Suntech modules excel in independent PID test

Suntech Power Holdings announced that its Wd poly, Wd mono and Ve poly series modules are highly resistant to potential-induced degradation, or PID, as confirmed in recent tests performed by the Association for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies, or VDE, one of the world's leading testing and certification institutes. According to the VDE test report, the tested Suntech modules "show no significant degradation at the end of the test sequence..." with all of the modules exhibiting negligible change in output power within the test lab measurement accuracy, and no changes in visual appearance.
