Sol Distribution has partnered with AU Optronics (AUO), a global leader in the manufacturing of high quality, high efficiency back-contact monocrystalline solar panels. AUO Solar Panels provide an extremely good fit for applications where high efficiency panels are required, such as constrained roof areas or installations which have high balance of system costs. The 25-year workmanship warranty on the panels is reflective of the quality materials, components, systems and processes incorporated by AUO. The solar panels are well suited to extremely harsh environments, such are marine or desert areas, where the quality components and PID-Free characteristics of the panels ensure the panels keep producing power for 25 years and beyond.
The main AUO Solar Panel currently supplied by Sol Distribution is the 335W SunForte back-contact solar panel.
AUO is listed on the New York Stock Exchange, employs more than 45,000 people and generates more than US$10 billion in revenue annually. AUO is a diversified manufacturer with leading products in numerous markets such as LCD displays, projectors, precision components and LED solutions.

With cutting-edge technologies and unique product enhancements that stand the test of time, AUO solar panels are tested for power performance and durability in its state-of-the-art in-house laboratories recognized by the UL Witness Test Data Program. The modules are tested under stringent standards, including advanced testing up to three times more rigid than IEC test requirements. The thorough testing gives customers the extra confidence in the quality of AUO solar panels and the warranted power output they deliver.
AUO’s solar panels are PID-free, flame retardant and resistant to salt corrosion, humidity, as well as ammonia with reliable third-party certifications, enabling them to be safely utilized in challenging weather and environmental conditions, as well as diversified circumstances.
Currently, AUO participates in various solar panel recycling programs in the following countries:
• Germany: Since February 2016, Stiftung Elektro-Altgeräte Register (EAR) has approved AUO to operate in Germany (Registration Number: DE 76274570). European Recycling Platform (ERP) in Germany recycles all PV modules in AUO brand on behalf of AUO.
• Czech Republic: For AUO brand modules installed in the Czech Republic, AUO works with a local recycling agent ČEZ RC to recycle the end-of-life modules.
