Is this solar panel kit right for me?
Small systems such as this 2000 Watt microinverter kit are great entry level packages to get you going with solar. The eight 250W modules don't take up much roof space, but the energy they produce can offset small and medium size loads like lighting, television and your kitchen appliances.
The 175-375kWh generated by these systems is great for a person who is already a conservative user of electricity. The average American uses 920kWh per month. Based on that average, this system could provide 20-41%. If you're a below average consumer, a small 2000W system like this might be all you need to get started then expand your system later.
Our kits provide all the solar components you need from start to finish.

Safer: The system does not employ dangerous, unprotected high DC voltages, eliminating the risk of potential fires as outlined above. The system’s cabling through the roof to your switchboard is regular 240V AC, the same as all other household cabling, and is circuit protected via a circuit breaker in your switchboard.
Shade tolerant and fault redundancy: Each solar panel operates independently, as it has its own dedicated micro inverter. The result is that the system does not suffer from the ‘Christmas light effect’ explained above; one shaded or soiled panel will result in a loss of power from that panel only, and will not drag down the performance of the others. The same goes for any fault; in a conventional DC solar system, a complete failure of a solar panel or central string inverter will usually result in an entire system failure.
Easily expandable: The system size is not ultimately dictated by the capacity of a wall mounted string inverter, allowing for additional panels to be added at any time and only limited by your roof space and budget.
Your Complete Solar Kit is based on the best micro-inverters in the business. These inverters are backed by world class technical & customer support. They come with an unparalleled 25 year warranty that matches the 25 year performance module warranty. One of the best features of the micro inverter is the ability to size your system in 2 module increments.
Call 586-883-2991 to give us details about your house and we can quickly provide a good estimate of how much the kit would produce if installed at the proposed location under proposed tilt and azimuth. You'll need to provide your zip code, your roof tilt and compass heading of the roof pitch.
The APS microinverter solution offers intelligent monitoring through the integrated APS Communicator, our state-of-the-art Energy Communication Unit, and the APS Monitor, our full-featured Energy Monitoring & Analysis software.
The APS Communicator (ECU)
The APS Communicator, our state-of-the-art Energy Communication Unit (ECU), is the information gateway for our microinverters. The unit collects module performance data from each individual microinverter and transfers this information to an internet database in real time, requiring only a single data and power cable. Through the APS Monitor software, the APS Communicator gives you precise analysis of each microinverter and module in your solar installation from any web-connected device. The APS Communicator’s integrated http webserver offers the simplest and most flexible network integration of any data logger on the market. The user-friendly browser-based interface lets you access your solar array in seconds.
The APS Monitor (EMA)
The APS Monitor, our robust wireless Energy Monitoring and Analysis (EMA) software, enables comprehensive, web-based monitoring that analyzes and reports the performance of each module in your solar array. This real-time data can be accessed from any web-connected device, anywhere, anytime.
Unlike conventional “string” inverter systems, the APS Monitor gives you control over each individual module and microinverter in your solar array, optimizing performance over the system’s lifetime.
Networked with the advanced APS Communicator (ECU), the APS Monitor (EMA) promptly detects any performance issues in your solar array, pinpointing the location and nature of the problem and providing precise guidance for necessary maintenance, all within our user-friendly graphic interface.
