San José, California USA, August 21, 2023— Boviet Solar Technology Co. Ltd. (the “Company” or “Boviet Solar”), a one of the leading solar energy technology companies specializing in manufacturing of Monocrystalline PV cells, Gamma Series™ Monofacial and Vega Series™ Bifacial PV Modules, has been ranked as a Tier 1 PV module manufacturer by BloombergNEF (BNEF) for Q3 2023, the company announced today. Boviet Solar is BNEF Tier 1 PV Module manufacturer since 2017.
BloombergNEF’s tiering system for PV module manufacturers is based on bankability, to help purchasers of PV modules distinguish between the hundreds of modules available today. To be ranked as Tier 1, the manufacturer must have provided in-house manufactured PV modules to six different projects that have been non-recourse financed by six different banks over the past two years. Since non-recourse financing does not allow the lender to pursue anything other than collateral, it’s an indication that the bank has confidence in the PV module manufacturer. Boviet Solar has achieved the BNEF Tier 1 rating [for every quarter] in 2021, 2022 as well as Q1 and Q2 of 2023.
“The Tier 1 designation serves as independent validation of Boviet Solar’s performance as a business partner since it rates PV module manufacturers on bankability or financial stability,” said Jimmy Xie, CEO of Boviet Solar.
“When looking for a PV module partner, bankability matters just as much as top performing PV modules and cost-effectiveness,” said Sienna Cen, President of Boviet Solar USA. “Being ranked as a Tier 1 solar module maker by BloombergNEF gives Boviet third-party validation of our financial stability—a great complement to our technology, engineering, and manufacturing capabilities. Tier 1 status should give our customers added assurance that partnering with Boviet Solar is a wise choice for any solar project.”
