Yaskawa – Solectria Solar, a U.S. commercial PV inverter manufacturer, announced that their PVI 50 TL and PVI 60 TL inverters are now fully compliant with California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) Rule 21 – UL1741 SA.
Achieving compliance two months prior to the deadline demonstrates Yaskawa – Solectria Solar’s dedication to remain at the forefront of cutting-edge technology and innovation.
“We are committed to providing grid-support enabled utility-interactive inverters to meet our Nation’s needs to ensure a stable grid,” said Miles Russell, Director of Product Management. “Yaskawa – Solectria Solar is continuously working to lead the market with the highest quality and reliability, while keeping up with the latest requirements.”
Rule 21 describes newly defined needs by utilities for grid stabilization as PV generation in California continues to grow. The Rule describes interconnection, operating and metering requirements for inverters to allow the grid to accept increased capacity as California adds more GWs to its grid. Rule 21 will allow inverters to actively interact with the grid and contribute to system-wide stability and reliability. UL1741 SA prescribes testing methods to qualify smart inverters for compliance with Rule 21.
