    I don't believe their plug and play inverters are legal in the US. They lack listing by UL or any other recognized testing agency. Can't speak for the European wind inverters.

    Click on this Google Search for various threads where we have discussed SWEA.

    As Tony said, last time we looked, there appeared to be no UL/NRTL listing marks for these inverters...

    At the vary least, they are not legal to connect in the US/Canada to the electrical grid, the Utility could turn off your power if they find out (meter spinning backwards), if there is a fire your insurance may not pay, etc...

    Obviously, the chances of getting caught are low--but so is the dollar value of the power generated--so why take the risk.
