Since the launch of Conext™ XW Pro inverter/charger in early 2019, Schneider Electric has been continually expanding its utility interconnect approvals, and HECO’s Rule 14H is the latest addition of the grid code compliance. The XW Pro is now compliant with

  • IEEE 2030.5 for utility and virtual power plant interoperability,
  • IEEE 1547, UL 1741 SA, Rule 21, and HECO Rule 14H for utility interconnections in United States,
  • PREPA approval for Puerto Rico, and
  • CSA 107.1 for Canada

Hawaii has embraced solar due to the island’s high electricity costs and an abundance of sunshine. The state has one of the highest per-capita rates of solar power in the U.S., with a goal of 100 percent renewables by 2045. The recent report shows that 19 percent of residential customers in Hawaiian Electric’s five-island service territory are using rooftop solar, up from 18 percent in 2018.

“The XW Pro Solar + Storage solution brings Schneider Electric’s decade of experience in high quality and reliable residential energy storage solutions to Hawaii installers and homeowners,” says VP of Marketing, Research & Development at Schneider Electric Solar Business, Bernhard Kiechl.

Schneider Electric also offers robust solar + storage monitoring and configuration with advanced data security for homeowners and installers alike. The system performance is accessible from anywhere on laptops or via the mobile app. Installers will take advantage of features such as multi-site management and remote firmware upgrade.
