Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has sent a warning to authorities having jurisdiction, distributors, installers and users stating that certain PV modules have been labeled with a counterfeit UL Mark. The label claims that the modules have been tested to UL1703.
The affected modules are from Advanced Solar Photonics (also known as BlueChip Energy) – models AP-240PK, AP-245MK and ASP-390M. The modules have not been evaluated by UL to meet its standards, and it is unknown if the products comply with UL's safety requirements for the U.S. and Canada, UL says.Â
According to UL, the modules are known to be sold by SunWorks Solar and may be sold by other distributors.
