Utility Interactive Inverter Aims To Boost Efficiency
Yaskawa Solectria Solar, a commercial PV inverter manufacturer, announced the launch of the new SOLECTRIA XGI 1500 grid-support utility interactive inverter with full compliance to UL1741SA, and a companion line of exclusive PV source circuit combiners. The flagship model boasts a rating of 166 kW AC and a true, measured peak efficiency above 99 percent.
The XGI 1500 is also the perfect solution for PV project developers, owners, and EPCs that want to secure the 30 percent Federal ITC before the step-down begins, using the 5 percent safe harbor method. By purchasing the XGI 1500 before December 31, 2019, project owners will qualify for the full 30 percent tax credit and have the flexibility to deploy the XGI 1500 inverters on any project site.
The SOLECTRIA XGI 1500 inverter is Made in the USA with global components, and will begin shipping this month from the Yaskawa America, Inc. factory in Buffalo Grove, IL.
“The entire Solectria team has worked very hard to engineer the XGI 1500 with the highest quality, state-of-the-art functionality, and market-leading efficiency and it’s tariff-free!” says Miles C. Russell, Director of Product Management at Yaskawa Solectria Solar. “Our product roadmap begins anew with the XGI 1500; further exciting advancements on this platform are in the works.”
