modules from 15 different manufacturers.
Yield comparison by the Flensburg University of Applied Sciences
The aleo modules also performed convincingly in terms of yield in a study conducted by the Flensburg University of Applied Sciences. A total of seven different brand modules were tested for an entire year on a trial plant belonging to the Flensburg public utility company. The result speaks for itself: The aleo S_16 module achieved by far the greatest electricity yields - up to eleven per cent greater than the comparison models.
Test by the Schleswig-Holstein Chamber of Agriculture
aleo modules deliver power yields which are approximately five per cent greater than thin-film modules based on cadmium telluride - that’s the summary of a two-year test phase conducted by the Schleswig-Holstein Chamber of Agriculture. What this means for an operator is an equity return about 1.7 percentage points higher.
