PV flash testing starts at PVEL

PV Evolution Labs (PVEL), North American independent solar panel test lab, launched their fast-turn-around 3rd party flash testing service. PVEL’s class AAA flash tester has ISO 17025 calibration traceability for crystalline silicon, CdTe, and other PV technologies.

April 26, 2011 — PV Evolution Labs (PVEL), North American independent solar panel test lab, launched their fast-turn-around 3rd party flash testing service.

Located in Berkeley, CA, PVEL is equipped with state-of-the-art test systems designed for evaluating photovoltaic (PV) module performance. PVEL’s class AAA flash tester has ISO 17025 calibration traceability for crystalline silicon (cSi), cadmium telluride (CdTe), and other PV technologies, and is rigorously maintained for accuracy.

Validating a solar panel’s actual output ensures developers are installing only products that meet their performance expectations. Lot acceptance testing has become a common practice to avoid underperformance upon system commissioning.

With more than 500 solar panel manufacturers globally, selecting a panel supplier is a daunting task for any project developer. PVEL now reduces developer risk by providing this 3rd party assessment without adding delays to tight project development schedules.

“We are thrilled to facilitate the operations of project developers by providing this critical data in a repeatable and efficient way”, said Jenya Meydbray, PVEL’s CEO.

PVEL also provides support for warranty claims, bankability assessment, and other reliability and performance testing needs of project developers, financial institutions, and module manufacturers. PV Evolution Labs helps test solar panel performance and aging behavior. Learn more at http://www.pvel.com
