SunWize Announces Availability of Samsung Solar Modules

SunWize Selected as Samsung's North American Distributor

KINGSTON, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SunWize Technologies, the solar industry's leading wholesale distributor, has been selected by Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. to introduce and distribute its solar modules to the North American market. The first Samsung solar module offered by SunWize is the LPC241SM, available for immediate delivery. SunWize will be exhibiting the LPC241SM at Solar Power International 2010 in Los Angeles, CA, October 12-14, at Booth 3911 in South Hall.

Samsung Electronics, a global leader in consumer electronics, semiconductor and display technologies, has been developing its solar cell production capabilities for several years and recently entered the marketplace. It has taken its manufacturing expertise in semiconductors and developed its own line of highly efficient monocrystalline solar cells and modules. Samsung chose SunWize as its distribution partner for the LPC line, and as the primary distributor of Samsung modules for the North American market.
The LPC241SM solar module stands out in today's marketplace with its 15+% module efficiency, higher than any other product in its class. It sets a new benchmark for price/performance and narrows the performance gap against premium priced modules. The superior PTC power density of the LPC241SM provides residential and commercial installers a competitive edge, as well as higher value to end-users in terms of cost per kWh. The quality of Samsung modules is evidenced by a world class peak power tolerance rating of -0%/+2%, guaranteeing full performance.
"We are excited to have been chosen by Samsung to launch their products into the North American market. Samsung is a prominent and well trusted consumer brand that will be quickly embraced by both installers and homeowners," states David Kulik, President and CEO of SunWize. "We look forward to a long partnership."

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
