First curved solar module in the U.S. to receive UL certification announced


SRS Energy’s Sole Power Tile has obtained an Intertek ETL Listing for UL certification. Additionally, the tile has been recognized on the California Energy Commission’s (CEC) list of Eligible SB1 Guideline Compliant Photovoltaic Modules.

"This is an important accomplishment for SRS Energy and for the builders, architects, and contractors who are considering solar roofing for their projects," said JD Albert, CEO of SRS Energy. "UL 1703 certification provides our customers with independent verification that the product is well constructed and safe. This is the first BIPV solar roofing tile to visually integrate with profiled roofing and comply with national codes and standards, marking a significant milestone for the industry at large."

Established in 2002, ANSI/UL 1703 is the industry standard for ensuring the safety of photovoltaic modules. In 2007, the CEC Eligible Modules list was created. Customers applying for financial support from the state are required to purchase CEC approved modules.
