SolarBridge Ties Into Mexican Market
Austin-based SolarBridge Technologies, which develops microinverters for the solar power industry, reported Thursday that it has partnered with Solartec Energia Renovable to introduce the firm's modules in Mexico. The company explained that Solartec will manufacture and sell AC modules, powered by its Pantheon microinverters, into the Mexican market. SolarBridge's products convert photovoltaic, DC power into usable, AC power, directly on solar modules, which is far less complex than wiring an array of PV panels into a central power inverter. SolarBridge says its microinverters reduce field installation time by 20 percent, and deliver up to 25 percent more energy, due to lack of voltage loss which is common with long DC wiring runs.
