TÜV Rheinland has issued its Safety Class II certification to Solar EnerTech’s photovoltaic modules, which will enable the company to sell its products to a wider spectrum of customers primarily based in Europe.
The Menlo Park, CA-based solar cell and panel design firm has a 50MW manufacturing line in its 63,000-square-foot facility in Shanghai.
“We are pleased that our PV products have received the certificate of compliance with TÜV’s specific standards,” commented CEO Leo Young. “This certification offers our current and potential buyers with increased confidence during their purchasing process, as it provides an independent validation of the quality and safety of our module products.”
“The TÜV certification will allow us to increase our market share in Europe as we continue to deliver state-of-the-art, high quality products,” he concluded.
Solar EnerTech has also established a joint R&D lab at Shanghai University to develop higher efficiency cells and to incorporate the results of that research in its manufacturing processes.
