EASE incentives only apply to equipment that has completed successful testing by SCE. In particular smart inverters need to have passed CSIP certification, be capable of communications and be listed on the California Energy Commission list of approved smart inverters.
The following products* are approved for installation in the EASE program:
SMA Sunny Boy (solar only)
SMA Sunny Tripower (solar only)
Generac PWRCell (solar + battery storage)
*Some of these inverters may require an additional piece of equipment or an optional module to enable communications. Verify with your installer that it is included in your system design.
