Cobolt Blue Energy is a values-driven organisation and our ethics underpin these values. The business was created to enable residential and commercial customers to maximise their use of renewable energy.

This means more than simply converting the highest number of customers to renewable energy.

It means looking at the entire supply chain and ensuring that it fits with our values.

Not all Solar Systems are as environmentally friendly as others!

The Solar Panel Supply Chain

A typical solar panel could have as many as 800 companies involved in its production. These companies tend to be spread out across the planet. This means that the carbon footprint for the cumulative distance travelled by each of these components can be extremely high.

Solar Panel Efficiency

The greater the efficiency of a solar panel, the less non-renewable energy you will use. As such, a system’s efficiency (how good it is at converting solar energy into usable electricity) has a direct effect on the carbon footprint of your home or business.

Solar Panel Durability

It seems obvious, but the longer a solar panel system exists, the fewer will need to be produced. And, because not every component in a solar panel can currently be recycled, a longer-lasting system will also contribute less to landfill.

Material Used in the Manufacture of Solar Panels

Even though the end product is a huge contributor to the green agenda, it is an inconvenient truth that material used in some solar panels are not environmentally friendly.

If this is something that concerns you, then look into a panel’s components. Typically, they might have used lead or aggressive solvents in manufacture. Plastics used could include toxins such as PFAS (Polyfluoroalkyl substances).

Green Factories

The factory that has produced your panels or their components may themselves not rely on renewable energy. Only those manufacturers who are strategically dedicated to a green agenda ensure they rely on 100% renewable energy.


If you are able to store excess renewable energy, it means you won’t need to default to non-renewable sources when it runs out. The storage of solar energy is more accessible and affordable than ever, meaning your home or business can be 100% reliant on renewable energy.

Cobolt Blue Energy and Meyer Burger: A partnership forged through a love for our planet.


What Clients Say About Meyer Burger Solar Panels

Customer feedback is a key part of our quality assurance process. Here is some of the feedback that we have received about the quality of the Meyer Burger Solar Panels that we supply.

Meyer Burger was recommended to us because it is a German brand manufacturer with reliable quality in production. This is something that is also important for our business. Our customers also expect very high quality from our business and I have the same demand for a photovoltaic system. I am totally happy and would recommend Meyer Burger in any case.
Detlef Crützen, Managing Director Crützen Floristik
Our customers choose us because we focus on quality and attractive design. Meyer Burger is the best choice to meet all requirements for a perfect installation. All aspects of quality, performance, aesthetics and warranty come together here to form one large entity.
Robert Nordh, Managing Director, Nordh Energy Solar AB
With solar modules from Meyer Burger, we consciously opted for a product that is manufactured in Germany according to high quality and social standards. The short supply chains in production make the module even more sustainable. Meyer Burger Glass was chosen due to special fire protection requirements in the densely built-up centreof Freiberg. In combination with an energy storage system, we are able to largely cover the annual electricity demand with self generated green electricity. Of course, this is particularly worthwhile for heat pump operation.
Torsten Bergt, homeowner
We would recommend Meyer Burger based on the good quality of the products themselves. Production takes place in Germany, which was a key criterion for us in the selection process, and we were also extremely happy with the customer service we received. We would therefore definitely have Meyer Burger products installed on one of our multi-storey car parks again.
