More power, smart-grid ready with new YC600 microinverter
The powerful new YC600 microinverter from APsystems is the forward-thinking choice in all solar markets. Seattle-area installer Puget Sound Solar chose the YC600 for a recent residential installation in the Magnolia neighborhood, where homeowners will benefit from the 300VA peak output to take maximum advantage of Washington state's progressive net metering program. The 7.7kW system called for 22 modules arrayed over four distinct roof slopes on the multi-story home, using APsystems microinverters for design flexibility. Inherently smart-grid compliant with Reactive Power Control technology, the YC600 is designed and built for utility-interactive requirements today and into the future.

APsystems EMA mobile app now features module-level monitoring
APsystems now offers the same, widely popular module-level monitoring features from its online EMA portal in its convenient mobile app. The EMA app displays solar array power production by day and month, as well as current panel-by-panel performance.
The app also features a date selection tool which displays module-level performance on a specific date and time for even more in-depth monitoring.
In module view, users can select a specific module to view details, view a time-lapse or scrub through the timeline with their finger, and pinch the screen to zoom in or out.
These new EMA app features offer solar system owners even more ways to monitor their system performance, troubleshoot issues and even showcase their energy independence to their friends! Find out more about APsystems mobile apps here.
