[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Relatively recent entrant to the solar PV inverter market, PV Powered, announced that its StarInverter PVP 2800 solar inverter is the industry’s first UL and ETL tested inverter to meet Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 1741 Standard and ETL performance confirmation. ETL has confirmed the StarInverter PVP2800 at 2800 watts of power output and with a consistent 96 percent efficiency rating. The complete line of StarInverter Series inverters received UL approval earlier in 2004, while ETL SEMKO testing confirmed the PVP 2800 performance test results on November 16, 2004. Without nationally accepted standards for inverter efficiency testing, ETL SEMKO worked with PV Powered to develop a fair and reasonable inverter performance test method. The results, available for download on the PV Powered website, reflect consistent efficiencies of approximately 96 percent and even higher peak measurements.
