Enabling Smart, Simple Solar
Maximize Your Rooftop Potential through Flexible Design
For many home and business owners, the ideal PV system design involves varying module tilts or orientations, which can be a deal-breaker for traditional modules. Smart modules are opening the door for more flexible system configurations-without compromising performance.
By utilizing maximum power point tracking (MPPT), smart modules mitigate mismatch issues to ensure each module is performing to the best of its ability. As a result, smart modules are ideal for rooftops with partial shading from chimneys, trees or other obstructions.
Smart modules also enable expanded string lengths-up to 30 percent longer-to help customers make better use of available space and reduce balance of systems costs. This technology can also easily manage different types of modules on the same string.
For a better idea of smart modules' benefits, just take a look at some of our recent installations from around the world.
Build projects on contoured land
Hilly landscapes, like those in Sharon, Vermont, present considerable challenges for solar integrators. However, with Upsolar's smart modules, developers can design a system that flows with the land's natural contours. Additionally, smart module system owners and operators benefit from real-time monitoring, enabling them to pinpoint and correct issues before they become major problems down the road.
Use in versatile applications
The versatility of smart modules enables Upsolar customers to "go solar" in unconventional environments. Case in point: cantilever units for marina settings. Smart systems also feature built in safety elements like arc fault protection, and even enable remote shutdown to keep first responders safe from electrical shock in the event of a fire.
With all these benefits, and more, smart modules are an ideal solution to meet customers' evolving needs and spur the next wave of solar market growth.
