SolarBridge Technologies (SolarBridge), the leading provider of microinverter solutions for TrueAC™ modules, is pleased to announce the kickoff of the Need for Speed Installation Contest.

From January through September 2013, the installer who commissions the most AC modules powered by integrated SolarBridge microinverters each month will win a free iPad® mini and will be featured on the SolarBridge web site and social media sites. At the end of the contest period, the top five installers of AC modules overall will each win a grand prize. Grand prize winners receive a trip for two to Austin, Texas, and tickets to the 2013 Formula 1™ United States Grand Prix™ auto race.

To enter the contest, installers submit a photo and proof of their installations to the Need for Speed website by midnight Central time on the last day of each month. The top five installers of TrueAC modules at the end of the contest period will be announced at Solar Power International in Chicago. Each of these five winners will receive a three-night trip for two to attend the Formula 1TM Grand PrixTM championship in the fall of 2013 at the state-of-the-art Circuit of the Americas™ motorsports facility in Austin.

“This is our way of recognizing the installers who have made SolarBridge the leading provider of microinverters for integrated AC modules,” said Craig Lawrence, Vice President of Marketing for SolarBridge. “In the solar industry, speed and simplicity count. TrueAC modules powered by SolarBridge enable installers to grow their business with a truly plug-and-play PV system that is safer, more reliable and ultimately more productive.”

In recent timed installation tests, TrueAC modules with integrated SolarBridge microinverters installed up to two times faster than detached microinverter systems. In addition, microinverter-based systems have demonstrated up to 12 percent higher energy harvest than central or string inverter systems on a per-module basis, according to a recent study by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
