Solar Energy USA Crosses 1 GW Solar Output Mark

Solar Energy USA today announced the achievement of producing over 1 gigawatt (GW) worth of solar power from their grid-tied Enphase microinverter-based photovoltaic systems. 1 GW of solar can power up to 750,000 average America

Solar Energy USA today announced the achievement of producing over 1 gigawatt (GW) worth of solar power from their grid-tied Enphase microinverter-based photovoltaic systems.


1 GW is equivalent to 1,000 megawatts (MW) or 1,000,000 kilowatts (kW). 1 GW of solar can power up to 750,000 average American homes.

According to company spokesman Michael Chance, "The microinverter system has proved its value with respect to residential solar panel installations, helping our customers maximize their power output and return on investment. The average performance of PV systems using Enphase microinverters significantly exceeds many PVWatts performance estimates compared to conventional string or gang inverter technology. It is likely that factors such as module-level MPPT, high efficiency during low-light levels, and high system reliability are driving the performance advantages of Enphase microinverter-based installations."

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
