Siemens Industry, Inc. has made its next-generation solar microinverters available. Siemens Solar Microinverters will drive cost and complexity out of residential solar installations and provide more reliability and flexibility in to solar photovoltaic (PV) renewable energy systems. Inverters take the direct current (DC) voltage produced by the sun and convert its energy into grid-compatible alternating current (AC) voltage. Traditional string inversion technologies commonly added technical and economic barriers, limiting broader access to solar PV energy solutions.
The high-profile equipment involves an efficient, resilient trigeneration plant to provide heating, cooling, and power service. However, UConn’s most critical asset may be its forward-thinking, campus-wide energy strategy. Read more stories in June Issue 2017.
