Eclipsall’s NRG60 PV solar modules are earning high performance scores across the board in operational tests carried out this past winter by the Kortright Centre for Conservation’s Photovoltaic Performance Verification Program.
Solar modules from five different Ontario manufacturers were measured for Module Power (per second), independent flash testing under Standard Test Conditions (STC), on-site total global insolation and plane of the array insolation data and on-site ambient and module temperature data. During the Kortright tests, which are continuing for the rest of 2012, Eclipsall’s 60 cell modules outperformed all other manufacturers when comparing actual vs. “nameplate” power classes.
While data collected reflects only the first three months of testing, Eclipsall modules are performing at a “best in class” level in all categories and the company is confident that these trends will continue.
Testing was conducted during the months of January, February and March 2012 in Ontario and the Eclipsall modules performed exceedingly well in these winter conditions in temperatures ranging from a low of -16 C to an unusual high of 28 C. In addition to superior performance, Eclipsall modules have 4 mm glass and a stronger frame providing greater strength and durability for the climate conditions found in Ontario.
“We are pleased that our NRG 60 modules performed so well in this independent measurement program”, said Eclipsall CEO Les Lyster. “Our customers and consumers in general are interested in comparative data that demonstrates product effectiveness and this test provides it. Our entire manufacturing team at Eclipsall takes great pride in the solar module products we are producing in Toronto.”
Owned and operated by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, the Kortright Centre for Conservation is Ontario’s environmental and renewable energy education and demonstration center. The public facility is located northwest of Toronto.
