Yingli Green Energy Hold. Co. Ltd (NYSE:YGE) shares rose 0.48% to $4.18.  On 11 July, the company announced that the JET PV Certification has now been expanded. It will now also include a large segment of its mono and multi-crystalline PV modules for Japan’s solar market. YGE had first obtained this Certification in 2011 August.

Excellence in PV modules

Japan Electrical and Environment Technology Laboratories or JET awards this certification. It is granted after the modules successfully complete a range of conformity tests that are in accordance with all requirements of certain international standards. In addition to this, factory inspections of the quality control systems and the manufacturing unit are necessitated.

Chairman and CEO of Yingli Green Energy, Mr. Liansheng Miao said that all the company’s conventional PV modules have now obtained this certification. This in itself goes to prove that the quality of its products is par excellence.  He added that the company has always focused on technology innovation, commitment to quality and excellent after-sales service and that these three factors will ensure its growth in Japan’s solar market.

The test of the best

In order to gain the Jet certification, YGE’s PV modules had to undergo safety and reliability tests that were in line with the JIS/IEC standards. JET’s PV Testing Group Manager, Takamitsu Inoue said that this was the third year in a row that Yingli’s modules had obtained this certification.

Yingli Green Energy Hold. Co. Ltd (NYSE:YGE) markets its products under the “Yingli Solar” brand name. It is the largest vertically-integrated PV manufacturer in the world. Its manufacturing covers the entire PV value chain, spanning from production of poly-silicon via ingot casting and wafering right upto the actual production and assembly of solar cells.
