ReneSola Ltd. says its 60- and 72-cell polysilicon and monosilicon solar modules exceeded the company's power output guidelines when assessed by a recent third-party flash test.

In December, Spire Corp. invited ReneSola to participate in a demonstration of the Spire Spi-Sun Simulator 5600SLP flash tester, which exposes the modules to a single long-pulse flash of filtered xenon light to approximate solar irradiation.

Four ReneSola modules were tested, all of which produced a maximum power output greater than that indicated on the company's datasheets, by as much as 8 W.

The flash tester used in the demonstration was calibrated with a National Renewable Energy Laboratory-tested and certified module immediately before the testing of ReneSola's modules.
