You’ve been told German made solar panels no longer exist. Such a statement couldn’t be any further from the truth.

What’s better, there are even greater benefits now to purchase German-made solar than ever before.

A must view when considering an Aleo Power Network provider for installation in Perth, Mandurah and Bunbury region, Western Australia.
German-made solar products, like many, have come and gone from the Australian market over the years. However, the manufacturing origin synonymous with outstanding product quality is making a resurgence in a market now saturated by cheaper imports despite the perceived greater specifications.
With cheaper products often come cheaper installation methods in order to create the “so-called” deal of a lifetime. Despite the nominated warranty of any particular solar panel, if it isn’t installed to manufacturer specifications, there is no warranty. Such a scenario is the perfect loophole for low-cost manufacturers, and consumers will inevitably buy twice.
Addressing such issues, the Aleo Power Network is a German quality standard installation program ensuring the quality solar modules one purchases has a quality installation to match.
As opposed to striving for industry leading specifications, German manufacturing has always focused more so on overall product quality and longterm durability. Therefore, Aleo solar modules may not posses any ground breaking “sports car like” specifications, however, your energy guarantee is a marathon, not a sprint.

Interestingly, despite higher wattages of many solar panels in 2020/21, the efficiency is almost identical to the above Aleo X59 series (currently available in Australia). Why so? Most solar module technology hasn’t improved, the module is simply accommodating a greater surface area for a perceived technology improvement.
Focusing on maintaining the product integrity from the moment it leaves the factory, Aleo arranges pallet distribution in a unique portrait formation (opposed to the more common landscape formation). The result ensures less chance of module warping, cell fracturing and micro-cracks when shipping across the world.
With the proven benefits of portrait style solar panel distribution, why are alternative manufactured modules not shipped in such a manner? Cost.
Portrait formations loaded on to pallets occupy less cost-effective shipping container due to redundancy of upper container space as pallets are unable to be stacked on top of each other. Without added weight affecting underlying modules on an international journey, product integrity is better maintained.
The preferred supply chain for any Aleo solar panel is as follows;
Aleo Factory > Authorised Aleo Distributor > Aleo Power Network Installer > Your roof.
Possessing an intimate product knowledge ensures such product care is maintained for the final leg of the journey, distribution to your roof and to endure the next 25-years is specifically what an Aleo Power Network provider is trained to uphold.
