PV module and inverter testing

For solar module and inverter manufacturers, gaining access to potential buyers can be a major challenge. Third-party qualification and / or bankability studies can make it easier. Investors often look at this information before making any decisions about a project. It also helps them select potential vendors and manage equipment quality.

Photovoltaic (PV) equipment is expected to last for many decades. Typically, investors look at historical performance when assessing such long-term assets. But this long-term field data doesn’t exist in the solar industry; instead, we have to rely on lab data. Our standardized PV module and inverter testing process allows investors to make like-to-like comparisons, making it easier for them to evaluate your equipment.

Increase your client relationships
In this way, we help you find a path into large, institutionally-funded projects. Our network of downstream partners includes all the large residential and utility-scale buyers, and all major banks. By making use of our services and performing well in testing, you can enhance your relationships with these clients.

You can use our third-party performance and reliability reports to assure investors of product quality and due diligence. Our in-depth Q&A sessions help you extract the value that you’re looking for from these reports. We can also construct tailored reports for your needs.
