    STORY SUMMARY: CSA International will officially open its brand new
laboratory dedicated to testing and certifying solar photovoltaic panels and
related components at its Richmond, BC, facility on Friday, May 29, 2009, at
10:00 a.m. PT.
    Media will witness first-hand the rigorous testing procedures solar
photovoltaic panels are subject to during a facility tour. These tests can
include: simulating the effects of prolonged rain on solar panels, testing the
panels' ability to withstand impact by dropping a steel ball directly on the
panels, and how panels withstand scratching by cutting the surface with a saw.
