Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. has received Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) certification for a wide range of Suntech PV modules. The UL certified Suntech PV modules consist of 16 models including the STP150-24/Ab-1 through to STP185-24/Ab-1, and the STP150S-24/Ab-1 through to STP185S-24/Ab-1. Aside from the new UL certification, Suntech has already attained quality certificates including ISO 9001:2000, TuV and CE certificates and met international test standards including IEC61215: 1993.

"The UL certification recognizes that Suntech's solar energy products are top quality, and is a milestone in our international sales development that will help us increase our access to the U.S. market, one of the world's biggest markets for solar power," said Dr. Zhengrong Shi, Suntech's chairman and CEO.

"Our high-quality PV products have been extremely well received in other international markets including Germany, Spain, Italy and Austria, and we are looking forward to expanding our sales into the U.S.," continued Dr. Shi. "With rising oil prices and the recently approved California Solar Initiative, we believe our products will be well received in the rapidly growing U.S. solar energy market as well."
