The ETN certificate is issued by a French approved control body (Alpes Contrôles, Sud-Est Prévention). These newly acquired certificates cover Sharp’s current range of residential solar modules. The mounting systems that Sharp is now compatible with include Renusol, K2, EPC Solaire and PMT.
ETN certificates are an essential requirement in the solar industry, serving as proof that a solar module is compatible with the specific mounting structure selected by the installer. This certification is not only mandatory, but also plays a role in ensuring that PV installations are eligible for insurance coverage.

French installers choose PV modules that are compatible with mounting systems to ensure reliability and watertightness, taking into account factors such as roof characteristics. This approach underlines the critical role of ETN certification, as it enables Sharp Energy Solutions Europe to align its products with installer preferences. (mfo)
