Silicon Valley-based module developer Aptos Solar to accomplice with NEP on AC modules for U.S. market
Solar module developer Aptos Solar Technology and micro-inverter manufacturer Northern Electric Power (NEP) have partnered to provide high-performance AC solutions for the US solar market.
The Silicon Valley-based companies have entered into a collaborative partnership that combines the design and engineering of their products for optimal power generation while lowering the balance of system costs and reducing installation labor time.
When high performance DNA solar modules from Aptos Solar Technology are coupled with microinverters from NEP, solar companies have the opportunity to maximize the energy production of the system and avoid inverter clipping. This is the first AC module partnership announced following the release of NEP’s latest “Macro Inverter” capable of converting 500 WAC power. Similarly, the popular NEM BDM600 supplies power to two PV modules in a micro-inverter.
“We believe that real innovation improves technology and performance while reducing manufacturing costs. Partnering with NEP to create an AC solution that offers the best technology in the industry at the best price for our customers naturally fits our team, ”said Frank Pham, Co-Founder and COO of Aptos Solar Technology. “We are confident that unifying these technologies will provide a practical solution to the changing needs of the industry.”
“We are excited to work with Aptos to deliver tangible benefits in terms of performance, speed and cost efficiency,” said Ed Heacox, CEO of NEP. “We share the spirit of Silicon Valley to go beyond the old norms to advance the solar industry.”
Currently, Aptos Solar’s 60-cell DNA module is in the 330W range, while the 72-cell modules are over 400W.
