Bloomberg NEF Tier 1
The official origin of the phrase “tier 1” solar panels comes from Bloomberg New Energy Finance. The group first developed the tiered system for PV modules to create a transparent differentiation among the many solar manufacturers, so financial institutions could easily determine which brands were “bankable.” BNEF tracks past solar projects (sized over 1.5 MW) approved by banks and the products used in those projects lend to what tier they fall into. If projects using XYZ modules have consistently been approved for financing, then Company XYZ will likely be a tier 1 supplier.
