Underwriters Laboratories (UL) announced the expansion of its Photovoltaic (PV) Technology Center of Excellence; a PV testing and certification facility in Silicon Valley, CA, U.S., just four months after its grand opening.

UL's testing facility located in San Jose will undergo a 13,500 sq ft expansion to provide 35% more space to UL's current PV testing operations. It will also include a 31% year-over-year increase in project capacity since the laboratory's grand opening in July 2008. The expansion will house six more test chambers bringing the total to 20 and include an additional solar simulation room. New jobs will be created as a result from the doubling of required technical positions.
