Upsolar PV modules certified for new UK feed-in-tariff


After the “very good” rating of the leading German Öko-Test magazine the MCS certificate is now the second independent approval for Upsolar’s module quality in the last few weeks.

BBA performed the certification process over a period of six months including a full due diligence assessment of the manufacturing processes, materials, procedures and staff training. In addition, the existing certifications held by Upsolar under ISO 9001, IEC 61215 / 61730 and the IEC testing laboratory accreditation were examined. The MCS process also included new Upsolar products such as the 190W module UP-M190M.

“Achieving the MCS certification demonstrates the approved product quality of our modules and the high manufacturing standards. Through the combination of the product features and the attractive price Upsolar modules are suitable not only for smaller rooftop installations. Diverse customers across Europe use them for large scale power plants because they can rely on their bankability with major financial partners,” says Iain Garner, European sales manager for Upsolar.
