Suntech Power receives UL cert for photovoltaic modules

Wuxi, China, May 1, 2006 — Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd., a manufacturer of photovoltaic (PV) cells, announced that it has received Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) certification for a range of Suntech PV modules.

Dr. Zhengrong Shi, Suntech’s chairman and CEO, said the certification will help the company “increase our access to the U.S. market, one of the world’s biggest markets for solar power.”

The certificate received from UL, an independent, non-profit product-safety testing and certification organization in the U.S., certifies that product samples have been tested to nationally recognized U.S. Safety Standards and found to be free from reasonably foreseeable risk of fire, electric shock and related hazards.

Aside from the new UL certification, Suntech has already attained quality certificates including ISO 9001:2000, TuV and CE certificates and met international test standards including IEC61215: 1993.
