Spire Expands Its UL PV Module Master Listing Offering To Include A New Low Cost And UL Approved Bill Of Materials

Spire Corporation ("Spire") (Nasdaq: SPIR), a global solar company providing capital equipment and turn-key manufacturing lines to produce photovoltaic ("PV") modules and providing engineering, procurement and construction ("EPC") integration services for solar systems announced today that its latest PV module design and Bill of Materials (BOM) have achieved the Master UL Listing by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL). Spire worked closely with FLEXcon for back sheet material, and Arkema for encapsulation materials to design this latest approved module. This module joins Spire’s previous listings, and allows Spire customers more selection in choosing a module design and BOM that is pre-approved by UL.

UL is a global independent organization that conducts safety testing and certification of products. PV system integrators require UL 1703 certified PV modules due to the high safety and quality standards of their installed PV systems. UL has tested and evaluated Spire’s PV module design and determined that it meets the UL 1703 standards for safety and performance.

In addition to the safety and performance qualification, Spire’s newest module design with UL Master Listing incorporates several customer benefits, including:

  • Faster time to achieve UL certification,
  • Fraction of the total cost to submit a module for design-type qualification,
  • Minimal risk of failing UL testing,
  • Module design and BOM can be retroactive for previous customers of Spire, and
  • Made with FLEXcon backsheet which utilizes the proven protection of Kynar® film to enhance durability.

“With the Master UL Listing certification providing confirmation of Spire's quality and safety, customers can be completely confident deploying our module design, which reinforces Spire’s dedication to quality, innovation, and commitment to provide our customers the best available module designs and materials, and materials supply chain solutions,” said Roger G. Little, Chairman and CEO of Spire Corporation. “Our customers can receive the UL mark within three weeks from startup as opposed to a typical four months lead time from competitors without the UL Listing. Also, startup costs to enter the U.S. market are significantly lower for our customers,” concluded Mr. Little.
