Solar Photovoltaic Council
The Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Council exists to develop Standards and technical documents and provide education and training to facilitate the safe and reliable integration of Solar PV into the grid.
Solar PV installations have increased dramatically as the price for solar modules has fallen. Based on this trend, market forecasts show continued capacity growth over the next decade. But these forecasts anticipate effective integration of solar PV into the electrical system, which involves adaptation to bidirectional power flow, increased use of power electronics, and more automated and interconnected systems. Standards and technical guidance are warranted to ensure the safe and reliable integration of solar PV systems at the residential, commercial, industrial, and utility levels.
