February 18, 2013: REC announces an enhanced certification for potential-induced degradation (PID) resistance.

The PID-resistance test, certified by the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS), subjected the solar panels to some of the harshest PID-test conditions in the industry:

- Negative voltage of 1,000 Volts
- Ambient temperature of 60°C
- Relative humidity of 85 percent
- Test period of 96 hours

The REC Peak Energy solar panels performed very well in the test, showing less than two percent power degradation and demonstrating the high quality and reliability of REC solar panels. Thanks to optimization of design, materials selection and in-house manufacturing processes, REC has succeeded in further improving its solar panels' durability and reliability for the harshest environments.

REC's solar panels are already certified to the industry-accepted TÜV Rheinland standards, in which a negative voltage of 1,000 Volts is applied to the panels at 25°C for a period of 168 hours.

"We are very proud to be one of only a few manufacturers passing the PID test at this protocol and doing so with such excellent results," commented Luc Graré, Senior Vice President Solar Sales and Marketing, REC. "Consistent high yield, quality, and durability are of utmost importance in today's market and our outstanding performance in this demanding test clearly demonstrates that REC solar panels are among the best in the industry."
