CEC's Inverter List

 

In SA, inverters are required to be capable of remote disconnect and reconnect. SMA inverters can achieve this functionality through an SMA solution, or by third party hardware/software which are listed on the Department for Energy and Mining "List of Relevant Agents" document.

SMA is offering an integrated technical solution at no extra cost to installers. To use the SMA solution for Remote Disconnect/Reconnect requirement, select "SA Power Networks - SMA" as the Relevant Agent in grid connection application forms. The SMA solution for remote disconnect/reconnect is only compliant if the instructions below are followed. These instructions include additional steps during commissioning, portal registration and electronic customer consent.
