Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a specialist in product safety testing and certification, has opened North America's largest commercially focused photovoltaic testing and certification facility.

Located in San Jose, Calif., UL's 20,000 square-foot Photovoltaic Technology Center of Excellence increases testing capacity for the renewable energy industry and will enable manufacturers to get UL-listed PV products to market faster, UL says.

The lab's 14 test chambers and two solar simulators provide indoor and outdoor testing capabilities to evaluate photovoltaic modules and panels, as well as a wide variety of power systems accessory equipment. The facility will also offer a full portfolio of pre-certification services, including R&D and training.
