As long as a manufacturer is present at the market, they have to be held accountable for manufacturing faults. This can be very difficult if their place of jurisdiction is outside of Germany, as the case of solar modules of S-Energy proves.
To continuously check on the performance of solar panels or inverters, professional monitoring is required. Its value becomes apparent as soon as components become faulty – and the arguments over warranty start. An odyssey in four parts.
In case of damage, the operator of the installation can claim damages if the cause is known. Nobody goes and exchanges panels based on a hunch. The inspection should be left to the experts, even if the damage is obviously visible.
Inspecting faulty panels can be very complex. The costs usually have to be covered by the operator: First of all, in order to hold the manufacturer accountable, he has to prove that there was a fault.
