Houston-based American Electric Technologies, Inc., a global provider of power delivery solutions for the traditional and renewable energy industries, has received notification from TUV Rheinland that its 1MW 1000V Integrated Solar Inversion Station (ISIS™) has successfully passed the solar inverter tests as outlined in UL 1741-2010. UL1741-2010 is the UL Standard for Solar Inverter equipment and other solar products for use with Distributed Energy resources.

As the U.S. utility-scale solar market develops, North American utilities and Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) firms have attempted to move from 600V solar project designs to 1000V solar designs for increased efficiency and lower costs. However, the lack of a certified 1000V 1MW solar inverter has been a major hindrance to moving the industry to the next level.
