That works out to a 0.07 percent downtime rate, dramatically outperforming the industry standard 2.15 percent downtime rate using centralized inverters. Compared to ordinary solar power systems, it is clear homeowners generate more electricity with fewer hassles with Suntricity Power Stations.
Wilmington, DE., (PRWEB) May 19, 2010
With thousands of solar panels in the field throughout Delaware and Pennsylvania, Suntricity Power, a leading designer and integrator of solar power systems, today highlighted data that shows its Suntricity Power Stations are significantly more reliable than ordinary DC solar systems and central inverters.
"We have experienced only a handful of problems out of the thousands of units that we have designed and integrated for customers," said Mark Hald, Design Consultant, Suntricity Power. "That works out to a 0.07 percent downtime rate, dramatically outperforming the industry standard 2.15 percent downtime rate using centralized inverters. Compared to ordinary solar power systems, it is clear homeowners generate more electricity with fewer hassles with Suntricity Power Stations."
Integrated AC Panel Design Boosts Reliability
Three factors contribute to the outstanding reliability of Suntricity Power Stations. First, the racking, and maintenance free flashing system. This system includes lifetime roof warranties, and is guaranteed against roof leaks. Roof leaks are the number one issue with 7-10 year old solar installations. The wiring, grounding and inverters are integrated into the microinverter system. Suntricity Power Stations use the highest quality parts available on the market to insure your system will work for the next 30 years. Second, the reliability of the integrated Enphase Microinverters, with over 100,000 units in the field they have become a dominant industry force.
And third, with per panel monitoring, Suntricity Power Station panels operate independently, thereby eliminating the most common problems encountered in a rooftop system: failure of the central inverter or high voltage DC wiring. Even if one Suntricity Power Station Panel malfunctions, the rest of the panels in the system are unaffected. This independent operating capability also ensures better energy production during partially shaded conditions. Additionally, each panel is individually monitored, allowing problems to be immediately detected and quickly resolved.
Real world data show Suntricity Power Stations continue to operate unscathed in severe weather -- even where ordinary systems would fail.
25 Year Panel, 15 Year Inverter Warranty Best in the Business
Suntricity Power Stations are protected by one of the best warranties in the business, a 25-year panel output warranty backed by Suntech, the largest crystalline panel manufacturer in the world, and a 15-year warranty from Enphase Energy, the leading microinverter manufacturer, and a standard 10 year 100% parts and labor warranty from Suntricity Power.
