Toronto, ON (PRWEB) May 17, 2012 NRG 60 solar PV panels manufactured by Eclipsall in their Toronto facility have been ranked first overall in operational tests carried out this past winter by the Kortright Centre for Conservation’s Photovoltaic Performance Verification Program.
Owned and operated by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, the Kortright Centre for Conservation is Ontario’s premier environmental and renewable energy education and demonstration centre. The public facility is located on 325 hectares of woodlands, northwest of Toronto.
The recent testing period started January 1st of 2012 and is ongoing.
Solar panels from five manufacturers were measured for the following: Module Power (per second), independent flash testing under Standard Test Conditions (STC), on-site total global insolation and plane of the array insolation data and on-site ambient and module temperature data.
Ambient temperatures during the testing period ranged from a low of -5.5 Celsius (22.1 F) to a high of 25.6 Celsius (78.08 F). Eclipsall panels performed exceedingly well in these winter conditions.
“We are pleased that our NRG 60 panels performed so well in this independent measurement program”, said Eclipsall CEO Les Lyster. “Our customers and consumers in general are interested in comparative data that demonstrates product effectiveness and this test provides it. Our entire manufacturing team at Eclipsall takes great pride in the solar panel products we are producing in Toronto.”
Eclipsall Energy Group is a vertically integrated solar company. Already established as a manufacturer of high performance 60 and 72 cell PV modules, the company has since added an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) division, Eclipsall Solar, as well as a project development and financing division, Eclipsall Development.
