Home Energy Solutions Introduces MicroBlox at Solar Seminar


Barrie, ON March 29 - Today, Canada's leading distributor of solar electricity systems, Home Energy Solutions, came out with a new innovative technology to help Ontario residents adopt solar power sooner and cheaper with better efficiency than ever before. The new Home Energy Solutions MicroBlox solar kit combats traditional solar power problems such as limited roof space, shade, snow and debris, and varying seasonal sunlight by harvesting up to 25% more electricity. Residents can also monitor the simple system from any computer with internet connection.

The MicroBlox system uses the breakthrough Enphase DC-AC Microinverter System, which harvests power from individual solar panels rather than using one inverter to harvest the entire array. The result is a far more efficient system than traditional solar systems. Once installed, maximum output is achieved through a user friendly web based monitoring device -Enlighten- to measure and manage electricity production.

"This new technology shows huge promise for cleaner and renewable energy in Canada. For the first time ever we have a system that configures to smaller and varying structures while providing more efficiency and reliability at a lower initial investment," says Home Energy Solutions President Dave Egles. "Ontario roofs rarely have a large continuous pitch. They have dormers, skylights, valleys and vents. With the smaller solar building blocks, we can put solar on different roof slopes and have the total output combined. The MicroBlox flexibility allows more people to install solar and to participate in programs such as Ontario's MicroFIT program".

The solar kit comes as an attractive option for residents wary of a big financial investment. Because the Microinverters collect power from individual panels, the MicroBlox kit allows solar adopters to start small and expand later. The equipment offers a 15 year warranty with 95% efficiency in weather extremes as harsh as -40 C. The MicroBlox was designed for faster, cleaner solar installations, and the all-black design option looks better on shingle roofs than traditional solar systems.

Home Energy Solutions is holding a two day seminar today and tomorrow. It highlights the opportunities of Ontario's MicroFIT program and how systems like MicroBlox can take advantage of government feed-in tariffs. The seminar will also profile newly distributed Enphase Microinverters, and discuss what benefits they bring to the Canadian solar industry.

"We are excited to watch the response. Our latest seminar sold out weeks in advance, which is fantastic. It shows programs like Ontario's MicroFIT are spawning innovation and growth in the sustainable energy sector, and that solar is gaining popularity with the public," said Egles.
