ZBB Energy Corp., a developer of renewable energy power platforms, has received Electrical Testing Laboratory (ETL) listing to the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 1741 standard for its 125 kW grid-tie inverter module of the ZBB EnerSection power and energy control center.

The 125 kW grid-tie inverter allows stored DC energy to be converted to AC energy and put back on the grid. Intertek Testing Services performed the ETL listing to test to the UL 1741 standard, which incorporates Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1547 requirements for the interconnection of distributed generation resources.

According to ZBB, this certification signifies that the 125 kW inverter module of the ZBB EnerSection meets, or exceeds, all of the product safety standards for connection to a utility power grid in the U.S. or other countries where UL standards are accepted.

"This final certification is a significant milestone because it allows us to manufacture, test and certify that all 125 kW units shipped from our facility are ETL listed to UL 1741," says Eric C. Apfelbach, president and CEO of ZBB Energy. "This certification allows us to ship our 125 kW inverters to projects in China, Hawaii and North America."

The ZBB EnerSection is a modular, controllable, bi-directional, hybrid power conversion platform that integrates, manages and optimizes multiple renewable and/or conventional power generation sources simultaneously while incorporating energy storage.
