BAODING, China, Nov. 17 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited (YGE; “Yingli Green Energy” or the “Company”), one of the world’s leading vertically integrated photovoltaic (“PV”) product manufacturers, today announced that its “Yingli Solar” brand modules have attained the “Power Controlled” certification from TUV Rheinland Group (“TUV Rheinland”), a leading global service provider in the testing of photovoltaic modules and components, at its 2009 Annual Global Customer Conference which kicked off today in Baoding. Present at the conference were more than 300 customers, business partners, PV association representatives and selected journalists.

“Power Controlled” certification provides independent verification and assurance that the real rated power of Yingli Solar brand modules lies within the specified tolerance as stated in the Company’s datasheets. The certification reduces risk and uncertainty in the real power installed in PV systems and therefore further reduces financial return risk for investors. The Company believes the attainment of this certification further reinforces the bankability of its “Yingli Solar” brand modules.

“We are pleased to be among the first companies to receive ‘Power Controlled’ certification,” Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and CEO of Yingli Green Energy, commented. “At Yingli Green Energy we are focused on continuously improving our product quality, and we strive to underpin our innovations with certifications from leading independent third parties. With the ‘Power Controlled’ certification we can offer our customers and investors an additional level of assurance that our modules deliver the power that we promise, and by reducing the uncertainty in PV system performance we are helping lay the foundation for grid-parity PV solutions in the future.”

Willi Vaassen, TUV Rheinland Business Field Manager of Renewable Energy, commented, “We are pleased that Yingli Green Energy is one of the first recipients of the ‘Power Controlled’ certification, which we have designed to drive the development of a reliable power rating system for PV modules. As the leading global service provider in the testing of photovoltaic modules and components, we are committed to boosting market access and reducing investment risk for PV systems around the world through rolling this program out to leading global PV-module manufacturers.”

TUV Rheinland “Power Controlled” certification includes periodic third-party assessment of Yingli Green Energy’s pulsed solar simulators, measurement procedures, maintenance and calibration intervals and power output verification testing of PV modules through random sampling and evaluation of flash-test data from the production line. The measurement procedures and calibration are traceable to the highest standards of World PV Scale (WPVS).
