The OZpcs-RS40 power conversion system from Oztek Corp has been added to the California Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) Verified Equipment List. Approval was issued on August 10 by AESC Inc., who is the lead member of the SGIP Technical Working Group (TWG) which reviews new equipment for compliance in the SGIP Program and adds new systems to the SGIP Verified Equipment List.
What is it? The 40-kilowatt OZpcs-RS40 is a rack mounted, four-quadrant, bi-directional, three-phase power conversion system (PCS) specifically designed for grid tied and micro-grid energy storage applications. The transformerless design and 2.5U rack mounted form factor allows for easy paralleling, enabling flexible and sophisticated energy storage system architectures. The system has been integrated into numerous grid-tied and micro-grid energy storage systems across the country and has a strong track record of high-quality performance and dependability.
“We are pleased that the RS40 passed the verification process and is now fully compliant with CPUC (California Public Utility Commission) SGIP requirements,” said Oztek Chief Technical Officer Dave Zendzian. “This certification allows our customer to apply and receive rebates for purchasing our equipment in the growing California Energy Storage Market.”
The CPUC’s Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) provides incentives to support existing, new, and emerging distributed energy resources. SGIP provides rebates for qualifying distributed energy systems installed on the customer’s side of the utility meter. Qualifying technologies include wind turbines, waste heat to power technologies, pressure reduction turbines, internal combustion engines, microturbines, gas turbines, fuel cells, and advanced energy storage systems.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
