SolarEdge, a leading provider of power optimizers and PV inverters, is now offering a suite of single-phase inverters with a built-in certified revenue-grade meter. The new single-phase inverters will report revenue-grade data directly to the SolarEdge monitoring portal, eliminating the need for installers and owners to purchase additional meters. SolarEdge is the first company to offer listed inverters with ANSI C12.1 certification for residential applications. The inverter’s revenue-grade data can be easily exported by customers and used to collect state and federal rebates, including performance-based incentives (PBIs) and solar renewable energy certificates (SRECs).
The new SolarEdge revenue-grade inverters, listed on the California Energy Commission’s list of “Eligible System Performance Meters,” are available with nominal AC power ranging from 3 kW to 11.4 kW and come with the standard SolarEdge 12-year warranty, extendable to 20 or 25 years. The inverters are designed to work with SolarEdge’s power optimizers to enable more flexible system designs, enhanced safety, increased power output, and real-time performance monitoring.
“The addition of revenue-grade metering capabilities marks the next step toward widespread adoption of SolarEdge optimized systems, the fastest-growing solution in the North American module-level power electronics sector,” said Peter Mathews, General Manager of SolarEdge North America.
Shipping of SolarEdge revenue-grade inverters will begin in April. For more information, including product data sheets, please visit www.solaredge.us.
