Solar cells are combined to form larger units – modules – in the module production process. Modules are enclosed in frames and weather-proofed. Solar modules are finished solar products and fully equipped for generating electricity (DC) from sunlight. Inverters convert this direct current to alternating current so that it can be fed into the public grid. Unconverted electricity can also be used at the generation location itself.
The main production locations of the group are in Freiberg, Arnstadt and Hillsboro (USA). The unparalleled production process at SolarWorld Industries Sachsen GmbH ensures that the solar module production process is fully automated. Regular electrical and optical measurements during production and thorough testing in all phases of production guarantee constant high quality. After framing, the final product is tested and packaged for shipment.
