In 2012 and 2013, Yingli Solar held the title as the #1 solar module manufacturer in the world in terms of annual solar module capacity sales.

  • Value for money: Yingli Solar’s solar modules are not the most efficient solar modules on the market, but they are one of the best options (if not the best) when it comes to kilowatts of electricity production capacity per dollar (normal English: electricity per dollar).
  • Solar module variety: When it comes to home solar, there are basically two main solar module technologies – multicrystalline silicon solar and monocrystalline silicon solar. Yingli produces both, offering installers, developers, and consumers the type of technology they prefer.
  • Wide installer network: As the #1 solar module manufacturer, Yingli is connected to a wide network of solar installers. It has a very simple and clear website that helps you find an installer in your area.
  • Prices: Due to U.S. trade decisions to add duties to Chinese solar technology, the price of Yingli solar modules for U.S. consumers has risen in the past year or so.
  • Limitations: If you are limited by space and need very efficient solar modules, Yingli’s solar modules are probably not for you.
  • Best for Homeowners, small & large businesses, government agencies & nonprofits, leasing & PPA customers, solar beginners, cash & loan consumers, DIY solar users
