Microchip shortage is forcing Panasonic to cut production of solar panels for the home



Panasonic will soon cease production of a key component for home solar power plants due to a global shortage of semiconductor products. At the end of June, the manufacturer sent a notice to customers that it would postpone the supply of power conditioners or stabilizers.

This is how the consequences of the March fire at the Renesas Electronics microcircuit factory are manifested. Although the situation is expected to return to normal by January next year, 20-30% of normal production will be under-shipped during that time.

According to Tokyo-based consulting agency RTS, stabilizers for solar power plants with a total capacity of about 6.8 GW were sold in Japan last year. It is estimated that home solar power plants account for about 30% of the supply in terms of capacity, but more in quantitative terms, because the average capacity of the home system is less, so there are more systems themselves than industrial systems.

Panasonic is a leading supplier of solar home stabilizers with about 30% market share. It is followed by the Japanese companies Omron and Tabuchi Electric. Incidentally, these companies have admitted that they are also experiencing a shortage of components.
