Solar Meter Collar + Smart Module
Take our Solar Meter Collar to new places with an embedded Smart Module. The Smart Module is designed for utilities looking to do more than streamline the solar interconnection process. The Smart Module adds metering and communications features to our product that integrate with existing utility back-office infrastructure. Solar installers still get the benefit of fast interconnection, and utilities get access to solar production data without the need to install a second solar-specific meter.
Harness the Grid Edge
Our Solar Meter Collar + Smart Module is UL-Listed equipment that enables rapid interconnection of grid-ready DERs like solar PV. The device creates a safe, standardized, low-cost alternative to traditional wiring methods and avoids the need for installing a second meter. The collar contains onboard metering, communications, and controls to unlock alternative tariff models and grid management capabilities.
The Solar Meter Collar + Smart Module operates in parallel with a utility’s electric grid. It is approved for use with grid-interactive photovoltaic (PV) systems where the inverter(s) meets UL 1741 requirements.
It can be factory configured to terminate solar field wiring to either the load side or line side of the utility meter.
Features include all Solar Meter Collar features plus…
- Revenue-grade metering of DER source(ANSI C12.20 0.5 Accuracy Class)
- Cellular or AMI communications options
- Cloud-based fleet operations system
