Canadian Solar has introduced the ‘ResidentialAC’ module to its ‘Intelligrated’ Power product family, at Solar Power International 2012. Intelligrated Power integrates solar module electronics into the module to significantly reduce the cost of system design and installation. ResidentialAC is an AC solar energy solution with advanced technology that is claimed to deliver a double-digit increase in solar power production over traditional micro-inverters.
The system is claimed to eliminate the danger of high voltage DC power and wiring for safer, easier installation
Pre-installed at the factory, ResidentialAC's advanced inverter technology was designed and built from the ground up, with a core focus on performance and longevity. The technology eliminates life-limiting components, dramatically increasing the inverters' life expectancy. ResidentialAC' s voltage-safe “plug and play” technology is easily configurable to any desired system size, allowing on-the-spot system modifications and eliminating the necessity for highly skilled labor. The module is covered by Canadian Solar's 25-year warranty and is ‘double protected’ by matching warranty insurance, guaranteed by three of the world's top-rated insurance carriers. Monitoring software is included, allowing customers module-level tracking of solar panel performance to optimize the system's solar energy production
Residential and commercial PV installations.
Available in a sleek black frame, the ResidentialAC module is designed specifically for home and business solar installations. It increases system performance with advanced technology, shade tolerance and no module mismatch, delivering higher energy production than standard micro inverters. The new AC modules are safer and easier to install than traditional technologies, reducing costs on design, labor and balance of system.
September 2012 onwards. On display at SPI 2012 at Canadian Solar’s booth, #2200.
