We are often asked what effects the 2019 novel coronavirus has on our industry. Unfortunately, that’s not to say at last. The fact is, the production facilities in China are closed.
There are currently no modules produced. Everything that has left the factories is on the way and comes to Europe as ordered. But afterwards there will be a gap.
The tip to switch to German or European manufacturers is not very helpful. Almost all suppliers procure any component (cell, glass, frame, junction box …) from China and are also affected. So there will be bottlenecks and rising prices for the modules.
The further development will depend crucially on when production starts again.We’ll keep you up to date.
