Solar Power International 2011, PETALUMA, USA: Enphase Energy announced a new addition to the 215-Series microinverters, the M215-Z, which seamlessly integrates with the frame of any Zep Compatible solar module.
The M215-Z combines the performance and intelligence of Enphase microinverters with the time saving and aesthetic advantages of the Zep Solar mounting system. Zep Compatible solar modules are available today from leading module makers, and new Enphase Energized modules were recently announced from Upsolar and Sharp Solar.
“Our module partners want the benefits of an AC Module solution without the hassle of unique SKUs and the risk of unproven technology. We’ve worked closely with our partner Zep Solar to provide module makers a no-compromise solution to their needs,” said Raghu Belur, co-founder and VP of products. “Not only does this approach give our module partners flexibility, it also lets our customers install the brands they know and trust.”
The M215-Z can be connected to Zep Compatible modules while on the ground, allowing the mounting hardware, inverter and module to be installed on the roof at the same time. Wire management is accomplished by snap-in AC wiring clips offered by Zep Solar, further streamlining the installation process.
