Solectria Renewables has announced that its SolrenView web-based monitoring communications gateway is now SunSpec certified. SunSpec Alliance specifications define a data communications standard for photovoltaic power plants. It can be downloaded free of charge from the SunSpec Alliance web site.
SunSpec Alliance’s mission is to accelerate the growth of the renewable energy industry by establishing data communications interoperability. SunSpec-certified gateways will be available for all Solectria Renewables’ commercial and utility-scale three-phase inverters beginning in the fourth quarter of 2012. Existing sites can be upgraded subsequently, the company says.
Third party product compatibility remains an important part of Solectria Renewables’ inverter technology for the purpose of improving overall PV system intelligence, the company says. The ability to communicate through a third party system will assist with faster system deployment, reduction of balance of system costs and foster innovation in the data monitoring product sector
