We manufacture our solar modules and cells exclusively in Germany, in Freiberg and Thalheim (city of Bitterfeld-Wolfen), using our very own production technology from Hohenstein-Ernstthal.
Our production runs with electricity from 100% renewable energies, relying on short transport routes and secure supply chains. This makes our high-performance solar modules particularly sustainable. Uncompromisingly sustainable.
It is crucial to us to contribute to regional value creation. That's why we prefer to work with local, regional, and European suppliers - creating jobs and saving CO2.
Save where it matters
In collaboration with Fraunhofer ISE, we recently completed an LCA (Life Cycle Assessment). This contains a life cycle evaluation of our Heterojunction solar module's entire product life cycle, from raw material extraction to module recycling, including the other system components.
- In contrast to a standard Chinese PERC module, we produce a total of 24% (for glass-backsheet modules) and 36% (for glass-glass modules) less CO2.
- We save 42% CO2 in poly-silicon production by using silicon from Wacker Chemie AG.
- On top of that, we can save 88% CO2 on our transport routes compared to a Chinese module.
- The energy payback time is less than one year for all Meyer Burger solar modules in a moderate continental climate.
"Our goal is not only to produce the best and most sustainable solar modules on the planet, but also to be a truly green company and to influence the industry with pioneering sustainability standards and benchmarks."
