Ceiling Fan Capacitor Question

The attached photo shows the capacitor I'm replacing. I ordered the exact same capacitor (black) online and they sent me the gray one. They are both 4.5uF, but the original is 270WV.AC, and the gray one is 300V.AC. Is that a problem? or am I okay with what they sent me?

Capacitors used in AC are normally rated in peak volts AC. Most AC voltmeters display RMS volts AC. You must divide the RMS reading by 0.707 to get the peak AC volts. So, whether your AC is powered by 120/240 RMS volts AC. the replacement capacitor voltage rating is adequate.
