ET Solar Launches AC Module Series at Intersolar North America

ET Solar Group Corp. ("ET Solar"), a leading solar one-stop solution provider, announces the launch of the industry's highest efficiency AC (Alternative Current) module, at Intersolar North America on July 10, 2012

NANJING, China, July 11, 2012 -- ET Solar Group Corp. ("ET Solar"), a leading solar one-stop solution provider, announces the launch of the industry's highest efficiency AC (Alternative Current) module, at Intersolar North America on July 10, 2012. ET Solar's AC modules have been certified to UL 1741 and UL 1703 for the North American market.




Partnering with SolarBridge Technology, a leader in integrated microinverter solutions, ET Solar developed high-efficiency AC modules that are fully integrated with the SolarBridge Pantheon II microinverters. In future, ET Solar will ship AC modules that are preassembled with Pantheon II microinverters to its customers.



Compared with conventional PV Systems utilizing string or central inverters, systems with AC modules maximize individual module output, therefore resulting in minimum system shading loss, which could be significant due to trees and other obstructions on or near residential and commercial roofs. ET Solar's AC modules, that can also significantly reduce the impact of module mismatch, are connected in parallel so as to offer great flexibility in system design and accommodation to the often-complicated residential rooftops.



With the built-in grounding function, ET Solar's AC modules do not have to be grounded individually in the field. On the Pantheon II microinverters, the AC module's maximum output is as high as 238 Watt AC and can prevent power loss under most weather conditions.



ET Solar AC modules provide up to 25% more power yield than conventional PV systems, while reducing up to 50% of the system design and installation cost. In addition, AC module systems avoid high DC voltage, which makes installation and maintenance safer and offers greater safety for firefighters in case of emergency.



ET Solar AC modules use only the highest quality, lowest failure rate components including film capacitors, instead of electrolytic capacitors, to achieve a useful life of over 25 years.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
