Solectria Renewables LLC, a PV inverter manufacturer, says its SolrenView Web-based monitoring communications gateway has achieved compliance with SunSpec Alliance specifications and is now SunSpec Certified.
SunSpec Alliance specifications are a set of documents that define a data communications standard for solar PV power plants. SunSpec Certified gateways will be available for all Solectria Renewables' commercial and utility-scale three-phase inverters beginning in the fourth quarter of this year. Existing sites can be upgraded subsequently, Solectria says.
‘Data communication interoperability standards are critical parts of next-generation photovoltaic system capabilities and are expected by our customers,’ says Tom Johnson, monitoring product manager for Solectria Renewables.
