Suniva Inc., a manufacturer of monocrystalline silicon solar cells and modules, says it is expanding its module certifications by adding UL 1703 1,000 V listing for its high-power OPTimus line of modules.
These modules feature 60-cell models with power output of up to 270 W and 72-cell modules with power output up to 315 W. The cells utilized in these modules are made at Suniva's Norcross, Ga., plant and headquarters.
With this enhancement, North American projects can now use Suniva modules connected in series strings at up to 1,000 volts DC, the company says. Suniva is also increasing its capacity for Buy American Act compliant module assembly at its plant. The site will soon ramp to 24/7 operations.
