Power-One and Solar Topps recently signed a supply deal, which will see Power-One provide 2MW of its solar PV inverters to Solar Topps. In addition to Schott’s American-made panels, Power-One’s Phoenix, Arizona manufactured inverters will allow Solar Topps to offer its customers a “made in America” solar power array.
“We selected Power-One's solar power inverters using the same electrical engineering principles that we use to evaluate all of our best-of-breed solar power products,” said Neal Uppal, president of Solar Topps. “We needed a solar power inverter that could handle the solar electricity over-production that our zero power loss (-0/+5%) solar panels produce. We also needed an inverter that provided maximum engineering flexibility in order to meet the stringent design requirements of Arizona's challenging environmental conditions and diversified rooftop architectures. Power-One beat the competition in every category we evaluated.”
