Chinese PV manufacturer ReneSola has announced it has received a Certificate of Approval from SAA Approvals for its Micro Replus microinverter.
SAA Approvals is a third-part certification body accredited by the Joint Accreditation Service of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ). It issues Certificates of Approval for electrical equipment which has proven to comply with the safety requirements of the applicable Australian Standard.
The certification means that ReneSola is now able to export its microinverter to Australia and sell the product in the country. Earlier in 2012 the company received ETL and CEC certifications from Intertek which allowed the company to sell the microinverter in the US and Canada.
Xianshou Li, ReneSola's Chief Executive Officer said: “Now that Micro Replus has received SAA Approval Certification, we believe it will be well adopted by the Australian market. Our SAA, ETL and CEC certifications are a testament to the performance, credibility and safety of our product. Micro Replus increases the energy output of solar modules, especially when covered in shade or debris. We have developed it with the goal of lowering prices for end users while increasing margins for installers through installer-direct turnkey solutions. We hope to capitalise on Australia's fast-growing solar market, as well as on the recent success of our module business, to grow our microinverter business in 2013.”
