Standard frame sizes and voltage for off-grid applications
Acquired by Solarworld in 2006
Shell Solar was actually formed when Royal Dutch Shell acquired Siemens Solar in 2002. However, this company did not last very long at all as the entire operation was purchased by SolarWorld in 2006.
Although this is still only the history for one small part of the company, as Shell’s solar divisions in different countries and regions around the globe were also sold off, mostly to smaller local companies in the area. SolarWorld still produces basically the same solar panels as Shell and Siemens did, and they even advertise that their panels are drop-in replacements for any of the previous versions of those companies’ panels.
