MAGE SOLAR introduces First Plug- and Play AC-Module on Market with 30/30-Warranty

Signature MAGE POWERTEC PLUS module now available as AC-version with 30 year warranty on microinverter and 30 year power guarantee on module; Plug-and-play technology guarantees lowest field-installation cost

Dublin (Georgia), July 05, 2012. – MAGE SOLAR, part of the globally operating MAGE GROUP, announced today that it is introducing the first AC-module on the market backed with a 30-year assurance for module and microinverter.


The top-performing, premium quality MAGE POWERTEC PLUS PV-Modules are leading the industry with their positive 5 watt tolerance, 10-year product warranty, and 12-year 90% power guarantee, and the company's distinctive 30-year 80% power guarantee. Now MAGE SOLAR is extending the same exceptional features to the newest member of its powerful product family, the MAGE POWERTEC PLUS AC-Module which will make its first appearance at Intersolar in San Francisco this month.

MAGE SOLAR's complete AC-PV solution provides an extremely secure and time-saving option compared to other stand-alone microinverter systems. As the DC-to-AC microinverter is integrated into the module frame, the need for one central inverter or multiple string inverters is eliminated: the pre-installed, fully insulated AC-cable can simply be plugged into the AC-cable connector of the adjacent MAGE POWERTEC PLUS module, making this one of the easiest to install modules in the rapidly growing PV-market.

The microinverter technology is provided through a partnership with SolarBridge Technologies, the Texas-based leader in innovative module-integrated inverter design. SolarBridge Pantheon II microinverters preassembled in the new MAGE SOLAR AC-module feature an unrivaled 30 year warranty to match the module's industry-leading 30 year 80% power guarantee.

"MAGE SOLAR is a global leader in modules known for their reliability and innovation," said Ron Van Dell, President/CEO of SolarBridge Technologies. "SolarBridge microinverters are designed for reliability and this partnership demonstrates our shared commitment to the long life of our products."

The first MAGE SOLAR AC-modules are being shipped towards the middle of this quarter to customers throughout the Americas. The significantly reduced installation time and increased install-security of the MAGE POWERTEC PLUS AC-Module is an attractive option for many of the world's fastest growing PV-markets like the US, Mexico, and Brazil.

"SolarBridge has been an ideal partner for our AC-module," says Joe Thomas, CEO and President of MAGE SOLAR USA. "The extreme reliability and top performance of SolarBridge microinverters is a perfect match for our modules. We are very proud to be able to offer such a game-changing technology on this exceptionally high level of quality."

The trend-setting MAGE POWERTEC PLUS AC-Module will debut as part of MAGE SOLAR's impressive product and service portfolio at Intersolar in San Francisco from July 10-12. Visitors at the MAGE SOLAR Booth #7623 are invited to take a firsthand look at other featured products, such as the new MAGE POWERTEC PLUS high-wattage modules and its black versions for aesthetically appealing design applications, as well as MAGE SOLAR's mounting solutions, plus the company's finance and training opportunities.
