These products are now ready to be commercially deployed to offer viable, cost-effective solutions for a variety of applications. All of the systems are 3 phase systems designed for commercial markets and were certified to all the noted standards. The certifications permit sales and installation in jurisdictions including Australia, Canada, Europe, the United States and British Virgin Islands, and many other jurisdictions that recognize these global certifications.
"The certification of these commercial voltage regulation units is the culmination of many years of hard work by our dedicated staff and is a very important milestone for the company," said Brett Ironside, President & CEO of MicroPlanet. "These new units represent completion of the redesign of our product suite to include the new features and attributes end users were asking for. This redesign includes full data and communications smart metering features, improved power quality correction features, bi directional functionality, and a standardized common component platform. MicroPlanet has proven its technology the past years, most recently being highlighted in a report presented at the World Renewable Energy Forum in Denver Colorado by the National Renewable Energy Labs (NREL) on MicroPlanet's successful deployment for the Solar Decathlon. We now have the ability to commercially install these new products and prove the commercial business case and economic value of this technology. We will now focus our efforts on installing units with industry leaders in Australia and the United States specifically targeting iconic reference and testimonial customers that could install our technology in large scale. Our success in this objective will completely change the scope and potential of MicroPlanet as markets recognize the ramifications of this commercially viable energy saving and power quality improvement technology," concluded Mr. Ironside.
