Thanks to a new partnership with U.S.-based solar manufacturer Aptos Solar Technology, Hoymiles microinverters will be available in the U.S. residential solar market.
“Hoymiles has been a leader in the global microinverter sector since its inception in 2012. It has a proven track record of commercial success and has grown exponentially over the last 10 years. This is just the beginning as its future with Aptos is very bright,” states Alex Kim, President of Aptos Solar Technology. “This partnership will create exciting opportunities, not only for us, but for the entire U.S. market.”
Microinverters can be hit or miss when it comes to meeting the power output of higher wattage panels. A fair amount of energy can be lose via clipping, which Aptos had seen with its panels in the field.
“We are bridging this gap with this partnership. In terms of technological advancement, there is no one doing it better than Hoymiles,” stated Frank Pham, Co-Founder & Managing Officer at Aptos Solar Technology. “Our partnership will allow us to bring an affordable top-tier product to our distribution network,”
Hoymiles was successfully listed in China’s capital market with $875M raised in December 2021. Its MAC-800 dual unit microinverter is engineered for maximum AC power output when paired with Aptos Solar Technology’s high-power solar panels. The MAC-800 is built for simple system integration and is compatible with third-party devices. The MAC-800 is equipped and ready for system monitoring and trend tracking through Aptos Solar Technology’s cloud-based software.
“As we are celebrating our 10th anniversary this year, we are excited to bring solar and microinverters to the next level in the U.S. market together with Aptos,” stated Yang Bo, Hoymiles founder and CEO. “The ten years of hard work and innovation have made us the second top-selling microinverter manufacturer globally, and now, we are going to further tap that potential by making smart energy solutions available to more.”
