Since 2010, Lighting Global has maintained quality standards for off-grid solar products with modules smaller than approximately 10 peak watts (pico-solar products). These standards set a baseline level of quality, durability, and truth in advertising to protect consumers. We are now considering whether to submit these quality standards for adoption by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). Making such a transition could provide benefits to the sector, but it also involves some drawbacks and risks. This memo outlines the pros and cons of making such a transition and includes a request for feedback no later than Friday, June 30, 2017.
