LAFAYETTE, Colorado – Next Generation Energy, LLC, introduces the SunBandit®

Water Heating System for preview at the Solar Power International 2012 conference. The SunBandit® is a revolutionary new approach to solar water heating that utilizes PV technology instead of solar thermal collectors providing an easier, more reliable, and cost-effective renewable energy solution.

The patent pending SunBandit® Water Heating System employs PV modules as the primary energy source to heat water, integrating electric, gas or oil as the secondary source. The NGE® controller maintains the desired water temperature by regulating the flow of energy. The economical price and simplicity of the SunBandit® over traditional solar thermal greatly expands the market for those interested in using the free energy of the sun to deliver hot water.

"The SunBandit® Water Heating System is a disruptive technological approach to water heating by utilizing PV technology to heat hot water simpler, more reliably, and more cost-effectively than conventional solar thermal systems," CEO Dave Kreutzman said. "With the release of the SunBandit® Water Heating System, everyone has access to trouble-free, practical, and affordable solar hot water."

Next Generation Energy® is a cutting-edge energy solutions provider. Through
optimized design, engineering and procurement, Colorado-based Next Generation Energy® leverages over three decades of industry experience to provide complete integrated renewable energy solutions.

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.
