After passing rigorous tests, Bisol Group’s PV modules have been awarded the ANSI/UL 1703 certification which is mandatory for the US and Canadian market. The certification indicates that the modules comply with all the safety and quality regulations for the US and Canadian market.
The tests were performed by the German TÜV Rheinland laboratory. Among the tests were a temperature test, current leakage and wet insulation-resistance test, intrusive hot spot test and a fire test.
Bisol PV modules sustained all the rigorous conditions without any notable loss in performance or any other electrical or mechanical defects. Tests confirmed the quality of the modules and therefore compliance with North American regulations.
This new certification will enable Bisol to expand into the US and Canada. According to EPIA’s Global Market Outlook 2016 report, new PV installations in the US reached 1.6GW while new Canadian PV installations hit 364MW in 2011. The US market has been booming and represents the second biggest market share outside Europe.
