SolarWorld will unveil AC solar panel
SolarWorld, the largest U.S. crystalline-silicon solar technology manufacturer for more than 40 years, announced today that the company will debut an integrated alternating-current (AC) solar panel at the trade show Solar Power International.
The company will unveil the SolarWorld AC Module – available for purchase early next year – at its booth at the largest trade show in the Americas from Sept. 12 through 15 in Las Vegas.
By integrating the microinverter and eliminating the need to install a centralized string inverter, the SolarWorld AC Module will:
Speed installations and simplify logistics, reducing installation labor costs and therefore system costs.
Increase safety during installation and operation.
Offer module-level optimization and therefore enhance power output.
Meet NEC 2014 and 2017 690.12 rapid-shutdown requirements.
Enable in-field replacement and upgrade.
