eIQ and KACO collaborate on pre-configured solar PV arrays

eIQ Energy and KACO new energy announced their collaboration to bring eIQ’s vBoost DC optimizers and KACO’s blueplanet XP100-U inverters into one convenient, pre-tested and pre-configured package for solar array designers. The companies site this combination as being a more efficient way for design and parts to be ordered for solar arrays between 100kW and 300kW. Their agreement will span the whole North American market.

“We’re glad to be collaborating with KACO; they make some of the most advanced inverters on the market, and we share a common goal of enabling our customers to maximize the return on their solar investment,” commented Oliver Janssen, CEO of eIQ Energy. “Simplification of the design process is one of the hallmarks of our Parallel Solar product family, and this product combination is another step in that direction. It’s also closely tied to our strategy of using our DC-to-DC conversion capabilities to maximize the effectiveness of existing inverter technologies.”
