  • Yaskawa Solectria Solar announced that it has actually partnered with First Solar to create a new variation of the SOLECTRIA XGI 1500-250 utility-scale string inverter. The enhancements maximize the XGI 1500-250 for First Solar's advanced thin-film modules.

" At Yaskawa Solectria Solar we aim to enhance our position as leaders in innovation and also to build on the tested technology of our XGI 1500 inverters. Both companies have U.S.-based design as well as production, and this collaboration combines our design teams and industry-leading innovation at just the right time. We have really amazing opportunities ahead working carefully with First Solar," said Miles C. Russell, director of item management at Yaskawa Solectria Solar.

In this collaboration between the two companies, Yaskawa Solectria Solar, the only US-based supplier of commercial and also utility-scale string inverters-- offers its breadth of inverter style experience and also U.S-based manufacturing to the effort. The goal is to develop a variation of its new SOLECTRIA XGI 1500-250 utility-scale string inverter that enables a based DC input, and also thereby makes certain ideal assimilation with First Solar's high performance Series 6 and Series 7 advanced thin film PV modules. These PV modules, established initially Solar's R&D labs in California and Ohio, established the market benchmark for trustworthy energy manufacturing, optimized layout and also environmental performance.

" We expect that Solectria's new inverter design, in mix with First Solar's module technology, will certainly assist asset owners and also drivers additionally boost the LCOE of their solar installations," stated Alex Kamerer, manager of product management for First Solar. "This effort represents the best of American solar, uniting leading US-developed photovoltaic or pv modern technology with US-developed inverter technology to deliver an enhanced service for united state solar assets."
