Business description: ArrayPower, based in Sunnyvale, Calif., provides innovative power technologies for the solar industry that improve capital returns, maximize system performance and simplify system installation and operation, to the benefit of both manufacturers and system owners. The firm, which was founded in 2008 by a team with extensive international experience in the solar, power electronics and semiconductor industries, brings unparalleled quality and expertise to its customers and strategic partners. ArrayPower’s primary mission is to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of getting solar power from module to grid. Although incremental improvements have occurred at the component level, these have done little to reduce costs across the system either through integration or optimization. To respond to this need, ArrayPower, which is based in the famed Silicon Valley, has leveraged its extensive industry experience to develop a breakthrough product: a cost-optimized, three-phase sequenced inverter. This technology, which is fully integrated with the solar module, optimizes power performance by sequencing power from each module across the entire array to create AC power that is grid-ready and commercial grade. The result is a durable, safe and reliable system that delivers more power at a lower cost. By applying proven technologies to solar, ArrayPower’s team of world-renowned engineers has created a simple, powerful idea that dramatically improves the economics of solar.
