After the module prices have been falling continuously since last November, it seems to have been the last reduction in February 2023. At least from the manufacturer's side, no more price reductions are to be expected for the time being. The reasons given are increased polysilicon costs and expected bottlenecks in other materials. Occasionally there is even talking about the expense of solar panels. At dealer level, however, there is still no sign of this. After prices were initially dominated by sales of goods bought at higher prices last year, there are gradual downward price adjustments in order to remain competitive and to clean up inventories.
Even if it's sometimes difficult - installers and purchase manager of the larger EPC should fulfill their commercial obligations and accept the ordered modules on time at the agreed, sometimes somewhat high prices from the current perspective. Delaying the purchase of goods when prices are falling and then wanting to renegotiate is a bad habit that very few suppliers allow. After all, we wholesalers don't want to enrich ourselves, but usually pass on price increases and discounts one-to-one to our customers. Anyone who wants security and buys the required goods well in advance must also be able to live with price fluctuations in the meantime.
