This article will discuss the advantages of using microinverters with AC coupling for residential, single-phase applications. The two leading microinverter manufacturers in the U.S. market include...
Last Tuesday, leaders of the Baker Administration’s Department of Energy Resources (DOER) released their final plan for the state’s new solar incentive, the Solar Massachusetts Renewable Energy...
How do you value solar energy production? That is a question several prominent utilities and Public Utility Commissions (PUCs) are debating across the country as initial Net Energy Metering (NEM)...
Although it depends on volume and module type (Poly, Mono, Optimized, etc.), module pricing is 25% less today than it was at the start of the year. This has allowed many independent solar contractors...
Under the proposed incentive, eight blocks of 200 MW each would be opened up to encourage 1600 MW of additional solar capacity in the state over the next several years. Within each block, solar...
The design of PV systems can be fairly simple as well as extremely complex. No matter how difficult or easy, it is important to document the design process. Doing so will help flush out issues...
One of the main considerations to AC-coupling design is the ratio between the Grid-Tie inverter (GTI) and the Battery-Based inverter (BBI). Why? There are conditions that might occur when the site...
