SMA Status Update
South Australian (SA) Requirements from 28th of September
Dear Valued Customer,
SMA would like to share some good news for SA customers installing SMA PV inverters from the 28th of September 2020. Since the announcement of the VDRT requirements at the beginning of September, our team has been working hard to support our installers in the SA region and we are proud to be able to meet the regulatory deadlines.

All currently available PV home and business inverters are now approved and documented on the published list from the SA Government Department of Energy and Mining, Office of Technical Regulator, check the list here.

South Australia Power Networks (SAPN) can be selected as an Agent when using SMA inverters.
Remote Disconnect Reconnect System
To provide flexibility to our installers, we’ve ensured multiple options for SMA systems to comply with Reconnect Disconnect Requirements.
SMA is offering an integrated technical solution at no extra cost to installers. SMA is also partnering with other technical providers that support SMA inverters to provide a range of solutions that can meet various requirements. Further documentation on options and requirements can be found here.
