Upsolar PV modules certified for new UK feed-in-tariffBy Upsolar, PRNE
Tuesday, June 29, 2010
PARIS, June 30, 2010 - The British Board of Agrément (BBA) has granted the MCS
certificate for the complete Upsolar PV module range after a detailed
certification process. The certificate is mandatory in order to be eligible
for Clean Energy Cash Back Incentives (Feed-In-Tariffs). It demonstrates the
quality and reliability of approved products by satisfying rigorous quality
control standards. After the "very good" rating of the leading German
Öko-Test magazine the MCS certificate is now the second independent approval
for Upsolar's module quality in the last few weeks.
BBA performed the certification process over a period of six
months including a full due diligence assessment of the manufacturing
processes, materials, procedures and staff training. In addition the existing
certifications held by Upsolar under ISO 9001, IEC 61215 / 61730 and the IEC
testing laboratory accreditation were examined. The MCS process also included
new Upsolar products such as the 190W module UP-M190M with a high efficiency
of 14.88% that is particularly suitable for roof-top systems.
"Achieving the MCS certification demonstrates the approved
product quality of our modules and the high manufacturing standards. Through
the combination of the product features and the attractive price Upsolar
modules are suitable not only for smaller rooftop installations. Diverse
customers across Europe use them for large scale power plants because they
can rely on their bankability with major financial partners" says Iain
Garner, European Sales Manager of Upsolar.
