Is this solar panel kit right for me?

This 5000W microinverter based kit is a serious residential solar system. It's one of the most popular installed systems. The energy generated by these systems is significant. The average American uses 920kWh per month. Based on that average this system could provide 40-90% of your usage and reduce your bill by as much as 90%. If you're an average consumer of electricity (920kWh/month), a 5000W system is probably a great fit for you.

A 5kW Solar Kit requires up to 400 square feet of space. 5kW or 5 kilowatts is 5,000 watts of DC direct current power. This could produce an estimated 350 to 850 kilowatt hours (kWh) of alternating current (AC) power per month, assuming at least 5 sun hours per day with the solar array facing South. The highest output will be achieved with an unobstructed south-facing view of the sun for maximum solar power. The actual power generated will vary based on location, equipment and installation factors. Refer to your electric utility bill to find the actual kWh used per month and compare it to how much power these low cost 5kW PV systems can generate.

How easy is it to install?

solar panels for home install


  • You can install a 5kW solar system in one or two weekends.
  • Our kits use industry leading solar panels, inverters, and racking systems specifically selected and combined to make do-it-yourself installation possible.
  • A homeowner who has wired an AC outlet and is comfortable working on their roof can install our Solar kit.
  • The micro-inverters in our kits have significantly improved the safety of installing a solar panel system by generating standard AC power instead of dangerous DC power.
  • Micro-inverters allow you to have as few or as many panels as you like and to easily expand your system later. They simplify installation as well as allowing monitoring of each module independently. Since each panel is an individual system they maximize the power output from each panel resulting in an average 15% increase in power generation per panel.
  • If self-installation is not for you, we can help you find a local solar contractor to help you with the process.


Why Choose Grid-Tie Microinverters?


MicroInverter Advantages

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.


Free System Monitoring

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)

APS Solar Communicator

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.



  • Collects individual module and microinverter statistics
  • Communicates in real time
  • Requires no additional wiring

The APS Monitor (EMA)

APS Solar Monitor

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.


  • Monitors and allows analysis of each solar module and microinverter
  • Allows remote access to the solar array
  • Shows performance issues and alerts the user to inverter events
  • Communicates in real time
  • Graphs system solar output over time to boost troubleshooting
