Inverters

The inverter list will be updated approximately every two weeks from July 17 through September 1, 2017 to support California Public Utilities Commission Rule 21 requirements for smart inverters which takes effect on September 8, 2017.

List of Inverters

There are two versions of the list of eligible inverters that are available for download - Simplified and Full Data. The Simplified version is intended to show only basic information about the inverters such as manufacturer, model number, description, and weighted efficiency. The Full Data version contains additional information such as certification dates, reported nameplate ratings and temperature coefficients that may be of interest to stakeholders.

Submitted information is reviewed by the Energy Commission prior to equipment being added to the List of Eligible Equipment but it is not continuously monitored. The Energy Commission does not confirm manufacturers' self-reported information. Please note that equipment on the Energy Commission's lists have undergone tests to achieve minimal safety and performance standards. The Energy Commission and the State of California make no claim or warranty on the equipment and its safety, performance or durability. Anyone considering installing solar energy systems are encouraged to conduct their own research.

Eligibility

For information on equipment eligibility and required laboratory-tested data, please refer to the SB 1 Guidelines, Appendix B.
