Chinese company Trina Solar Ltd (NYSE:TSL) today said Tuesday its TSM-PE05A and TS-PE14A polycrystalline modules have received UL1500V certification from Underwriters Laboratories.
The UL1500V award of the global independent safety science company certifies that the modules are allowed to be used in PV systems with a maximum system voltage of 1500V, higher than the existing 1000V of most modules on the market.
The higher system voltage modules allow our customers to design their PV systems with longer string length. It significantly reduces the number of component in the balance of the system (BOS), and reduces the cost per unit of power (US$/W) of BOS, Trina Solar noted.
