California Rule 21 by the California Public Utilities Commission mandates the interconnection standards for a select set of renewable generators. These interconnection requirements would require Inverters to support IEEE 2030.5 and need to connect to Utility SCADA Systems directly or through an Aggregator initially for monitoring purposes and later for control as well. The requirements also mandate compliance to cyber security requirements as specified by the SIWG and in the CSIP.
ASE has combined its over 35 years of expertise in working with utilities and OEM’s to design a secure and cost effective solution to meet these interconnection standards. Further ASE has partnered with its parent company Kalkitech and its Energy IoT Division to provide a comprehensive solution for Rule 21 that addresses the data collection, protocol and security at the Edge as well as data collection and integration at the Utility or Aggregator level as well.
