Manufacturer REFUsol has announced that its 12kW, 16kW, 20kW and 24kW inverters are in compliance with the New York Standard Interconnection Requirements (SIR) and qualify for the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s (NYSERDA) funding programs.
REFUsol will be able to use its inverters – with CEC-rated efficiency between 97.5 and 98% - will be used with installers and developers that have been awarded funds by NYSERDA in order to promote the growth of solar energy in New York. In January, NYSERDA and the Public Safety Service Commission (PSC) awarded US$30 million to help fund large-scale solar projects that will assist facilities in New York City and lower Hudson Valley in generating electricity for their own use. The funds are designed to offset system installation costs in New York State as part of the renewable energy portfolio standards in New York City and Westchester regions.
REFUsol inverters were tested by Underwriters Laboratory (UL) last year and the design has been accepted and certified for all New York State utilities.
“Our compliance with New York SIR and qualifying for the programs in New York that encourage renewable energy development raises REFUsol’s profile in the North-eastern US”, said Alan Beale, director of sales and marketing, REFUsol. “We are looking forward to more installations in this very important market.”
In February this year, IHS PV Inverter Market Tracker report included REFUsol in its top ten of PV inverter suppliers of 2011.
