“Data communication interoperability standards are critical parts of next generation photovoltaic (PV) system capabilities and are expected by our customers,” said Tom Johnson, Monitoring Product Manager for Solectria Renewables. “Our SolrenView monitoring products continue to offer the most advanced data collection, system management, and visualizations tools available to the market, and by joining the SunSpec Alliance, Solectria Renewables’ inverters will be able to be monitored by a large number of third party solutions. The work of the SunSpec Alliance is crucial to the solar industry and Solectria Renewables is proud to be part of the effort moving toward standardized data monitoring.”
Third party product compatibility remains an important part of Solectria Renewables’ inverter technology for the purpose of improving overall PV system intelligence. The ability to communicate through a third party system will assist with faster system deployment, reduction of balance of system (BOS) costs and foster innovation in the data monitoring product sector.
