SPI Modules achieve the PTC rating from CEC


Solar Power Inc. (SPI) announced that its 200 watt modules have been given one of the highest performance ratings awarded by the California Energy Commission (CEC). The Modules were tested by Intertek, an independent, Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) to determine real world performance characteristics.

SPI’s SP200 multi-crystalline module was tested under strict controls using Photovoltaic USA Test Conditions (PTC) at the Intertek laboratories in Lake Forest to achieve the PTC rating. The CEC currently lists 20 modules that have been tested using the PTC test conditions. SPI's SP200 module is ranked number three by the CEC, placing it in the upper echelon of top performing modules within its class on the market today.

 “The California solar market is growing, and having one of the top performing modules to offer Californians is significant. Our modules are being used across the state in a variety of applications that cover the spectrum of users from homeowners to commercial enterprises that include the STAPLESCenter and Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles,” said Jack Patton, CTO for Solar Power, Inc.
