Ingeteam gets regulator nod for PV inverters in Chile
Chile's electricity regulator has authorised the use of Ingeteam string inverters in residential photovoltaic (PV) systems under the net-billing scheme, the Spanish electrical equipment maker said Monday.
The licence from Superintendencia de Electricidad y Combustibles (SEC) is valid for single- and three-phase inverters made by Ingeteam.
The Chilean law allows residential consumers with generating systems of up to 100 kW to deliver surplus renewable energy to the distribution grid with an associated reduction in their electricity bills.
Ingeteam has supplied over 120 MW of PV inverters in Chile until now, largely due to its participation in the construction of a 100-MW solar plant in the Atacama Desert. Worldwide, the company is among the leading inverter manufacturers with over 4 GWp supplied to customers.
