Solar adoption is speeding up, while prices continue to fall, and German Tier1 manufacturer AE Solar is already riding a wave of new solar innovations. Here are the top three:
NFC-chips in all PV panels to combat piracy
The international solar market is full of copycats developing fake PV modules under trustworthy brand names that are low quality, have short lifetimes and high degradation. To combat these challenges, AE Solar has integrated Near Field Communication (NFC) chips into every one of its solar panels.
The benefits include:
- Ensuring that every customer will receive the original product quality, warranty, and guarantee. Anyone who owns a smartphone can check the authenticity of AE Solar's products in seconds and, once the actual information on the origin of the product is made available, they will receive a long-term, 100% guarantee of sustainability.
- In one second, the NFC-Chip can provide the buyer with important information regarding their PV modules. The end customer can interact with the AE Solar team directly, share their comments, and receive feedback from professionals. This is a great way to communicate directly with the brand and track solar modules through a cloud database.
The AE Solar app is free to download for IOS and Android
