Showcased at the event will be the groundbreaking YC1000 microinverter line, offering true 3-phase output and handling four PV modules per unit. The 1:4 microinverter-to-module ratio significantly lowers BOS costs.

Unlike other microinverter products entering the commercial segment, the YC1000 line requires no expensive step-up or step-down transformer 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 commercial-scale solar has been waiting for," Barlock, said. "APS innovation is making microinverters viable in the 3-phase commercial segment for the first time."

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 U.S. market, is based in Seattle.

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