Device Performance Calibration Pricing

NREL’s Device Performance Group makes high-precision, accurate photovoltaic (PV) cell and module testing possible within six weeks or less. We position organizations for success and offer per-device pricing for commercial and noncommercial customers. 

The U.S. Department of Energy subsidizes the cost of calibrations for all companies and labs that have DOE PV subcontracts—all U.S. universities, and all U.S. national laboratories. All other customers pay the full, non-subsidized cost of calibrations.
