AriSEIA's News You Can Use
May 20, 2021
Dear Members,

During our last Public Policy Committee meeting, there was discussion on inverter settings and there was a request to solicit our membership for feedback. 

The question is:
“Have any installers gone through the process of utility approval for inadvertent export or limited export systems?”

The inverter settings are the way to achieve this. They are password protected from the customer, but installers are able to login and set them per the utility agreement. 

If you or your member company has gone through this process and can respond in the affirmative to Nicole@AriSEIA.org it would be greatly appreciated and helpful in conveying the information to the committee.

Thank you in advance. 

At your service,

Nicole LaSlavic
AriSEIA Executive Director
