SolarBuyer provides expert technical diligence, procurement assistance and quality assurance services for solar installers, project developers, independent engineers and investors globally. We leverage direct relationships with manufacturers to independently assess product quality, manage product risk and assure the field safety, reliability and performance of shipped product.
Our independent assessments are designed to evaluate product quality and identify potential safety, reliability and performance risks. Assessments are based on in-depth, expert evaluations of product design, materials and manufacturing. By operating independently, SolarBuyer avoids the conflict of interest inherent in manufactured-funded bankability assessments.
Our professional quality assurance services are designed to independently check and verify the quality of solar products built for specific projects or fleets. Our services include manufacturing oversight, pre- and post-shipment inspection and testing. We apply state-of-the-art quality criteria and defect management techniques.
Our procurement assistance services help buyers and investors integrate risk and quality management into product supply contracts. We also provide vendor selection, qualification and product contracting services for buyers that leverage our large network of manufacturer relationships.
Our field services are designed to provide buyers and owners with product quality assessments after installation - including time-of-manufacturing quality data reviews, field inspections, field degradation rate evaluations and warranty claim support.
