Shanghai, China--March 30th, 2010 - Press Release -- Following the independent testing results of the German magazine Öko-Test (April 2010), China based Upsolar was rated "very good" among 15 international solar photovoltaic suppliers.
Only 4 companies obtained a "very good" rating, and Upsolar was the only one of 7 Chinese companies to achieve this. This is major achievement for Upsolar and reflects the quality of its products.
The testing, done by Photon laboratory on behalf of Öko-Test, focused on the actual power output when compared to the data sheet, tolerances, module efficiency, cell quality, as well as performing tests for micro cracks. Upsolar's product was rated "very good" (test performed on UP-M185M).
The cornerstone of Upsolar's success has been the rigorous quality-control management system we have developed and its employees' implementation of these online QC Management standards at all its partners' manufacturing platforms in collaboration with the third party QC management provider, Bureau Veritas (BV). BV also helps Upsolar to continually improve upon these processes while at the same time conducting audits of all Upsolar products prior to their shipment.
