Lawrence, MA - July 13, 2016 - Yaskawa - Solectria Solar, the leading U.S. commercial PV inverter manufacturer, announced at Intersolar North America today that its transformerless three-phase inverters were chosen for Central Iowa Power Cooperatives (CIPCO) utility-scale solar project that spans five sites across its service delivery territory. The five sites total 5.56MW and are part of CIPCOs plan to incorporate emissions-free resources to their assets.


Yaskawa - Solectria Solars inverters were chosen by the largest engineering, construction and development (EPC) firm in the Tri-State area, Azimuth Energy of St. Louis, Missouri, based on design flexibility, reliability, MPPT granularity, decreased BOS costs and allowing a robust energy production during maintenance. Azimuth Energy has used Yaskawas inverters on other projects and found they were the best on the market.

Marc Lopata, PE President of Azimuth Energy stated, "We're pleased to work with Yaskawa - Solectria Solar again on this group of utility-scale projects. We've found their products and support to be top notch and unmatched by any other inverter supplier in the industry. By utilizing Yaskawa, we've met all production and uptime targets on previously completed utility-scale projects."

"The CIPCO project demonstrates the advantages of using Yaskawas inverters in utility-scale systems," stated Mark Goodreau, Director of Sales of Yaskawa - Solectria Solar. "Yaskawas transformerless inverter solutions reduce Balance of System and O&M costs while maximizing energy production. These significant benefits are crucial to EPCs and system owners when choosing suppliers for long-term investments."

While Yaskawa - Solectria Solar will not be exhibiting at Intersolar North America 2016, many of the companys sales, marketing and executive team members will attend; Yaskawa - Solectria Solar will also be showing its newest three-phase, transformerless 50 & 60 kW inverters, the PVI 50/60TL, in private meeting space.

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
