The solar dinosaur

BISOL Group active in the solar industry since 2004, when it started manufacturing solar PV modules. PV mounting solutions and investments in solar power plants were added to the portfolio in 2009. Due to our long‑term presence in a still rather young, but highly competitive industry, some prefer to call us “one of the solar dinosaurs” or “the glowing rocks” due to our stability and financial strength.

Established and owned by engineers

To establish a solar company almost two decades ago, when fossil fuels were still not considered as one of the biggest threats to the survival of humankind, you need a vision. The founder of BISOL, dr Uroš Merc, had one and it became a reality to its full extent. Today solar energy is one of the most self-sufficient and cost-competitive energy sources across the globe.

 

Progressive thinking embraced by BISOL, manifests itself through the supreme quality, by which we explore one of the fundamental primary goods – green electricity!

We are giving the world into the hands of young generations, and we want to give it into the right hands. With more than 70 solar power plants owned by the company, BISOL Group produces ten times more electricity than it uses in the production of solar modules. Industrial waste is a burden to the environment left to future generations. At BISOL, we handle them very seriously. It is in our responsibility to participate in different PV module recycling programs and to continue developing our independent take-back systems. Manufacturing in Europe is another important contribution to our environmental endeavours because of the high standards that we are implementing and which help us to promote sustainability even further.

Environmentally sustainable company
