BETHEL, Conn. — Integration has been completed and the Solar-Log® & GE Meters by Solar Data Systems, Inc. are officially reporting for Connecticut’s Residential Solar Investment Program (RSIP) through Connecticut Green Bank.
As a local, qualified Performance Meter Provider, Solar-Log® will provide solar photovoltaic monitoring services for ratepayers who are participating in the RSIP.
The Connecticut Green Bank provides incentives to offset the cost of homeowner investment, making solar power an affordable choice for CT homeowners. Green Bank completed extensive review of the Solar-Log® & GE Meter’s accuracy, compatibility with the reporting platform, and in accordance with the strict guidelines set-up through the RSIP, and approved Solar Data Systems, Inc. as a Qualified Performance Meter Provider in July of this year. The data collected from the Solar-Log® & GE meters is now set up to be reported to Green Bank’s platform to determine the total PV yield. The Solar-Log® & GE Meters are ANSI certified, revenue grade meters with better than 0.2% accuracy.
