From September onwards, aleo solar AG will offer its polycrystalline module S_18 with certified European components. Ingots, wafers and modules are produced within the European Economic Area.
The aleo product therefore fulfills the criteria specified by the French Ministry of the Environment and is certified for a “Made in Europe” bonus. This means that photovoltaic operators in France will enjoy a ten percent higher feed-in tariff when using those modules. The aleo S_18 also received the carbon footprint certificate by the French photovoltaic engineering company Solstyce. With its grades the aleo module is highly qualified for the French public tenders.
The French testing and certification laboratory Certisolis confirms that the silicon wafers fulfill the conditions applicable to the decrees issued by the French Ministry of the Environment in January 2013: “All stages of processing multicrystalline silicon blocks to silicon wafers are performed in Germany.” On top of this, the VDE testing institute certified that aleo modules are manufactured within the European Economic Area. All stages of production – from soldering the cells through to lamination and electrical testing – take place in Prenzlau (in the German federal state of Brandenburg), where aleo solar has been producing solar modules for more than ten years.
Already since May 2013, a ten percent bonus is also available for aleo’s monocrystalline S_19 and S_79 modules. The corresponding Solrif modules and laminates for building-integrated systems (BIPV) have as well been certified.
