March 25, 2013 - Schneider Electric Solar Business has launched various for solutions for residential, small commercial and off-grid solar and backup power. The Conext RL is a residential single-phase transformerless solar inverter available in 3kW, 4kW and 5kW power ratings, which boasts peak conversion efficiency of 97.5%. The expanded Conext TL line of inverters now offers 8kW, 108kW, 158kW and 20kW models. The transformerless grid-tie solar inverter is designed for commercial buildings, carports and decentralized power plants up to the MW range. The Conext Monitor 20 is a remote monitoring and control solution for small photovoltaic (PV) plants up to 20kW, allowing PV owners to monitor the operating performance of the inverter using a web portal. The Conext Designer is a PV system design tool where installers can select Conext range of inverters and panels and roof orientation help build designs aimed at maximizing energy harvest. The Conext SW inverter/charger is available in 2.5kW and 4 kW power ratings, and is a pure sine wave, inverter/charger system with switchable 50/60 Hz functionality available for both 120/240VAC or 230VAC models. Meanwhile, the Conext XW inverter/charger is available in 4kW, 4.5kW and 6kW power ratings. Operators of Conext XW and SW systems can remotely monitor yield performance using devices of their choice, such as personal computers, tablet devices, or building management systems using the new Conext ComBox communication device. Installers can change the settings of Conext devices during commissioning and react 24/7 to system alerts remotely.

November 30, 2011 - Eclipsall, an Ontario maker of photovoltaic (PV) solar panels, is now integrating selective emitter technology into its manufacturing process. According to the company, selective emitter technology has been proven to be more effective in lower light conditions like those in Ontario by enhancing solar cell performance with more efficient control of the phosphorous concentration that increases the area of each solar cell for electricity generation. This, in turn, helps reduce the cost of production and improve solar developers' returns, it adds.
