ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sandia National Laboratories won a three-year renewal of a Department of Energy contract to manage the U.S. Regional Test Centers (RTCs), a network of five sites across the country where industry can assess the performance, reliability and economic viability of solar photovoltaic (PV) technologies. The program currently has more than 12 industry partners and 300 kilowatts of installed PV in different stages of development.

“These centers help demonstrate that products perform as predicted over time and in different climates, strengthening the bankability of emerging technologies and driving the market penetration of smarter, more efficient solar systems,” said Joshua Stein, the Sandia solar systems engineer who heads the RTC program.
