Vikram awarded superior PTC ratings for 72-Cell Grand Series

14 April 2015
California Energy Commission (CEC) - The leading authority for module testing in the USA - Awards Vikram superior PTC ratings for its 72-call Grand Series.

Boulder, Colorado, April 10th 2015 - After extensive testing, the California Energy Commission (CEC) recently awarded superior PTC values to Vikram Solar’s Eldora Grand Series 72-cell polycrystalline PV modules. For example, the 310 Watt (STC) model produced a PTC value of 283.6 Watts. In terms of industry ranking, this makes the Eldora series one of the top Tier-1 performers available, a testament to the superior engineering and manufacturing now available from India’s industrial sector. The modules were simultaneously certified to be UL 1703 compliant at 1000 VDC, with a “Type 1” fire safety class.

Ivan Saha, President & CTO at Vikram Solar says: “This latest certification demonstrates how Vikram Solar’s customers benefit from our investment in R&D and production technology. PVUSA field test conditions are far more realistic than controlled laboratories. The excellent PTC rating proves that PV systems engineered with Vikram modules are likely to deliver more energy output.”

As part of its launch campaign in North America, Vikram is a proud sponsor of the Solar Summit U.S. taking place in Phoenix on April 14-16. Last year, Ken Oatman also joined the Vikram team as Head of Business Development for the Americas. He recently elaborated on Vikram’s plans for the future, “Along with India, the UK and South Africa, the North American market forms a key focus area for Vikram’s global activities. This is why we will continue to strive to be close to our customers, and to optimize the efficiency and quality of our products.”
