Photovoltaic Product Testing

Photovoltaic Product Testing

With the growing demand for alternative energy sources, solar energy is evolving quickly. Up to date, more and more solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are being installed in both residential and commercial situations throughout the world, and are expected to safely and reliably produce electrical energy in the future operation. However, many systems are not satisfactorily evaluated prior to being placed into service, and many have had little, if any, scheduled maintenance or testing over their lifetime. Unfortunately, this often leads to unsafe and underperforming systems with reduced value to their owners. Thus, there will be an increased need for photovoltaic testing services to confirm new products meet consumer demands for safety and performance, which also require an increase of regulatory demands.

As a global leading company committed to solar energy and photovoltaic systems, Alfa Chemistry possesses comprehensive capabilities to offer customers with reliable services and accurate results. Our mission is to be your closely partner for one-stop photovoltaic testing.
