Siemens today unveiled two new solar microinverters rated for 215 and 250 watt AC output with Integrated Ground technology (IG). The M250 IG microinverter extends the variety of photovoltaic (PV) modules with which the microinverter can now be used to. Modules up to 310W can be used while producing at 96.5 percent CEC efficiency. The IG feature enhances the installation experience by reducing the install time by eliminating the need to install a ground electrode conductor (GEC). This easier installation also allows for savings in labor and materials costs and increases safety during the installation of the solar system.
- Maximized power harvested by each PV module without a single point of failure.
- Reduced cost of installation and materials.
- Reduced complexity with grounding microinverters.
- Continuous monitoring through the Enlighten® software. Enlighten presents current and historical system performance trends, and it informs you of PV system status.
Siemens microinverters are installed beneath each solar module and convert DC power to AC power. They send AC power to the installation’s electrical panel (site load center) and transmits performance data to the envoy. Each microinverter is individually connected to one PV module in the array. This unique configuration means that an individual maximum peak power point tracker (MPPT) controls each PV module. This ensures that the maximum power available from each PV module is exported to the utility grid regardless of the performance of the other PV modules in the array. That is, although individual PV modules in the array may be affected by shading, soiling, orientation or PV module mismatch, the Siemens microinverter ensures top performance for its associated PV module. The result is maximum energy production from your PV system with no single point of failure.

Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions? Some beginnings of what to do about it! In her Opening Keynote at 16th Cloud Expo, S...
