Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
Eclipsall Energy Corp. ("Eclipsall"), today announced that its NRG Series PV modules have successfully passed the potential-induced degradation (PID) testing.
These performance tests assess PV module degradation during high voltage, high temperature and high humidity conditions. The PID testing conditions involved a voltage stress of 1,000 volts at a temperature of 60°C and a relative humidity of 85% for 96 hours - among the most stringent of industry testing standards.
The test results showed that Eclipsall PV modules experienced a power degradation of less than one percent, earning Eclipsall top marks.
Eclipsall prides itself on sourcing only superior quality raw materials to produce solar modules on their highly automated European equipment. Every module made at the Scarborough facility meets Eclipsall's rigorous quality standards to ensure maximum power yields and durability under all conditions.
Not all solar modules perform the same when exposed to severe weather conditions, either extreme heat and humidity or extreme cold. In Ontario, solar modules are often exposed to rapid changes in temperature, high winds, and snow loads which can cause significant stress to a solar module.
Les Lyster, President & CEO, commented on the PID test results "we are extremely proud of the test results which again demonstrate to the industry our relentless commitment to quality and performance".
