The Effect of Natural Disasters on Electricity Prices

Storage News - RenewableEnergyWorld.com - Mar, 10/17/2017 - 22:14

A Helpful Roadmap for California's Certified “Smart Inverters”

Storage News - RenewableEnergyWorld.com - Mar, 10/17/2017 - 17:45

Solar inverters are becoming more intelligent this year. California’s Rule 21, which is now partially in effect, governs the safety of PV arrays and their interconnection communications with the local investor-owned utility. 

The rule has three basic phases, of which the first came into effect Sept. 8 under a draft resolution of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). The effective date for the other two phases has not yet been set, however a CPUC vote on the draft resolution is set for October 12, and a California Smart Inverter Working Group (SWIG) workshop on Phases 2 and 3 is scheduled for Nov. 17.
