Soliant Energy Gets UL Listing

Monrovia-based Soliant Energy, which develops concentrating photovoltaic solar energy systems, said today that the firm's flagship product, the SE-500X, has received UL listing from Underwriters Laboratories. The firm said it was certified under the SU 8703 UL draft standard, a safety measurement being developed covering the safety parameters of concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) products. The firm said the listing is particularly important in counties such as Los Angeles County, where commercial fire codes are "extremely strict." Soliant is venture backed by Convexa Capital, GE Energy, Nth Power, Rincon Venture Partners, Rockport Capital Partners, and Trinity Ventures.
