Re: "Plug and play" grid tie inverters
My opinion of such hardware would be much more favorable if you could get UL or CSA listing, and it was acceptable to the utility. Since these products seem to have anti-islanding so that they can't back feed a dead grid it seems that they could be made safe. It these were listed and legal, it WOULD allow people to put in very small scale PV systems. The wouldn't really pay, but it would be a way for people to see how the whole thing works,,especially if they couldn't afford a large conventional grid tie system.
Please note, being a moderator does not add any weight to my opinions 300 watts Siemens/BP panels,plus a Sun 90,, making ~400. ~30 amps into Rogue MPT-3024, 450 ah of Trojan T-105, Morningstar ts300 inverter, a Tri-Metric meter.a collection of antique generators, plus 2 Honda eu-1000i's (also a BS2512 IX controller) and assorted other stuff!
