Solectria Renewables has introduced a new 15 kW, three-phase (208, 240 and 480VAC) commercial inverter that offers a peak efficiency of 95.8%, according to the manufacturer.

Features of the inverter from the Lawrence, Mass.-based producer include a heavy-duty visible-blade DC disconnect, fused AC disconnect, oscillating high-efficiency fan control, nighttime energy consumption, RS-232 communication interface and data logging software.

The integrated, AC-output inverter is ideal for 15 to 50kW commercial PV systems, says the manufacturer. Citing the complement of standard features assembled and tested as a system at the factory, Solectria says that installation of the inverter (and balance-of-system portion of a grid-tied PV system) is simplified, thus reducing installed system cost.

Solectria adds that the inverter has already been chosen for use in PV systems across the United States by several leading PV system design and installation companies such as Solar Design Associates, Spire Corporation, Solar Works, Inc., Sunlight Solar Energy and Nexgen Energy Solutions.
