(ADPnews) – Oct 4, 2010 - Chinese photovoltaic (PV) equipment manufacturer CNPV Solar Power SA (EPA:ALCNP) on Monday said it has achieved key certification for its crystalline silicon solar PV modules, paving the way for a major foray into the lucrative North American market.
With UL (US) and C-UL (Canada) certifications under its belt, the company is now planning to open new sales offices in California and Canada.
“The certification further validates our improvements in manufacturing standards and process efficiencies as well as our commitment to superior operating performance, safety and stability,” says B Veerraju Chaudary, chief operating officer and chief technical officer of CNPV.
CNPV says its premium solar modules come with 8% higher efficiency compared to other UL certified suppliers, and its premium module series feature large area, high-efficiency mono crystalline silicon solar cells with anti-reflection coated glass and high conductivity interconnected materials.
The modules have power output in the range of 195-305W per module, with efficiency at 15-16%.
