APS America Senior Vice President Paul Barlock will be a featured panelist during summit's first full day of events, April 15.

Barlock will appear in a panel discussion on "Dynamics in the Distributed PV Inverter Market," beginning at 2:15 p.m. The panel will be moderated by MJ Shiao, director of solar research for GTM Research.

APS is exclusive sponsor of the day's second track of presentations, including this panel discussion, under the broad theme of PV Inverter Advancement.

APS will also present its advanced microinverter line in the summit exhibition space throughout the event.

To set up a meeting with the APS team during the GTM Solar Summit event, come by the exhibit or email sales@apsamerica.com.

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).

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
