Our 3 pillars upon which your energy future is built

We are consistently pursuing our mission "power to the people". We are the only German systems provider which can supply you with all the essential PV components for your energy self-sufficiency – in premium quality. We take ownership of targeted research and development of all our products for a greener future. By combining our core competencies of energy production, energy management, and energy storage, you get a system with maximum service life, maximum efficiency, and maximum safety.

Innovative and high-quality products

We established glass-glass technology as a new standard for modules back in 1998. These modules are characterized by a particularly long service life, extreme robustness, and maximum yields. Decades of experience and state-of-the-art manufacturing standards ensure top quality for your solar electricity production.

Our intelligent energy management tool optimizes the use of solar power from your own roof. The EnergyManager measures, switches on and off, and visualizes all aspects of your photovoltaic system and all power-consuming appliances in your household.

Battery storage enables near self-sufficiency with solar energy. Only with a battery can solar power produced during the day can be used at night. In 2015, we developed MyReserve, the most economical and safest power storage system that revolutionized the market at the time. In 2016, the battery specialists from e-Wolf in Frechen were integrated into the SOLARWATT Group. The storage experts working there have already gained experience in Formula 1 (racing) for efficient charging and discharging of batteries. The results are batteries of the highest caliber, which makes them not only ecologically meaningful, but also financially worthwhile.

Despite the constant expansion of the product portfolio, the company remains true to its principles: All glass-glass moduls, our battery and the EnergyManager are Made in Germany and of the highest quality.
