The new module features the Enphase IQ 7+ Microinverter and has been designed to deliver high performance through Solaria’s proprietary module technology. This in turn is expected to deliver improved capital management, reduced labour costs and accelerated design and installation times. It will become available at particular locations around the US from June 2018.
“Customers who insist on quality AC solar modules will enjoy the many benefits of simplified system design and reduced costs with the PowerXT-AC” said Suvi Sharma, president and chief executive officer of Solaria Corporation. “By outfitting solar arrays with these modules, we believe installers will bring their customers great-looking, highly efficient solar systems.”
The PowerXT-AC is based on Solaria’s all-black, high output PowerXT 60-cell equivalent module and features a black back sheet. The proprietary PowerXT platform uses Solaria’s advanced cell interconnect and module production processes, which significantly boost power generation while avoiding reliability challenges that can reduce conventional PV modules’ long-term performance. The PowerXT-AC will be manufactured by Solaria at its recently expanded facility in Fremont, California.
Enphase’s seventh-generation microinverter platform, the IQ 7+ Micro, is a leading product in the industry, equipped with broad regulatory compliance, advanced ‘Smart Grid’ features, and an outstanding fire safety rating.
