Power-One has appointed David Jacobs as product specialist for the inverter manufacturer’s Aurora Micro range of microinverters.
As reported by PV-Tech’s sister site Solar Power Portal, the move paves the way for Power-One to make a concerted push into the UK solar market. Commenting on the role that microinverters can play in the UK solar market, David Lowen, director of sales for Western Europe Renewable Energy at Power-One, said: “Power-One’s microinverters are particularly well-suited for residential applications in the UK, since they optimise the energy harvest in challenging conditions such as partial and temporary shading, panel mismatching or module differential aging.
“Micro-inverters are still relatively new in the UK and we are pleased to have David Jacobs in this important role sharing his expertise on micro-inverters with customers. The training sessions, in particular, that David will drive are going to be a great opportunity for both distributors and end-customers to learn more about micro-inverters in general and the advantages of Power-One’s Aurora products.”
Jacobs has worked at Power-One for two years after gaining experience in a number of renewable energy sectors. Jacobs will oversee training sessions with distributors and customers throughout the UK.
The company launched its second generation of microinverters in June last year.
