Solar panels certified by the German-based solar-testing company TUV Rheinland will qualify for Japan’s residential solar installation subsidy program.
The TUV Rheinland certificates have been approved by the Japan Photovoltaic Expansion Center (J-PEC), an arm of the Japanese Photovoltaic Energy Association (JPEA).
To meet its Kyoto protocol targets, the Japanese government is promoting mass deployment of solar energy in homes throughout Japan. The JPEA, with the support of the Economy, Trade and Industry Ministry, is behind the subsidy program.
J-PEC envisions a solar panel on every rooftop in Japan and seeks to promote solar energy installations throughout the country as an alternative clean energy source. TUV Rheinland Japan provides the full scope of photovoltaic testing services for all solar manufacturers from its Yokohama testing laboratories. The TUV Rheinland Group has a worldwide network, including photovoltaic labs in Shanghai, Germany and the United States.
