Solar testing lab opens in San Jose

SAN JOSE

It is a 20,000 square-foot testing lab, designed to reduce a huge backlog in the testing of solar panels and photovoltaic cells.

The lab is the largest facility of its kind in the country and is run by Underwriters Laboratories, the people who certify the safety of things such as appliances and extension cords.

They hope to get solar products on the market more quickly.
