FRONIUS INTRODUCES REVENUE GRADE METERING THAT SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCES OVERALL SYSTEM COSTS

Fronius now has this technology integrated as an option in its residential Fronius Primo inverters.

Portage, IN, October, 2015 - Revenue Grade Metering is required of systems in SREC states for the necessary data needed for a system owner to gain these values. Revenue Grade Metering is also helpful in simply providing more accurate data, specifically to investors, to garner valuable information on the production of a solar system. Fronius now has this technology integrated as an option in its residential Fronius Primo inverters.


Fronius is continuing to move toward its vision of 24 Hours of Sun in implementing innovative strategies to make solar easier and better for installers and investors alike. This Revenue Grade Metering software option allows for an ANSI certified inverter with 2% accuracy with no additional hardware or labor required.

This solution is direct from a quality leader and manufacturer, in that it is not produced outside of the quality controls in place for their solar products. The Revenue Grade Metering software inside the string inverter undergoes a unique calibration in production which allows for the accuracy and alleviate issues with configuration in the field.

" We're so excited to offer this option to the already extremely successful line of the Fronius Primos," said Tristan Kreager, Director of Solar Energy at Fronius USA. „We are continually building upon our high quality power conversion products to build solutions for the market and move towards an easily integrated world of renewables."

The Revenue Grade Metering option is now available in the Fronius Primo, 3.8 - 15.0 kW. When ordering, please ensure to request the option. The Fronius Primo is the leading residential string inverter, dual MPPT and features the SnapINverter hinged mounting system. For more information, please call 1-877-FRONIUS or visit their website.
