Underwriters Laboratories (UL), an independent product safety certification organization, announced its certification of Solar Semiconductor for the SSI-3SG6-220 family of photovoltaic modules. With facilities located in Kompally and FabCity in Hyderabad, they are the first manufacturer in India to be certified for the wattage range of 198 to 242W.
UL’s Photovoltaic Technology Centers of Excellence are located in San Jose and Suzhou (China) where they both set standards and act as a third-party certification body in the Renewable Energy (RE) categories. Solar Semiconductor is a multinational company that produces PV products and services for the global solar PV market.
“UL’s global reach and enduring reputation has been instrumental in our decision to collaborate with them,” remarked Mr. Vishnu Reddy, VP of Quality and Reliability for Solar Semiconductor. “Getting the UL certification will enhance Solar Semiconductor’s access to the global PV market. UL certification is a demonstration of our strong commitment to high quality. We are proud to be the youngest company to achieve this milestone in the shortest span of our history. We are also working closely with UL for getting our Reliability and Testing Lab qualified for conducting safety tests as per UL and IEC standards”.
