“We’re moving the market into areas that have not been penetrated,” Barlock said of the APS line of innovative solar microinverter products. “Our innovative technology is driving the market to a different, larger microinverter model, and at a lower cost.”
Grow Community on Bainbridge Island is the largest planned, solar-ready neighborhood in Washington state. With an array of APS Microinverters and Itek PV panels planned on over 50 neighborhood roofs, each producing up to 7,680 watts of power per residential system. The solar on each Grow Community home will save between 2.5 and 3 tons of coal per year. Here are some pictures from this weeks solar install by A&R Solar.
Washington State Sen. Christine Rolfes toured the APS America headquarters recently, joined by Jessie Turner, legislative assistant to state Rep. Drew Hansen. Rolfes (center) and Turner (third from left) saw firsthand the APS assembly and testing operations, learned more about our innovative technology, and celebrated the propulsive growth of the local solar industry.
Thank you to Sen. Christine Rolfes and the office of Rep. Drew Hansen for their ongoing interest and support for a clean energy future!
Season’s greetings and a year-end Thank You to our many solar partners for APS America’s outstanding success in 2013. Just a few of the year’s many highlights:
- Sales of our APS Microinverter line are up 500 percent year over year
- With significant new distribution partnerships, we made inroads to expansive markets across the US including California, North Carolina and Florida
- We doubled the size of our distribution center to keep up with installer demand
- We tripled our production and distribution workforce, tapping the experience and talent in our local community to fill out the APS America team
New APS microinverter installations were completed across the continental US and beyond. Topping the list were the ambitious Mililani Shopping Center project in Hawaii, Everett (WA) Community College, the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, and six major commercial installations with the Tennessee Valley Authority. These high-profile community installations show the power of APS microinverter technology in action every day!

AN INDEPENDENT SUPPLEMENT BY MEDIAPLANET TO THE SEATTLE TIMES
October 1st, 2013
Washington home and business owners are “going solar” in record numbers and our local industry is powering the boom. Considered these facts:
- Installation of solar energy systems in Washington homes and businesses is nearly doubling every year.
- Solar panel manufacturing output in our state has increased six-fold over the past 24 months, driving down the cost for customers.
With some of the most progressive incentives in the nation, the return on investment for Washington residents today is real and substantial. Working together, our state has made solar a smart buy.
How smart? Residential and commercial property owners with a “Made in Washington” solar array may be eligible for a check of up to $5,000 per year for the power their panels put into the grid, while at the same time their power bill is reduced by the amount of power they produce. There’s a federal tax incentive as well ― put a new solar array onto your home and you may qualify for a credit of up to 30 percent of the cost from Uncle Sam. That’s not a deduction from taxable income, it’s a tax credit ― same as cash. And installation of solar systems in Washington is exempt from sales and use taxes, sweetening the deal for buyers.
With the incentives in place today, a new solar system can pay for itself in seven years of less. After that, all the power you generate goes into your pocket.
That’s a great investment for consumers, but there’s a larger benefit for our Washington economy: local jobs. The boom in demand has driven the production of solar panels and related equipment by Washington manufacturers to record levels, while professional installers in our local communities are finding new customers every day. All across the industry, those are green jobs building a greener Washington. That’s innovation!
And don’t let those could days put you off ― solar panels are more efficient in cool climates like our own. A panel in Seattle produces 90 percent of the power of one in Miami.
APsystems offers advanced, powerful solar microinverter technology for residential and commercial systems. The APsystems solar solution combines highly efficient power inversion with a user-friendly monitoring interface to bring you reliable, intelligent energy.
