Sandia National Laboratories, in conjunction with the United States Department of Energy’s Solar Energy Technology Program (SETP), has issued a Request For Proposal (RFP) for the Solar Energy Grid Integration Systems program (SEGIS).

This RFP provides up to $6.25 million for the development of advanced inverters, controllers, and other balance-of-system components for photovoltaic (PV) distributed power applications. The goal of the SETP is to increase the value of PV as large numbers of systems are incorporated into the utility distribution system.

The deadline for the RFP is January 21, 2008.  The RFP can be downloaded by clicking here.
