What is a compliance check?

SANS 10142-1-2 is the compliance standard that largely governs installations of solar PV and back up inverter systems in South Africa. In addition to this, various different equipment manufacturers have warranty support conditions that request component or space installation criteria. Add to this basic electrical installation standards, best practice and correct inverter/battery programming and a inverter based system may seem like quite a minefield to navigate.

Ultimately all the above mentioned standards are based around two common themes, the first of which is safety and the second system longevity.
