Toronto, Canada [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Sustainable Energy Technologies Ltd. announced that its Sunergy LV (low voltage) and Sunergy ELV (extra low voltage) inverters have been certified and listed by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) to UL 1741 and CSA C22.2 No.107.1-01 standards, making this technology commercially available for sale and installation across North America.
The CSA/UL certified products target the North American commercial market with a 208 volt AC output, peak conversion efficiencies in excess of 96%, and a nominal 5,000 watt power output. Follow-on products will include different power ratings and a 240 volt AC output for residential applications.
“Designed and manufactured in Canada, the Sunergy inverter platform is one of Canada’s most significant contributions yet to expanding the use of solar power around the world,” said Brent Harris Sustainable Energy’s vice president of product development. “For the first time ever, the performance, cost and safety advantages of a massively parallel PV system design are available with an industry standard from factor. Achieving certification for the North American market marks a key milestone in our efforts to make this technology available globally.”
The Sunergy LV and ELV products are based on a standard power electronics and software platform which supports multiple product offerings with a range of power ratings and voltage outputs for both European and North American markets.
