UL to test Solar PV Panels
UL has always been a seal that has been trusted for consumer products, we are glad they have dedicated a testing facility just for solar pv panels, because we saw it to be a bottleneck in the industry. The lab has 14 test chambers and two solar simulators which provide both indoor and outdoor testing environments. The facility will also test power generation system accessories. The center will serve as a R&D lab for solar panels also which may push newer more efficient solar panels to the market even quicker then we are seeing. I suppose UL certification can help eliminate a myth some consumers believe in about solar power, “solar panels are just not reliable.” In fact solar panels are very reliable and now the industry has the full backing of UL. Look forward to many solar power products stamped with the UL seal in the near future.
