Puerto Rico - Renewable Energy Equipment Certification

May 06, 2015


Certification of Photovoltaic Equipment

EAA specifies that PV equipment must meet UL 1703 requirements, and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards, as certified by a Nationally Recognized Test Lab. The manufacturer must guarantee that the equipment will be operating at minimum 80% capacity after 20 years. The EAA provides additional technical requirements for inverters and batteries.

Certification of Equipment for Generating Wind Energy

EAA specifies that a wind turbine must meet IEC standards including 61400-1, and if it is inverter integrated 61400-2, 61400-11 and UL Std. 1741. Also the manufacturer’s data sheet, as well as a minimum 5-year warranty letter are required.  There is a proposed amendment to the certification requirements for generating wind energy. See the Puerto Rico Green Energy Incentives Public Notices for more information.

The Green Energy Fund maintains lists of certified equipment, eligible for the Fund's incentives.
