recently added new equipment to its 20,000-square-foot testing facility

in San Jose, bringing the number of test chambers to 20. The company

says that additional solar simulation equipment (for indoor testing) is

being installed and will be operational in July.

The San Jose

lab is also undergoing a 13,500-square-foot expansion, which will

provide 35% more space to current PV testing operations by July and

result in project capacity growing an additional 30% year-over-year

compared with July 2008, according to UL.

UL says it is the only

National Certification Body for PV product testing in North America

that is able to test and certify products in accordance with both UL

Standards and International Standards (IEC).
