Berlin based Solon SE filed an application for the opening of insolvency proceedings.
The application was filed for Solon Photovoltaik GmbH, Solon Nord GmbH and Solon Investments GmbH yesterday.

Hi Valentino,

after one week i'm still sad about this.
Solon was my favorite manufacturer. After these PV modules run for nearly five years in my system, I am convinced that they can achieve a lifetime of about 30 years.
Even now, I would prefer these modules Chinese manufacturers. ...even without any guarantees.

With sunny regards

Hello eggis,

so what happens to your guarantees? Will the installer care for this or is it kind of "bad-luck" if they do not achieve a 30-year-lifetime?

Hi valentino!

I built the system itself. Since 2009 I have no product guarantee. That time it was not customary to have longer warranties.
The performance guarantees were in my opinion only advertising promises. You see, it has changed nothing for me through the SOLON bankruptcy.

It is the risk of each entrepreneur. ;?
