Among the major milestones announced are CEC listings, UL 1703 Certifications for its Polycrystalline solar modules and TUV Certification for both its BIPV and Polycrystalline products. Solar panels will be highlighted in booth #1388 at Solar Power International 2009, to be held in Anaheim, CA, October 27 - 29, 2009.

"We are both proud and pleased by the innovations that RITEK's myEco products have achieved," stated Harvey Liu, President of Advanced Media, Inc (RITEK USA). "The commercial market asked for advanced solar panels matched with turn-key solutions for sourcing, system design and installation. RITEK responded to this requirement by building a network of installers and partners nationwide to meet the specific requirements of its customers."

Polycrystalline PV Modules

RITEK's Polycrystalline boasts new TUV, CEC listed and UL 1703. The centerpiece products in this line are the PM 220 (220 Watts), PM 200 (200 Watts) and PM 175 (175 Watts) panels, known for reliability, durability, excellent energy conversion ratios and customizable back sheet colors. Targeted at off-grid rural solar plants, commercial grid-tied roof systems as well as warehouses and automated systems this line offers distributors, installers and contractors a wide array of proven options. RITEK provides turn-key solutions from sourcing to system design and installation.

BIPV Polycrystalline Modules

The BIPV line is like a dual-functioning window that not only converts energy to electricity but also allows in natural light. The PM 220G boasts an energy module efficiency rate of 11.73% and generates 220 Watts. This elegant solution allows for easy building integration without compromising architectural design. The clear glass is highly durable allowing in natural light and is available in customizable thicknesses making it the perfect choice for windows, skylights, curtain walls and sky rooms. This versatile line expands the realm of LEED building integration, offering architects and commercial installers an unprecedented range of capabilities.

CIGS Thin Film PV Modules

CIGS ability to absorb and convert broad spectrums of light (even in low light situations) makes this line ideal for shady or cloudy environments and projects where material conversion consistence and performance cost is important. The myEco CM72 module generates 72 watts and currently has an efficiency rating of 10%. The CM72 offers longer power generation life and is a stable material with no dramatic conversion drop after long periods of sun exposure. Aimed at solar plants as well as roof and ground mounted systems, the CM72 makes solar power possible even in low light environments.
