Phoenix Contact’s EMpro listed in Go Solar California! Initiative

June 5, 2015 -  Phoenix Contact’s EMpro EEM-MA600 energy meter is now listed as an Eligible System Performance Meter with the joint California Public Utility Commission/California Energy Commission’s Go Solar California!  initiative.  This listing allows the meters to be used in solar performance-based incentive (PBI) programs in California and in similar programs throughout the United States that reference the California standards.

EMpro energy meters play a critical role in collecting energy information from the AC circuits commonly found in and around solar electricity installations.  This includes circuits such as those used on the output of inverter stations, to power loads, and for power transmission and distribution in microgrids. 

By combining the meter with various I/O and network communications options, EMpro is easily integrated into almost any system.  The EEM-MA600 meter offers a revenue-grade 0.5 percent accuracy class for concise sub-metering and data logging as required by various renewable energy programs, including Go Solar California! initiatives. 

The Go Solar California! campaign is a multi-agency effort between the California Energy Commission and the California Public Utilities Commission to make renewable energy sources a part of everyday life for millions of Californians.  The program encourages the installation of 3000 megawatts of solar energy systems and 585 million therms of solar hot water systems on residential and commercial properties by the end of 2016 through the use of tax incentives and subsidies.  Participants range from various state agencies and consumers to businesses and public utilities.
