APS comes to PV America in Boston, March 9-10, with strong opportunities for East Coast solar distributors and installers.


The region has seen outstanding growth for APS over the past 12 months, including agreements with leading solar distributors in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic markets.

"A continued focus on the East Coast is a priority for APS," said Ryan Davies, APS Director of Sales, East Region. "The abundance of tech-savvy installers and end users, coupled in a region with diverse topography, makes APS the perfect solution for every installation."

APS expects continued growth in Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and North Carolina in 2015, and is looking for new distribution and installation partners in those key markets, said Paul Barlock, APS Senior Vice President.

The APS team will be at booth no. 511 on the PV America exhibition hall floor.

To set up a meeting, visit the booth or email sales@apsamerica.com.

Showcased throughout the event will be the YC500, a powerful dual-module microinverter and the APS flagship product.

Also featured will be the new YC1000 true 3-phase microinverter, purpose-designed and built for commercial applications and offering an unprecedented 1:4 microinverter-to-module ratio to significantly lower BOS costs.

Unlike other microinverter products entering the commercial segment, the YC1000 line requires no expensive step-up or step-down transformers to operate.

The YC1000 is available in both 208V and 277/480V configurations, and is now shipping in all APS markets.

"The YC1000 is the solution that commercial-scale solar has been waiting for," Barlock said. "APS innovation has made microinverters viable in the commercial segment for the first time."
