Reliability of Solar Panels and Batteries
- Oct 13, 2020 4:39 am GMT
Solar panels are long term assets – guaranteed by every manufacturer for at least 25 years. Lithium ion batteries are guaranteed by most manufacturers for at least 10 years. But no major solar panel manufacturers have been in business for 25 years, and no major battery companies have been shipping residential systems for 10 years.
So how can a homeowner, building owner or financing company assess the reliability of solar panels and batteries? The best way is to scientifically gather and assess reliability data for these components. To be objective, this reliability analysis must be done by an independent organization – not by manufacturers.
PV Evolution Labs is the leading independent lab for equipment testing. They assess the bankability of PV modules, inverters, storage, and other balance-of-system equipment. Joining us on this week’s Energy Show is Jenya Meydbray, CEO and co-founder of PV Evolution Labs.
Please join us on this week’s Energy Show Podcast as Jenya talks about the founding of PV Evolution Labs and shares his insights on reliability of solar panels and batteries. Jenya and I also share our real-world reliability advice as manufacturers, contractors and technologies come and go over the years.

On this episode of the PI Energy Podcast, we talk to Timothy Kim, founder and CEO of ibV Energy Partners. They are a utility-scale solar and storage company who collaborate with businesses and local energy providers to expand solar.
Mr. Burns of Simpson’s fame — the personification of utility greed and political power — is happily rubbing his hands together as California roasts in the dark. And this situation will get much worse in the coming years.
I keep seeing that there are amazing renewable and storage technologies, and I REALLY believe that California can meet its climate change mitigation goals. I just hope the rest of the world can follow in our path.
