Stion, a manufacturer of thin-film solar modules, says it has received both Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) certifications to ship modules produced at its Hattiesburg, Miss., factory.

Stion modules with nominal power of up to 140 W are now available, with commercial shipments from the factory commencing later this month. The first phase of the 500 MW factory has 100 MW of annual production capacity.

The modules are designed for use in all major market segments: residential, commercial, government/municipal and utility, Stion says. They feature a convenient form factor (65 cm x 165 cm) that enables streamlined installation, the company adds.

Stion plans to continue expansion of both its Hattiesburg factory and its San Jose, Calif., headquarters. As part of its $130 million funding round in December 2011, Stion is establishing a subsidiary in Korea (Stion Korea) with strategic partner AVACO to build a factory that will help serve the Asian and European markets.
