Design Reviews

SolarBuyer design reviews are intended to evaluate the design quality of a solar product. The product design – including specifications, structures and components – can have an influence on the safety, reliability and performance of the product in the field.

Design reviews are often coupled with factory audits. The product design may require certain manufacturing processes, components or tolerances in order to deliver a quality product; conversely manufacturing methods may compromise the design if not correctly deployed or designed to meet the design need.

SolarBuyer experts have had direct experience designing and developing solar products for over 15 years – including PV cells, modules, inverters and smart electronics. SolarBuyer design reviews include detailed assessments of the following:

  • Bills of materials
  • Component selection
  • Component specifications versus operating conditions
  • Mechanical and electrical design
  • Architecture and topology (electronics only)
  • Packaging, labeling and shipping
  • Performance specifications
  • Reliability specifications
  • System interactions and compatibility
  • Software design (if applicable)
