Solyndra receives microgeneration product certification in the UK

Solyndra Inc of Fremont, CA, USA, which manufactures copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) photovoltaic (PV) systems consisting of panels and mounting hardware for commercial rooftops, has received microgeneration product certification from BRE Global Limited in the UK.

BRE Global Limited (incorporating LPCB & BREEAM) is an independent, third party approvals body offering certification of fire, security and sustainability products and services to an international market.

“Meeting these strict European standards further validates our commitment to product quality and to meeting the needs of our customers for reliable, rooftop solar electricity,” said Chris Gronet, Solyndra’s CEO. “The UK feed-in tariff has heightened interest in commercial rooftop solar power throughout the region and this certification further assures our customers of Solyndra’s suitability for the UK environment.”

Solyndra’s products offer light-weight and strong wind performance with other benefits that make them ideal for rooftop installations in the UK, says the firm.
