Highland, N.Y.-based Prism Solar Technologies, a manufacturer of bifacial and holographic bifacial solar modules, says it has received several certifications from Intertek for its bifacial silicon solar modules.

The certifications include UL1703, ULC/ORD-C1703-1 and California Energy Commission (CEC) certifications. Intertek has granted Prism Solar "Authorization to Mark" its products with the ETL mark.

The modules are frameless, tempered glass-on-glass, which the company says makes them architecturally attractive and easy to install. The units use bifacial silicon solar cells that convert to energy the light that strikes both the front as well as the back of the module, leading to as much as 3 0% additional energy harvesting from the sun, according to Prism Solar.

The new certifications make the modules available to commercial customers in the U.S. and Canada, says CEO David Waserstein.
