November 25, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

SatCon Technology Corp. (Cambridge, MA) announced that its power conditioning system (PCS) for on-site power generation has been found to be compliant with the requirements of several interconnection standards, including Rule 21, that governs electrical power generation systems connected to the electric utility grid. Passing these standards allows on-site power generation systems, such as commercial fuel cells, photovoltaics or turbines, using SatCon's PCS, to be installed in states where compliance with interconnect standards is a requirement, including California and New York.

SatCon's PCS Model AE-462-60-F-A was found to be compliant with the requirements of the California Public Utility Commission Sheet No. 30685-E, Rule 21, Generating Facility Interconnections; New York State Energy Research and Development Authority Standard Interconnection Requirements; the Recommended Practice for Utility Interface of Photovoltaic Systems IEEE P929 and the Recommended Practice on Surge Voltages in Low-Voltage AC Power Circuits IEEE C62.41-1991; and with the requirements of the New Hampshire Chapter Public Utility Commission 900 interconnect requirements.
