A new lab to test and certify solar panels and equipment just opened in Vancouver.

“This new facility will increase testing capacity for the rapidly growing photovoltaic market which recorded 110 per cent growth in 2008,” says Randall W. Luecke, president, CSA International, the testing and certification organization that opened the lab.

The lab will serve both North American and international clients in a market that, according to CSA, is growing. In 2008, world solar photovoltaic market installations recorded revenues of $37.1-billion and reached a record high of 5.95 gigawatts, with the United States as one of the top three countries recording growth in 2008.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, most solar electric systems last 30 years and pay for themselves in four to five years, after tax credits and rebates.
