Sparq Systems has earned both U.S. and Canadian certifications for its PV microinverter systems, allowing the Ontario-based company to sell its products to consumer markets. The firm has successfully completed testing to meet UL 1741, IEEE 1547, CSA C22.2 NO. 107.1 and FCC part 15, class B safety and performance standards.
The newly certificated products will be on display at Sparq's Intersolar North America 2011 exhibit (Booth 7446).
“These approvals are the strongest possible endorsement of the quality of our product,” said Praveen Jain, president/CEO of Sparq. “With these certifications in hand we are now fully equipped to address the rapidly expanding North American markets.”
“It’s extremely gratifying to see our technology receive these certifications,” added COO Randall North. “Tactically, SPARQ is now well positioned for volume manufacturing.”
The company recently partnered with EMS firm Sanmina-SCI to produce its microinverters and communications hubs for the consumer market. The systems will be manufactured for the Canadian market at Sanmina-SCI’s Ottawa facility, which is certified for Ontario’s feed-in tariff program, as well as at its worldwide regional facilities to meet global demand.
Sparq said it is also actively pursuing certifications for sale of its products outside North America.
