The primary objective of this paper is to develop a communication link for monitoring and controlling a grid connected inverter in a remote location. The paper presents developments that have been carried out to improve the communication link. In the first part of the paper LoRa based communication link has been selected from a pool of Radio Teletype, VHF/ UHF data transmission method. Range, data transfer rate, and power consumption have been taken into consideration to select a suitable method. The comparison indicates that LoRa is superior compared to other technologies but has some security and reliability issues. This paper also presents an encryption algorithm to improve the security of the LoRa link. Local data storage added to the system before transmitting data increases the system reliability. Display at the transmission end is added to improve the user friendliness of the developed link. In the end, a method is proposed to improve the reliability of the communication link
