Risen Energy Solar PV Modules Receive JET Certification for Use in Japan

The JET PVm certification mark comes in two distinct forms; the Performance Certification mark, and the Performance + Safety Certification mark.

NINGHAI, China, April 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Risen Energy Co., Ltd, a leading global Tier 1 manufacturer of high-performance solar photovoltaic products and provider of total business solutions for power generation, today confirmed their 72, 60 and 54 cell solar PV modules, for residential, commercial and utility scale projects, have passed the Japan Electrical Safety & Environmental Technology Laboratories (JET) pre-requisite testing for supply of PV modules into the Japanese market. The approved products cover power ranges from 215Wp to 345Wp.


The JET PVm certification mark comes in two distinct forms; the Performance Certification mark, and the Performance + Safety Certification mark. JET has a very rigorous testing regime, in part due to their understanding that Japanese consumers are more interested in quality and safety than price, and in part to ensure that the approved products last for more than 25 years, and that the suppliers will be available to provide service during the life of the product. The testing process comprises the qualification and verification of the products' design, construction, reliability and performance as well as auditing the manufacturer's facilities to ensure its compliance.

"The JET certification process is highly stringent," clarified Mr Bypina Veerraju Chaudary, Risen's CSMO. "PV module components must meet not only IEC61215 & IEC61730 standards, but also UL1730, UL746C and UL94 standards. The testing and review processes took numerous months to attain. Our commitment to the Japanese market, in all of its forms, is now further underscored with the JET mark approval. Our historic successes within the Japanese arena have been achieved with individual enthusiastic customers carrying out similar evaluations and establishing the depth of our quality, performance, longevity and service. The JET mark approval further allows a wider range of knowledgeable customers to generate a greater profit from use of Risen's high-performance solar PV modules."

Of course, JET certification alone is not sufficient to penetrate the Japanese market, albeit a worthy addition to the portfolio of justifications. The existing Risen service and support infrastructure within the region allow our experienced techno-commercial team to fully understand and support the customers' needs to convert sunlight into maximum revenue. With numerous specific tangible validations, and the addition of the JET mark, Japanese and International customers can now focus on significant profit generation improvements with the full comfort that the JET laboratory has approved Risen with flying colours.
