FRONIUS USA UNVEILS NEXT PHASE OF SOLAR - THE FRONIUS FE INVERTER LINE - THE SOLUTION FOR MODULE-LEVEL POWER ELECTRONICS

Revolutionary product builds upon established Fronius and module-level technology to address strong market demand for a bankable and simplified overall system solution.

Portage, IN (July, 2014) Fronius USA is pleased to announce a new product that will significantly simplify system design and installation while delivering maximum energy harvest from complex arrays. The Fronius FE Series will support an architecture using module-level power electronics (MLPE) and is the most bankable of all MLPE technologies currently available. This innovative solution eliminates the need for specialty cabling or stand-alone boxes, the technology is directly integrated into the FE Series inverter. The inverter available in power ranges in residential and commercial applications from 3.0kW to 12.0kW. The Fronius FE Series will be available for order at the beginning of September.


The New Fronius FE Series
The new Fronius FE Series will feature an integrated system ideal for a full system solution to both string inverter power and module-level monitoring. The FE Series is an industry-first for string inverter technology.

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.
