APS America sends out first container shipment of YC500A-H inverters to Hawaii

APS America has added Hawaii to its list of regional deployment for the YC500A-H microinverters. First shipments started going to Hawaii in December 2012 and have been ramping up since then. APS America sent out its first container load of YC500A-H microinverters to Hawaii today. New customers are largely developers who recognize the value of the dual panel configuration of the YC500A-H and the labor savings of the installation. The microinverters shipped to Hawaii are programmed to meet the HECO Rule 14 requirements for output frequency.

APS establishes “100 Schools Solar Roof Program”

Recently, APS established the “100 Schools Solar Roof Program” in Jiaxing, installing PV systems with APS Microinverters on Jiaxing’s Shiyan primary school and Jiaxing’s San Shui Wan primary school. Because APS microinverters were used, the PV system was quickly and easily installed, and the installation did not disrupt classes. The system emits no high-voltage DC electricity, guaranteeing the students’ safety. The Energy Monitor and Analysis (EMA) System developed by APS combines two functions: PV system monitoring and student education. Students experience how modern science and technology can change their lives, including how to lower their carbon emissions and protect the environment. It is our hope that this project be carried out at many other schools in Jiaxing.

APS launches its second-generation microinverter

APS’ newest microinverter, model YC-250, will have peak efficiency of up to 95.5%, a minimum operating voltage of 16V, a maximum operating voltage of 55V, increased energy gain, and be more widely applicable. The YC-250 is 40% smaller and 40% lighter than APS’ original microinverter.The newest Energy Control Unit, ECU-3, will host a local connection, include wired Internet access, and have optional general packet radio service (GPRS) connectivity. Each microinverter can be monitored through a wired or wireless Internet or GPRS connection.APS unveiled its new AC BUS cable, a continuous cable with pre-installed cable branches connected to APS microinverters. This creates a PV system with no single point of failure. To replace or add a microinverter, simply unplug the AC cables for a convenient, cost-effective solution. APS will keep pace with the inverter industry and continue to launch new products to meet market and consumer demands.

APS Microinverters enter Australian market

The APS Australia office was recently opened. Responsible for the sales and marketing of APS products to the Australia market, the office will also provide technical support to local customers. APS has installed three microinverter PV systems in Australia, which has created local interest in APS’ product. APS intends to ship the first 1,000 microinverters to Australia by the end of 2011. In 2012, the company is expected to achieve its goal of installing 30,000 microinverters in Australia.
