White paper: APsystems improves compatibility with Victron storage solution
While APsystems microinverters remain compatible with a wide variety of storage solutions, our engineers took a look at a few microinverter firmware features which could enhance compatibility with storage solution components like Victron's battery charger. By adjusting the communication frequency sent to the microinverters, the charge controller is able to gradually ratchet the amount of solar energy provided to the batteries up or down, as opposed to a simple on/off operation, resulting in a smoother charging process and improved battery life.

APsystems brings groundbreaking YC600 microinverter to CSPE, March 27-28
APsystems brings the new YC600 grid-interactive microinverter to the California Solar Power Expo, March 27-28 in San Diego.
Christopher Barrett, senior director of engineering for APsystems, will offer a training session 1:45-2:45pm PT on Tuesday March 27, introducing this groundbreaking new utility-interactive microinverter with Reactive Power Control (RPC) technology. The pinnacle of microinverter technology, the YC600 meets CA Rule 21 requirements and is inherently NEC 2014/2017 Rapid Shutdown compliant.
Find the APsystems team at Booth 58 in the Lower Level Exhibit Hall of the San Diego Convention Center.
The California Solar Power Expo is an interactive event designed for solar, smart energy, and storage professionals who are working in and with the California solar market to make powerful business connections. The event will feature exhibitor-led training for installers, contractors, developers and the entire solar and storage supply chain, as well as networking opportunities.
More than 70 exhibitors and 1,500 attendees are expected.
Lowen home and organic family farm, Coldstream, British Columbia
Winner of the APsystems Solar Project of the Year 2017 Award
Helmi and Kornelius Lowen of Coldstream, British Columbia, wanted to eliminate their power bill - or better yet, start getting a check from the power company under the local net-metering program. Working with a leading Canadian installer Got Solar?, they were able to populate three slopes of their farmhouse roof with solar panels powered by APsystems microinverters.
