TOASTING A GREAT 2013
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!
We look forward to working with our family of installers toward even more success in 2014.
Happy New Year, from all of us at APS America.

APS YC500-A Microinverter
Our flagship microinverter converts the DC power from the solar module to the proper AC current for your power grid. The APS YC500A handles two modules simultaneously (dual MPPT), and is designed to operate in challenging real-world conditions. The unit carries a 25-year warranty, matching the life expectancy of most solar modules. Download the YC500-A datasheet here
APS America will break new ground in 2014 with release of the YC1000-3, the world's first true 3-phase, 4-panel microinverter. Look for the YC1000-3 in the first quarter of the New Year, but see the technical specifications today right here.
