APS microinverters lead the industry in innovation, flexibility

Why? The tremendous advantages that APS microinverters offer over traditional "string" units is no secret: optimized yield thanks to individual module output, monitoring and control (no more "shading" effects crippling a whole array); flexibility of system design, and ease of installation (one APS unit handles two PV modules); lower costs, including balance of system components; and the increased safety of distributed current.
Flexibility is exactly why Miami-based Utilities Supply Corp. recently chose APS equipment for the Caribbean market. The unique chip-based architecture of APS microinverters allows each unit to be easily programmed to suit any power grid profile. Inverter compatibility is a key challenge for installers in the Caribbean, where the island grid includes a number of different technical standards including British, Dutch, German, French and American. Because they meet these varied technical demands, Utilities Supply uses APS microinverters exclusively.

 "With APS we can program inverter to grid spec, not grid to inverter," says Mario Fajardo, manager of Utilities Supply Corp. "That's a huge advantage."

Innovative, cost-effective, bankable: PV panels meet their perfect match in APS microinverters. APS ranked No. 2 in global market share among microinverter suppliers by shipments in 2013 (source: GTM Research).

APS is coming to PV America in Boston, June 23-25

PV modules meet their perfect match in APS microinverters. Now APS is bringing its leading-edge solar technology to PV America, the industry's leading conference on photovoltaic module technology.  

APS is sponsoring the conference, to be held June 23-25 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. We'll be hosting a booth on the conference floor with a line of APS products on display.

We look forward to meeting you at the PV America conference. Come by our booth #359 or email today and tell us you'll be there too.
APS microinverters are the safe choice to meet NEC 2014 standards 
New electrical safety standards for solar equipment are here, and APS microinverters meet these tough new demands out of the box.

Under the new National Electrical Code (NEC) 2014, PV system circuits must include a Rapid Shutdown function to cut off the flow of current in case of an emergency. The new standards protect system installers and emergency responders from encountering an energized system.

This Rapid Shutdown functionality is built into every APS microinverter. Our products are engineered for safety - a key feature as state codes change to keep up with the spread of solar across our communities.

"Due to fire and safety issues, we no longer install string inverters," says John Harley, president of Brimma Solar, a leading installer in the Pacific Northwest market. Brimma chooses safe, reliable APS microinverter technology for their customers in Washington and Oregon.
