Important reminder

We will be updating our inverter product list from 1 March 2024. We recommend authorised retailers check stock and reach out to manufacturers to ensure their products meet this mandatory requirement well ahead:

  • Solar PV inverters are compliant to IEEE 2030.5-2018 and Common Smart Inverter Profile (CSIP)-AUS ready, achieved via direct inverter integration, an external control system or via a vendor cloud - or equivalent.

To see which inverters are (CSIP)-AUS ready, see the CEC Inverters with Software with Communication clients product list. This requirement was first communicated in the Solar Victoria Notice to Market in May 2023. See section 4.2.1 at the link below.
