The release references new solar technology deployment throughout Delaware and Pennsylvania, by Suntricity Power.

Suntricity Power Corporation (SGCLLC) ( ) installed the first Tri-State Installation of the Micro-inverter System in New Castle County, Delaware in 2008. The revolutionary system uses multiple small inverters instead of a large centralized inverter to distribute the electricity of a solar electric system for homes or businesses. It was the first installation of a Micro-inverter System in the Tri-State Area. Since last year the market has grown, with Suntricity Power contracting over 500kW of Residential installations in the region with the bulk located in Delaware.

The production for this installation can be viewed over a private link through registration at the company website Suntricity Power is also planning on demonstrating this new technology throughout Delaware and Pennsylvania Home Shows this Fall. Suntricity Power now serves all three counties of Delaware, as well as New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. They provide free feasibility studies to evaluate if a Suntricity Power Station would work at your home or business.

Until now, every solar energy system installed in the state was completed using a traditional string inverter system. These systems have the solar modules wired together in a series or string. The downside to the traditional system is that things wired in a series are only as strong as the weakest link. So if one module in the string malfunctions, becomes dirty, or sits in the shade from a stray leaf, the energy from that entire string decreases. The micro-inverter system allows for increased energy harvest, greater reliability, and lower up front system cost. Suntricity Power is also able to add to an existing traditional system with this new technology. The Suntricity installed system will produce on average 5-25% more energy than a similar sized traditional system. In the solar market that means more energy savings and higher system earning potential.

Suntricity Power has extended the concept of a micro-inverter into a complete system, which includes the micro-inverter, embedded power line communications and a web-based performance monitoring and analysis tool. The tool is able to compare modules and if it notices an energy harvest issue, it will analyze the cause of the issue, evaluate whether the owner or installer needs to be notified and provide recommendations.

Suntricity Power Corp. is headquartered in New Castle, Delaware. The Company designs and develops residential and commercial solar installations in Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
