SoloPower today became the first US ANSI/UL 1703-certified manufacturer of flat-plate, CIGS-based (copper-indium-gallium-selenide) PV modules. The Silicon Valley-based producer of thin-film solar photovoltaic cells and modules is well on the way to its goal of mass-producing PV modules.
Intertek, an independent, multi-national product safety certification organization, granted the ETL certification. The product was tested to meet ANSI/UL 1703, the developed standard for safety flat-plate photovoltaic modules and panels.
Being certified is an important technical and commercial achievement for SoloPower’s products in the US and Canada. The certification is an added third-party confirmation that the company’s PV modules conform to rigorous safety standards.
