JAPAN: ReneSola Ltd announced its 125-square monocrystalline module has been listed by the Japan Photovoltaic Expansion Center (JPEC) as qualified for the Japan market.
JPEC-listed products are eligible to receive installation subsidies from the Japanese government, meet Japan's high-quality standards and safety requirements and are fully compatible with the country's electric grid.
In order to obtain JPEC listing, ReneSola partnered with local suppliers to provide a PV home kit solution that includes 125-square and 156-square monocrystalline modules with an inverter, monitor and racking system to the Japan market. JPEC listing is expected for additional ReneSola products, including the company's 156-square monocrystalline module and 250 W poly module, in the near future.
Xianshou Li, ReneSola's CEO, said: "JPEC listing is considered the biggest hurdle for a foreign company entering Japan's residential solar market. Now that we are listed, we can invest more heavily in the Japan market and capitalize on the country's energy buy-back program, which focuses heavily on solar power. By partnering with local suppliers, we are confident that we can deliver high-efficiency products and localized household renewable energy solutions to the Japan market."
