The Principal Solar Institute Module Ratings

The Principal Solar Institute’s scientifically designed and certified combination of tests and performance standards provide an unbiased, comprehensive rating system – the PSI PV module rating. Seven essential characteristics related to initial and long-term PV module performance are combined to create the PSI Rating:

  • Actual Tested Maximum Power vs. Advertised
  • Temperature Coefficient at Maximum Power
  • Power at Low Irradiance to Power at High Irradiance Ratio
  • Normal Operating Cell Temperature (NOCT)
  • Total Area Efficiency
  • Negative Power Tolerance
  • Annual Power Reduction

These ratings allow you to make comparisons when analyzing PV modules and help you select the optimal PV module.
