Ten Per Cent Higher Feed-in Tariff for Centrosolar Solar Systems in Italy

Hamburg - Solar energy system operators in Italy profit from a ten per cent increase in feed-in tariffs when they decide to purchase their solar systems from Centrosolar. According to Italy's new feed-in legislation (Conto Energia IV), system operators receive higher tariffs as long as they implement solar systems that are made in Europe. Centrosolar is one of Germany's manufacturers to receive a certification that confirms that the Centrosolar solar factory meets the ‘European production' requirements.

Centrosolar has commissioned Germany's TUV Rheinland (Technical Inspection Association Rheinland), an internationally recognised certifying body that is accredited in the IEC system, to perform the accreditation. The certificate, issued in early August, confirms that 60 per cent of the value created during the manufacturing of system components takes place within Europe. This value refers to the essential steps in the manufacturing process, such as the lamination and interconnection of the cells. Centrosolar manufactures all of its modules in its solar factory in Northern Germany. Crystalline solar modules that belong to the elite product class in international competition have been built for ten years now in Wismar. Centrosolar is currently expanding production to include a second plant and expects to achieve a production capacity of 350 MWp by the end of the year, which corresponds to a daily output of 7,000 solar modules. Production is certified in accordance with DIN ISO 9001:2008 and meets the strict requirements of this internationally recognised quality management system.

"The certification once again affirms our Europe-based manufacturing approach. For over ten years, we have been producing high-quality, globally competitive solar modules in Germany. If our customers in Italy also receive a financial reward for selecting quality German products, then even better," says Dr. Alexander Kirsch, CEO of Centrosolar Group AG.
