Abound Solar, a leader in the field of Cadmium Telluride thin-film PV solar modules, has declared that it has achieved UK Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) for the company’s AB1 PV modules.
This certification would allow PV systems that utilize Abound Solar modules to become eligible for UK solar feed-in-tariffs. The certification was granted to Abound Solar after a strenuous evaluation was carried out on the materials and the production processes and the manufacturing operations were run through a gamut of quality controls. The Abound Solar PV modules have already been certified by other accredited certifying bodes such as TÜV (IEC 61646, IEC 61730, IEC 61215); the California Energy Commission (CEC) and the Underwriters Laboratories 1703.
According to Julian Hawkings, the Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales in Abound Solar, there was a considerable growth in the UK with respect to the total installed solar power capacity. He also mentioned that the company was thrilled to enlarge their solar market and form and enhance relationships with both existing and new project developers and system integrators in the area.
Abound Solar created by the Colorado State University’s experience of 15 years in the solar field along with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory is currently generating solar modules that decrease the expenses involved in producing solar electricity utilizing a strong, continuous and large-scale manufacturing process.
