Solar PV modules manufactured by Phono Solar have been officially certified and added to the UL 2703 listing of solar mounting system specialist PanelClaw, the first US company to have systems and components listed under UL 2703, a new UL subject specifically focused on evaluating solar PV mounting systems. UL listing enables installers to reduce grounding costs with Phono Solar modules.
A key component of UL 2703 is the UL recognition of PanelClaw’s mounting systems and module attachment components (Claws) as approved electric bonding and grounding devices. Installers can reduce grounding costs with PanelClaw mounting solutions, by increasing install speed, lowering labour costs, and eliminating the vast majority of copper wire and ground lugs otherwise needed to establish equipment ground connections in a PV system. And PanelClaw’s UL listing also enables installers to easily show compliance with an array of grounding requirements.
“Pairing Phono Solar’s PV modules with PanelClaw’s mounting systems eliminates additional copper wire for the purposes of equipment grounding, which reduces installation time and system cost.” said Tony Guerrero, Marketing Director of Phono Solar North America. “PanelClaw’s certified solution supports our LCOE (Levelised Cost of Energy) initiatives for our customers.”
