eIQ Energy Partners With Boots on the Roof to Train Solar System Installers in Parallel Solar Technology

eIQ Energy and Boots on the Roof today announced a partnership to introduce eIQ Energy’s vBoost module technology to Boots on the Roof’s solar PV training programs.

To start that process, eIQ Energy has contributed a dozen vBoost converter modules to the Boots on the Roof solar training program. Starting in January, this new equipment will be featured in the school’s commercial PV construction training program and added to the design exercises in its commercial PV design course. By incorporating vBoost modules into the curriculum, Boots on the Roof students will gain valuable experience building systems with eIQ Energy’s innovative Parallel Solar technology.

In traditional series architectures, underperforming solar panels can affect the electricity output of an entire system, like a bad bulb in a string of Christmas lights. With eIQ Energy’s patent-pending Parallel Solar technology, panels are connected in parallel, allowing each panel to operate at its own peak performance while a vBoost module steps up the voltage to create a constant output that enables the system’s inverter to run at optimal efficiency.

“We’re excited to be adding eIQ Energy’s vBoost modules to our training lab,” said Dale Weber, lab manager at Boots on the Roof. “This technology increases energy harvest, while the simplicity of the Parallel Solar architecture significantly reduces installation time and material costs, making this a great product to train our students on.”

“Parallel Solar represents the future of solar energy power management,” said Oliver Janssen, eIQ Energy’s chief business development officer. “We’re pleased to be working with Boots on the Roof and that they are using our technology to train the next generation of solar energy contractors, electricians and designers on how to improve the overall economics of a solar power system.”
