Load Banks for Solar System Testing

Before connecting to the grid, a solar PV system is required to conduct a load test, at which time the solar system is energized to ensure all inverters are working properly before connected to the grid. If you rely on the power grid for testing, you will likely face scheduling issues.


To meet production deadlines and begin producing power as quickly as possible, load banks for solar panel testing offer the only viable (and timely) solution for this application.

Can you afford to delay your commissioning project by waiting for grid availability? Any delays, even small ones, can negatively affect your return on investment.
