Delta says its SOLIVIA 2.5 TR, 3.3 TR, 4.4 TR, and 5.0 TR solar inverters for North America are now compliant with the New York Standard Interconnection Requirements (SIRs).
The New York SIRs address technical guidelines for interconnection and application procedures of distributed generators in the state. The Department of Public Service has adopted a simplified six-step process to cover initial inquiry to final utility acceptance for interconnection of all solar systems up to 25 kW, and an 11-step process for solar systems up to 2 MW.
In order to be considered ‘certified,’ equipment on the New York SIR list must meet certain minimum protective function requirements and be certified by a nationally recognized testing laboratory as UL-1741 compliant.
All of the SOLIVIA NA string inverters with output power from 2.5 kW to 5.0 kW meet these criteria and have now been certified, Delta says. The inverters now qualify for the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority's funding programs.
