Lighting Global and the regional programs (Lighting Africa, Lighting Asia and Lighting Pacific) are now extending support to “plug-and-play” direct current (DC) solar home system kits.
As of December 2015, they are now accepting new products for testing. Though they are actively working to expand testing capacity, for the first several months, they will only be able to test a limited number of products.
To apply for testing, please complete this application form. Products will be accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis, with priority given to those products that can be sampled and shipped so that they arrive at one of the two test labs in January. Once our available testing capacity has been allocated, products will be placed in a queue, and companies will be notified when a testing opportunity is available. Products that cannot be sampled and shipped on the specified timeline will also be placed in the queue.
