Yingli solar panels in Australia

As one of the world’s largest solar panel manufacturers, Yingli Solar is a leader in solar PV technology, with almost 10% global market share and over 40 million solar panels generating energy around the world.

Yingli Solar focuses on connecting world-class technology, manufacturing, supply and logistics with their teams of local experts, ensuring that they’re anticipating and meeting the needs of Australian solar customers, be they homeowners, businesses or power companies.

Yingli makes all the key components of their solar panels, starting with raw materials such as silicon, and producing everything through to the rigorously tested final product.

Established in 1998 as a “Tier 1” manufacturer, they’ve focussed on innovation and research to develop superior quality solar panels governed by stringent in-house quality assurance and vertically integrated production.

The Australian Solar Council has recently given Yingli Solar their stamp of approval as a foundation partner of their “Positive Quality” program, a comprehensive 60-point production line check and random spot checks.

Yingli solar: Key points of difference:

  • A global market leader: listed on the NYSW since 2007 and currently the largest solar manufacturer in the world (2012 and 2013). The company is a tier 1 manufacturer with 30 offices worldwide.
  • Proven track record: With over 40 million panels (10GW) deployed globally, nearly 1 out of every 10 panels installed around the world are made by Yingli Solar
  • Highly rated by independent experts:
  • Better quality manufacturing: Yingli was the first vertically integrated manufacturer of solar panels in the world, meaning that all key components and manufacturing processes are handled internally by Yingli. This focus on quality gives customers the confidence that their panels will last for 25+ years.
  • Cutting edge technology:  Yingli puts  a major focus on innovation, with 3 global R&D centres collaborating for continuous improvement. The company’s PANDA n-type silicon panels (described below) were the first innovative architecture for crystalline silicon solar cells in mass production in 10 years. Yingli has also formed an alliance with some of the world’s leading research facilities (State Key Laboratories for Photovoltaic Materials and Technology)
  • High quality at a fair price: Leading product quality combined with leading low cost, thanks to economies of scale. This means excellent value for money.
  • Outstanding customer support: Yingli have dedicated local sales and technical support from their 100% Australian office. Panel warranties in Australia (25 year performance warranty and 10 year product warranty) are supported by this local office.
  • Focus on sustainability:  Yingli joined the WWF Climate Savers Initiative in 2013 (being the only solar PV manufacturer and only Chinese company to sign up). The company has many certifications and independent awards for labour, social and environmental standards (for example: SA8000, ISO 1800, 1SO 14001). Additionally, Yingli has consistently been rated in the top 3 global manufacturers by Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition over the last 5 years, and was the first company in the global PV sector to obtain the Product Carbon Footprint Assessment from TUV Rheinland.

 Yingli solar panels: Product lines

PANDA Series: N-type monocrystalline panels

Yingli Panda 60-cellUnlike most monocrystalline panels, the PANDA Series use n-type silicon. n-type silicon gives a range of benefits, including higher conversion efficiencies (sunlight-to-electricity) and better performance under low-light conditions (winter, overcast skies, dusk and dawn).

They are ideally suited for residential and small-scale commercial use, particularly where there is limited roof space and where there is a need to maximize power output in low-light conditions or maximise energy outputs.

PANDA 60-cell series

  • Standard-sized module of the PANDA Series
  • Module efficiency up to 17.2%
  • Peak module power output of 265-275 W

YGE series: High-performance polycrystalline panels

The YGE Series are high-performing polycrystalline solar panels, independently tested for proven product quality and long-term reliability. Millions of PV systems installed worldwide demonstrate Yingli’s industry leadership. Benefits of the YGE series include durability, advanced glass and potential induced degradation (PID) resistance.

YGE 60-cell series

YGL 72-cell series

  • Largest of the YGE portfolio; ideal for commercial power plants
  • Cell efficiency of 17.7%
  • Peak module power output of 290-310 W
  • Download a spec sheet (PDF)


  • Manufacturing facilities certified by TÜV Rheinland.
  • All PANDA and YGE modules are UL and IEC certified.
  • All modules are ammonia- and salt corrosion-test certified.

  1. I live on a yacht, and am wanting to purchase just one solar panel.
    The panel I am interested in is the YL275P-29B 60 cell series 2.
    On the Yingli website they claim 18.5% cell efficiency, yet on this website I can not establish this 18,5% efficiency!
    I am based in Sydney, and obviously, I would like to receive your quote for one panel, delivered to my son’s offices in North Ryde , NSW
    Kind regards…Konrad de Vos

    1. Hi Konrad,

      Sorry but we don’t supply individual products, as we are a brokerage & comparison service. You might want to check out Ebay.com.au or another online shopping site to get what you’re after.

      Best of luck!

  2. thanks for your information’s and your products we had in Sudan (sudani networks project 2007 -170 ) .
    so if you could pleas send deals of the above project particularly for the link of Khartoum dongola – north state -Sudan .
    once more thanks and keep me in contact .
