Vikram Solar's new US office will be located in Boulder, Colorado.
Vikram Solar’s initial products for the American market are 60-cell, 1000 VDC 250 and 255 polycrystalline modules with either clear or black frames. 72-cell 295 Watt is also available for immediate order, and UL/CEC certification for 300 to 330 Watt is pending for late Q3.
