Enphase Energy and Solaria have launched an Enphase Energized AC Module, the Solaria PowerXT-AC. The module features the Enphase IQ 7+ microinverter and will be available on Soligent at locations around the US starting June 2018.
The PowerXT-AC is an Enphase Energized AC Module built by Solaria at its recently expanded manufacturing facility in Fremont, California. The company has integrated Enphase IQ 7+ microinverters with its high-output PowerXT 355 W (60-cell equivalent) modules. Enphase Energized AC Modules allow installers to be more competitive with their improved capital management, reduced labour costs, and accelerated design and installation times. The PowerXT-AC will help solar installers maximise power deployment on customer roofs, thereby reducing payback timelines for customers and increasing profitability for installers.
The Solaria 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 impact the long-term performance of conventional PV modules.
