In order to ensure and provide the best quality/price ratio of the market, Upsolar designs, creates and produces high quality modules through its first-class vertically integrated manufacturing partners. Upsolar controls each stage of the production flow and continues its efforts in research & development to ensure the quality.
Upsolar's mission since the company's inception has been to provide the global PV market an opportunity to purchase a “made in China” product of market leading quality, at competitive price. The company has since developed its focus on providing an excellent product, meeting all international quality standards while offering the most competitive prices available from a Chinese manufacturing base.
The cornerstone of Upsolar's success has been the rigorous quality-control management protocol we have developed. Upsolar employees implement these online QC Management standards at all partner manufacturing facilities in collaboration with 3rd party QC management provider, Bureau Veritas; helping Upsolar to continually improve upon these processes while conducting audits of all Upsolar products prior to shipment. Combined with our in-house R & D center, industry standard warranties, performance guarantee through innovative insurance coverage and international presence, Upsolar can guarantee its customer-base an extremely reliable PV module, providing protection from power-loss or supply-shortages.
Upsolar's high quality products could not be produced without the implementation of first class equipment at our production partner's manufacturing facilities, such as Roth & Rau, Applied Materials/Baccini, Spire, ASYS and NPC. Upsolar also maintains strong relationships with best-of-breed components and materials suppliers such as Tyco, MC, Saint-Gobain, Isovolta, Bridgestone and Dow Corning. This combination of top-tier manufacturing equipment and module components enable Upsolar to produce some of the highest quality, dependable PV modules in the world, preventing Upsolar customers from encountering substantial output power loss during the 25 year life of their modules.
Finally, beginning December 31, 2010, Upsolar's PV modules will be backed by PowerGuard Specialty Insurance Services' comprehensive PowerCLIP warranty. Upsolar's PowerCLIP warranty is unparalleled in the industry, offering the most contractual liability coverage available for solar PV manufacturers. PowerCLIP securitizes and “back-stops” Upsolar's warranty coverage – a significant added benefit for Upsolar's customers as well as for the banks, lenders and investment firms who support them.
