As of October 13th, the REFUsol string inverters have been included in DEWA’s list for equipment meeting eligibility requirements for their Distributed Renewable Resource Generation (DRRG) program. The DRRG listing provides an overview of the manufacturers and equipment that meet DEWA’s technical standards and are therefore approved for PV on-grid applications. The DRRG program is part of the Shams Dubai initiative, which encourages residents and companies to produce and consume their own energy through a grid-tied PV system.
“We are excited to announce that our inverters were qualified for this initiative,” said Henner Funk, Head of Sales Solar at Refu Elektronik. “It offers anyone the opportunity to use the new generation of REFUsol inverters in their projects and to benefit from their easy installation, high efficiency and low maintenance costs. We are honored to be a puzzle piece in realizing the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to make Dubai the smartest city in the world and to build a sustainable future for the Emirates.” To support customers from the region, REFUsol’s sales team cooperates closely with Prettl Energy Middle East FZE, a subsidiary of Prettl group led by Deepak Solomon. Prettl Energy is based in Jebel Ali, the world’s largest free trade zone, and establishes REFUsol in the Middle East. The listing includes both REFUsol product ranges – the new generation of the 08-23K inverters as well as the 40-46K for larger applications.
