CEC - California Energy Commission Rating
CEC has a database of modules that are approved for use in residential and commercial projects. Any manufacturer selling in the California market must fulfill the CEC test requirements to have their modules listed in the database. CFV is an ILAC associated test laboratory through its accreditation for ISO17025 by A2LA, thus fulfilling the CEC requirements. In addition, modules must be certified to ANSI/UL 1703 by a Nationally Recognized Test Laboratory (NRTL), which CFV’s partner CSA is.
CFV will generate a test report formatted to meet the CEC requirements. This report can be readily submitted by the module manufacturer together with the certificate from CSA to the CEC to get the module listed in the California database.
