NGE solar kits getting powerful boost from APS microinverters

APS microinverters are now featured in pre-engineered kits and custom solar solutions by Next Generation Energy. NGE is using the YC500 microinverter, APS' powerful flagship unit, in its own proprietary PV systems.

SEATTLE -- APS microinverters are now featured in pre-engineered kits and custom solar solutions by Next Generation Energy.


NGE is using the YC500 microinverter, APS' flagship unit, in its own proprietary PV systems. Offering 500 watts maximum output at 95.5 percent peak efficiency, the APS units are ideal for the integrated solar products marketed by NGE.

The NGE integrated PV Solution Kits also include top-tier PV modules and fully flashed racking by Zilla.

NGE chose APS microinverters from among other brands for their leading-edge technology that handles two PV modules per unit with dual performance tracking and optimized power output.

"We are constantly seeking out new and innovative ways to extract the highest levels of power yield from the PV cells in our ready-to-go solar module systems," said Bill Beedon, marketing and business development manager for NGE. "APS is leading the industry in solar microinverter innovations. Its revolutionary approach of individualized, maximized microinverters paired with its quality products and ease of installation is what separates it from the crowd."

NGE will feature APS Microinverter products at its SPI booth no. 2052, Oct. 21-23 in Las Vegas.

The strategic partnership with NGE is the latest in which APS' microinverter technology has been integrated with proprietary solar solutions by leading manufacturers.

"APS offers the most advanced microinverter technology on the market, so no surprise it's finding its way into more integrated solutions," said Paul Barlock, APS senior vice president. "We're pleased to partner with solar leaders like NGE to bring this technology to market in new and more creative applications."

NGE also distributes APS microinverter products as standalone units for grid-tied and off-grid residential and commercial solar applications.

Lafayette, Colo.-based NGE was founded thirty years ago to create simple, globally applicable solutions for capturing and using the free energy of the sun. The company's pre-engineered and custom-engineered solar solutions are simple, tightly integrated, and easy to use, even for the most complex solar installations.

APS was founded in Silicon Valley in 2009, and is now a global leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of microinverters based on their own proprietary, leading-edge solar technology. APS America, representing APS in the US market, is based near Seattle.

APS ranked No. 2 in global market share among leading microinverter suppliers by shipments in 2013 (source: GTM Research).

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
