Berkeley, CA –
PV Evolution Labs (PVEL), North America’s premier independent solar panel test lab, today announced the launch of their fast-turn-around 3rd party flash testing service.
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 delay’s to tight project development schedules. 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.
Located in Berkeley, CA, PVEL is equipped with state-of-the-art test systems designed for evaluating PV module performance. PVEL’s class AAA flash tester is meticulously maintained and has ISO 17025 calibration traceability for crystalline silicon, CdTe, and other PV technologies.
“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.
Headquartered in Berkeley, CA, PV Evolution Labs (“http://www.pvel.com”) was founded on the principle that understanding solar panel performance and aging behavior through careful and rigorous testing is a fundamental aspect of safety, cost reduction, and reliability. For the growing solar R&D, certification, and financial services sectors, PVEL’s secure, expert testing and validation services help companies increase PV quality while reducing time to market.
