American Electric Technologies Announces Solar Industry's First 1 MW 1000 Volt UL 1741-Tested Inverter System:

As the U.S. utility-scale solar market develops, North American utilities and Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) firms have attempted to move from 600 Volt solar project designs to 1000 Volt solar designs for increased efficiency and lower costs. However, the lack of a certified 1 MW 1000 Volt solar inverter has been a major hindrance to moving the industry to the next level. In becoming the first 1 MW integrated solar inversion station tested to UL 1741-2010 at 1000 Volts, financiers, developers, utilities and EPCs will now be able to build utility-scale solar farms and achieve higher ROI when designing with higher voltage 1000 Volt UL-tested photovoltaic (PV) panels, yet retain all of the solar farm electrical safety and lifetime reliability benefits of legacy 600 Volt UL-tested systems. “AETI has shipped more than 1 GW of power distribution and conversion s...
