Gives Amerisolar access to the Brazilian market
We continue to receive international awards for the high quality standards of Amerisolar’s solar panels.
We in fact completed the certification process for photovoltaic modules at the laboratories of the National Institute of Metrology of Brazil (INMETRO) at the beginning of 2019.
What is the INMETRO certification?
The INMETRO certification is required for the import and marketing of all electrical and electronic equipment in Brazil, including solar panels.
The series of solar panels covered by the certifications are some of the most important among those produced at Amerisolar’s plants:

A Brief Overview of the INMETRO Organisation
The National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology INMETRO was founded in December 1973 with the aim of supporting Brazilian companies and raising the quality of goods and services provided to end users.
Its main objective is to improve the lives of citizens by increasing the competitiveness of enterprises through metrology and quality control standards.
A Booming Market for Solar Energy
As of 2018, Brazil had installed 1 GW of solar power systems, power that could meet the needs of over 500,000 homes and about 2 million citizens. A historic goal, but one still far below the potential of a country of that size, population and amount of solar radiation; which all point to much greater numbers.
The statements made by the president of Absolar (Brazilian Association of Solar Energy) Rodrigo Sauaia on the energy policies of Brazil leaves no doubt about the intentions of the country:
“We are able to position ourselves among the main countries in the world in this market, just as we are already able to position ourselves in hydroelectric, biomass and wind energy”
The Brazilian market is therefore of great interest to Amerisolar, which now, thanks to INMETRO certifications, can market its solar panels in Brazil and make its own contribution to the sustainable development of the country.
