MAGE SOLAR partners with SolarBridge Technologies for ACPV Revolution Roadshows
Free ACPV technology training for integrators; Roadshow events planned for Los Angeles, San Diego, and New Orleans
Dublin (Georgia), January 30, 2013. – MAGE SOLAR, a turn-key provider of optimally coordinated PV-system solutions, announced it is partnering with SolarBridge Technologies, the leading supplier of integrated microinverters for certified AC modules, on select events of the ACPV Revolution Roadshow.
The collaborative sessions of the ACPV Revolution Roadshow are planned in Los Angeles (February 8), San Diego (February 15) and New Orleans (February 26). Each free, five-hour training seminar will give PV installers four hours of continuing education credits from NABCEP. The training will provide an overview of the innovative plug-and-play technology of MAGE POWERTEC PLUS AC-modules as well as installation guidelines, monitoring options, NEC considerations, and much more. During a hands-on installation bakeoff of an ACPV demo system participants are eligible to win prizes. The program is concluded by a social hour where installers can speak with company representatives in a relaxed setting.
"We're excited to welcome MAGE SOLAR to our nationwide tour," said Ron Van Dell, president and CEO of SolarBridge Technologies. "The ACPV Revolution Roadshow is a great opportunity for installers to learn how easy it is to install TrueAC modules, and we've had tremendous interest at every stop. MAGE SOLAR is an exceptional partner to work with in terms of product quality, reliability and speed to market."
Since MAGE SOLAR introduced ACPV modules with frame- integrated SolarBridge Pantheon II microinverter, the top-performing module has become an immediate success with integrators. The MAGE POWERTEC PLUS ACPV module not only provides an especially user-friendly option compared to other microinverter or string inverter systems, it is also an extremely secure and time-saving alternative to conventional systems. As one of the first ACPV modules available on the market, the MAGE POWERTEC PLUS ACPV module is backed by a dual 30-year performance warranty extending to the SolarBridge microinverter unit as well as the module's 30-year 80% power output guarantee.
"We are enormously thrilled to be part of the SolarBridge ACPV Revolution Roadshow," said Joe Thomas, President and CEO of Mage. "The immense advantages the plug-and-play technology provides is a huge new step in making solar PV easier, more accessible, and more popular. This great educational program is an opportunity accomplished installers and newcomers to the growing solar workforce can benefit from equally."
