Suniva, Inc., a U.S. manufacturer of high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells and modules, formally announced their expansion into new markets, which include Mexico and Latin America

Following the commencement of several ground mounted projects containing over 12 MW of Suniva’s modules in Puerto Rico, Suniva solar modules will soon be deployed in Mexico in substantial roof-top arrays. The company’s high-quality, high-efficiency modules featuring high U.S. content have proven to be ideal for the commercial market, resulting in a strategic partnership with a leading construction company in Mexico. 

“Mexico’s solar industry has grown significantly over the last few years, and we are pleased to partner with one of the most respected construction companies in the country. The increasing solar opportunities in this region are numerous, and we are very pleased to participate with our partners in this neighboring market by offering the highest quality products made using low cost manufacturing methods, making solar sensible for all parties involved” said Matt Card, vice president of sales, Americas, for Suniva. 

With multi-megawatt projects underway in Puerto Rico and Mexico, Suniva has begun its entry into South America, with an initial launch in Brazil. To match the benchmark high-quality module standards in Brazil, Suniva has started its Inmetro (Brazil’s National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology) certification process, a required prerequisite to sell modules within Brazil. This additional quality certification will add to Suniva’s existing value-add certification list including UL 1703, IEC 61215, IEC 61730, Puerto Rico, KEMCO, MCS, IECEE CB, Salt Spray and Fraunhofer certified Extended Reliability tests. Suniva’s internal materials testing surpasses the previously mentioned standards and its Optimus® line is certified “PID free” by PV Evolution labs (PVEL).
