Given the flexibility of the Solarnative PV system, project planning has never been easier. There is no need to worry about shading obstacles and you cannot make any planning errors that might result in a dangerous or disruptive situation. Sounds comfortable? It is!
Maximizing PV yield
With Solarnative Power Stick micro-inverters, each module is controlled individually. Therefore, there’s no need to worry about shading from dormers, chimneys, satellite dishes, atticas, or trees, and you’re free to combine various module orientations and inclinations in one string. Each PV module will deliver maximum power at any point in time, according to its individual environment. There’s no need for by-passing, as modules with limited power do not affect the rest of the system. Consequently, you can simply install as many modules as you can fit on the roof to maximize the power generation of the building.
No minimum number of modules
Because each module has it’s own inverter, there is no minimum number of modules in a string or plant. Does the small roof area facing east fit only two modules? No problem — just connect it to any existing string with a different orientation. Want to install a few modules on a distant carport? No problem — just add a small separate string to the system.
Independent from local WiFi networks
The Solarnative Smart Energy Home is completely independent from your client’s WiFi. The Solarnative Smart Gateway is located on the roof and connects to our cloud server via LTE/5G. No data cables or additional hardware are required for network connection.
Save cable meters and installation time
The Solarnative PV plant is connected to the building grid with a standard AC cable going straight from the roof to the electric cabinet. Since there is no central inverter in the basement, additional cable ducts and wall penetrations are avoided while saving cable lengths and valuable installation time.
No big and heavy inverters
With our micro-inverters you can build PV plants of any size and you will never have to handle large, heavy string-inverters again. Here’s an example: a string-inverter for a 6 kW plant is about 40 x 50 cm large and weighs around 20 kg. If you build the same plant with Solarnative Power Stick micro-inverters, you will have 17 of our small and handy sticks weighing 350 g each, adding up to a total weight of only 6 kg — that is less than one third. Sounds great? It is!
Simplify your inventory and stock-keeping
No more handling of different inverters for different system sizes, and no expensive inventories! With one Solarnative Power Stick micro-inverter per module, our modular system is suitable for any project size. Therefore, managing your inventory has never been easier. Only one type of inverter needs to be stocked. Just grab the number of inverters you need for a project, and you’re ready to go.
Moreover, your inventory will require much less space and transportation cost due to our inverter’s extraordinary power density. The Solarnative Power Stick is about one fifth in volume and approximately one third of the weight of its smallest competitor.
