Other module products will be certified in the very near future, including 72-cell modules, black frame, and black back sheet models.

Boulder, Colorado/USA, Kolkata/India, November 11, 2014. Vikram Solar's Tier-1 and Tariff-Free modules are now certified by UL and approved by the California Energy Commission (CEC).

Vikram Solar, an advanced solar product and manufacturing company in Kolkata, India, received UL 1703 certification for its 60-cell polycrystalline solar panels in mid-September. This listing covers module wattage sizes from 240 to 270 Wp, with clear frames and white back sheets. Other module products will be certified in the very near future, including 72-cell modules, black frame, and black back sheet models.

The high performance PV modules were also added to the California Energy Commission list of Incentive Eligible Photovoltaic Modules in Compliance with SB1 Guidelines on November 3, 2014.

"We are very excited that our products have passed this important milestone and can now be installed by our growing list of EPC's, distributors, and solar integrators," Vikram Solar's founder and CEO Gyanesh Chaudhary said.

"This achievement once again underscores the reliability, safety and performance of Vikram Solar's entire module portfolio."

Featured Product



You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
