Photovoltaic (PV) modules often face extreme environments, including freezing temperatures, heavy snow, high winds and desert conditions. They often replace traditional building materials such as roof coverings and curtain walls. To help manufacturers address the risks related to PV modules, including flammability, resistance to ignition, thermal endurance, electrical properties and weather resistance, UL Solutions offers testing and certification for numerous materials and components. Our experts can also work with you to address the needs of your project or product and evaluate the properties of critical module components.

When applicable, we test and certify to: 

  • UL 61730-1, the Standard for Photovoltaic (PV) Module Safety Qualification - Part 1: Requirements for Construction.
  • UL 61730-2, Photovoltaic (PV) Module Safety Qualification - Part 2: Requirements for Testing.
  • Panels and performance testing (IEC/UL 61215 series).

We also offer the UL Component Recognition program. This program enhances supply chain management and simplifies the process of sourcing known components. Finally, customers can benefit from joint UL/IEC services and other international certifications. Together, our reliable testing services and the guidance from our experts allow you to:

  • Access global markets.
  • Gain up-to-date knowledge.
  • Leverage convenient testing locations.

Ultimately, this means you can enjoy faster access to emerging markets, streamlined testing, reduced costs and increased confidence. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you achieve your go-to-market goals.
