LabTest Certification Promotes Green Energy with New Solar Testing Accreditation

This alliance will provide the solar energy industry with a reliable local testing facility, helping manufacturers and distributors to cut costs by facilitating fast SRCC certification and efficient entry into the dynamic global marketplace.

SRCC implements certification programs and national rating standards for solar energy equipment based on safety, design, and performance criteria. Currently, a growing number of states, organizations and utility companies require SRCC certified products in their solar programs, providing a rational basis for tax credit and rebate qualifying regulation as well as a means for setting codes and standards.
