Calisolar modules receive TÜV Rheinland certification


Calisolar recently received IEC 61730 and IEC 61215 certification from TÜV Rheinland for modules built with Calisolar cells. The 60-cell modules passed all tests for their certification for proven demonstration to withstand in performance, durability, efficiency, stability and safety over extended periods of time. The certified modules produce up to 250W using Calisolar’s multicrystalline solar cells with over 16% efficiency.

“The strenuous tests conducted by TÜV Rheinland simulate years of exposure to weather—sunlight, extreme temperatures, snow, rain and even hail—giving our customers the highest levels of confidence in any Open Renewables products made using Calisolar cells,” said Open Renewables CEO Rui Lobo. “Calisolar cells easily integrated into our existing module design without modification, and the modules obtained certification on the first pass, a remarkable demonstration of great execution by both companies.”
