Too much of a good thing can lead to grid stability issues

Today an increasing amount of intermittent PV electricity is being pumped into the grid. As grid capacity nears its limits, the issue of grid compatibility is gaining in significance.

Failure to ensure solid preparation of the comprehensive certifications required in this context may delay the launch of service for their solar power system.
