REFUsol has received its official certificate from Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for four of its products, which include its REFUsol 012K-UL, 016K-UL, 020K-UL and 024K-UL. Its products originally passed safety testing in October with the company noting that its products are now dually listed in the CSI List of Eligible Inverters, which verifies that the devices have an efficiency rate of up to 98%.
With its new UL certificates, REFUsol is looking to expand its US business and expects to have inverters shipped by early 2012. “The US market is key for us,” explains Juergen Schwarz, VP of Operations for REFU Solar Electronics, the subsidiary that will handle sales, services, and marketing activities. “We've had great success throughout Europe but the demand for efficient solar energy is on the rise in the US market, and we're looking forward to growing in this increasingly robust marketplace.”
To help with the anticipated sales from its products, REFU Solar Electronics, has added four new team members: Mark Ledbetter, David Khuen and Kevin Tripp in sales with Joe Kidd in service. They will help the current team cover the North American market. “We will have presence in Los Angeles; San Jose; New Jersey; South Carolina; Denver; Chicago; and Dallas,” Alan Beale, REFU Solar Electronics VP of sales and marketing. “The addition of personnel to our team will help us to meet our goals in this new market. With proven products that operate with high efficiency and attractive features, we're certain that our sales will be strong now that we are able to ship product.”
