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.
