California, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Solaria Corporation announced that it has received the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 61215 certificate from TÜV SÜD for its CMT-190W, -200W and -210W solar modules. This certificate confirms that Solaria’s Philippines-based manufacturing facility and line of cell multiplication technology (CMT) modules meet the guidelines set forth by the IEC for performance and quality assurance.
“Product quality is core to our brand and at the heart of our customer and partners’ business interests. To that end, before entering into IEC testing, we tested our modules to twice the IEC specifications, recognizing our technology is distinguished by its industry-leading performance and long-term reliability,” said Suvi Sharma, Solaria’s CEO. “Certification is the gateway to the solar marketplace and differentiates Solaria as one of a handful of fundamentally new technologies to meet the stringent quality and reliability requirements of the IEC.”
Solar products targeting the European market must possess IEC 61215 certification, confirmation that all products and manufacturing processes pass a broad range of environmental and mechanical stress tests that ensure product performance for over a minimum 25-year product lifetime. On the heels of this milestone, Solaria is on track to meet the safety standards set forth by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a requisite for entrance into the U.S. market.
