APsystems has surpassed 2 gigawatts (GW) of installed capacity to date — topping more than 146,000 solar installation sites in over 100 countries with its multi-module microinverters and rapid shutdown devices (RSDs).
The announcement comes as APsystems passes the 1-million-unit mark for RSD shipments under its APsmart brand, another major achievement for the company.
“Reaching two gigawatts is a tremendous accomplishment for our global organization and a milestone we are all very proud of,” said Dr. Zhi-min Ling, co-founder and chairman of APsystems. “Our customers around the world recognize the tremendous value and benefits of using APsystems products. This milestone is the result of our commitment to consistently add to that value and support our customers’ goals.”
For the unfamiliar, APsystems’ newly introduced product line, the DS3 microinverter series, is now the most powerful dual-module microinverter on the market, which the company elaborated on during a recent episode of The Pitch:
“APsystems has been a benchmark leader in solar energy since 2010,” said Olivier Jacques, APsystems president of global business units and global executive vice-president. “We have been recognized for creating the best-selling native 3-phase quad microinverter, and, recently, the most powerful range of dual-module microinverters in the world with the DS3 series. We are driven to push the boundaries of solar power.”
Additionally, APsystems continues to invest in its gateway software, inverter firmware, and its cloud-based online platform to protect installer and consumer data. APsystems’ information security management system (ISMS) is now certified to ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (also known as ISO27001), the international standard for information security, and encrypted Zigbee technology has been integrated as a standard feature in all new generations of multi-module microinverters.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We discuss everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
