Austin, Texas – November 15, 2011 — HelioVolt announces that the company's HVC-170X modules have received ANSI/UL-1703, IEC-61646, and IEC-61730 certifications, as tested and certified by Intertek-ETL. HelioVolt's high efficiency panels offer outstanding energy yield with unprecedented reliability and performance. These monolithically integrated panels are manufactured in Austin, TX utilizing the company's proprietary CIGS (Copper Indium Gallium Selenide) technology platform.

HelioVolt's high standards for module performance and reliability have been validated extensively across internal and third party testing sites.
