UL is offering test services to Solar PV operators in managing the risks associated with building and operating Solar PV plants. The services cover from design stage to the commercial operation date (COD) and throughout the in-service lifetime of a PV plant, factors such as performance, energy yields and verification are critical.
"This is a natural extension of our services - UL has been a trusted independent third-party who has worked with stakeholders of the PV value chain for years," said Evelyn Butler, Business Development Director of UL's Energy and Industrial Systems business. "UL is now offering a one stop solution to all parties of a PV power plant - no matter where in the world the plant or customer is."
UL's suite of services can be specifically tailored to meet the needs of the owner, operator or other stakeholder. Services range from:
Yield assessment and due diligence
Hardware certification and performance
"Although UL has typically been thought to be involved further upstream in the PV value chain, we have been involved end to end through our installer trainer, field evaluation services, certification services and working with AHJs (authorities having jurisdiction) and regulators. We offer a total solution for PV power plants," Butler stated.
