APsystems Busts Myths about Commercial Microinverters on The Pitch

Microinverters have long been a go-to in residential solar arrays for how they simplify installation, provide panel-level monitoring and shade mitigation, and meet rapid-shutdown code requirements. But can they have the same impact in the commercial sector? APsystems’ Senior Director of Marketing USA, Jason Higginson, sat down with Solar Builder magazine on The Pitch to answer that question. Discussing APsystems’ quad microinverter, the QT2, he busted common myths about microinverters in commercial arrays, including their cost, power output, and points of failure. (Spoiler alert: the QT2 comes out on top!)

Press Release: APsystems and OSW Announce Global Distribution Agreement

JIAXING, China & SYDNEY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–APsystems, the global leader in multi-platform solar MLPE technology, and OSW, Australian’s largest Solar Distributor, active globally, have announced a global distribution agreement, bringing APsystems’ technology and OSW’s One Simple Way philosophy and global distribution capability to markets around the world.

“Our core values and global capability are directly aligned with those of OSW, and we look forward to partnering with them to positively impact the solar market and bring more APsystems products to customers across Europe and the United States.”

Both companies cite powerful overlaps in values and purpose as reasons for the strategic alignment. APsystems strongly values innovation, evidenced in its microinverters, the most powerful multi-module microinverters in the world. OSW is likewise dedicated to bringing superior solar technology to its customers. Both firms also continue to expand globally; OSW has recently expanded its operations in Europe and the US with dedicated warehouses and offices in Poland, Munich, the Netherlands, and Texas. APsystems has a strong position in Europe with regional offices in Lyon, France and Amsterdam, Netherlands, and recently shifted its U.S. main office to Austin, Texas last year. The partnership agreement naturally covers Europe and the United States.

“Microinverters have gained strong traction in solar rooftop segments around the world. APsystems offers high quality solar microinverters with leading-edge technology,” said Anson Zhang, Co-founder and CEO at OSW. “Combined with their global product footprint, it was a natural partnership when we decided to include a microinverter brand in our portfolio.”

“OSW is known for empowering its customers with the best solar products in the industry,” said Olivier Jacques, APsystems President of global business units. “Our core values and global capability are directly aligned with those of OSW, and we look forward to partnering with them to positively impact the solar market and bring more APsystems products to customers across Europe and the United States.”

Leveraging a successful dual microinverter introduction last year with the DS3 series, a dedicated residential solar product, APsystems recently released its second generation of native 3-phase microinverters with the QT2, a powerful Quad microinverter for C&I applications. Both companies look forward to bringing these new products, and other APsystems innovations, to markets where OSW is expanding its growing presence.

APsystems and OSW are also committed to impacting climate change with high quality products that offer system-owners an electrical generation alternative, providing tangible, daily value in the form of pure solar energy at a lower overall cost and with zero emissions.

The Power of Quad Microinverters for Commercial Rooftops

As part of Solar Power World’s 2023 Trends in Solar series, an article was recently published entitled, “Mightier microinverters can power 4 solar panels,” that highlights APsystems as the forerunner in making a four-in-one (quad) microinverter as early as 2014. In addition, the article features Jason Higginson, senior marketing director of APsystems, providing information on why microinverters are now ideal for commercial solar applications due to the quad design. In particular, quad microinverters reduce cost, speed up installation and produce more energy over the life of the system.
