ReneSola Ltd ("ReneSola" or the "Company") (NYSE: SOL), a leading global manufacturer of solar modules and solar wafers, has announced it has formally obtained certification from the Standards Institution of Israel ("SII") for the Company's solar modules, including its Virtus series, monocrystalline series and multicrystalline series of solar modules.
SII certification is required by the Israeli government before solar modules may be used for on-grid installation in Israel and ensures that ReneSola's solar modules meet Israel's safety requirements.
Mr. Xianshou Li, ReneSola's chief executive officer, said, "SII certification is the first step in establishing ReneSola's market presence in Israel, which is a key solar market in the Middle East. We believe our Virtus modules are well suited for installation in Israel's climate because the quasi-mono modules provide high efficiency with very low temperature sensitivity. With this certification, we will begin to invest more heavily in the Israeli market to place our high-quality solar modules on the grid and capitalize on the country's fast-growing solar market."
