ORLANDO, Florida, September 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ReneSola Ltd ("ReneSola" or the "Company") (NYSE: SOL), a leading global manufacturer of solar photovoltaic ("PV") modules and wafers, today announced the release of Micro RePlus™, available as a standalone microinverter or integrated with a ReneSola panel for a turnkey AC module. Micro RePlus™ will lead the domestic microinverter market in performance, cost and production.
"Micro RePlus™ is what the industry has been waiting for, and we're thrilled to bring this solution to the market," said Kevin Chen, president of ReneSola America. "It combines features, such as 208 and 240 AC voltage options and an MPPT, or maximum power point tracking, efficiency greater than 99.5%, with a 25-year linear warranty to back up the performance promise, at a price nearly 20% lower than the current microinverter market. Micro RePlus™ also comes complete with monitoring software, communications gateway hardware and cables equipped with MC4 compatible connectors. This gives customers the tremendous advantage of knowing exactly what they are paying for the entire package, as opposed to being faced with hidden extra costs associated with cables and connectors."
Mr. Chen added, "We recognize the importance of bringing down the cost of complete solar PV installations, while keeping installations companies profitable, in order to make clean, solar power available to everyone. By offering installer-direct turnkey solutions, such as that of Micro RePlus™, prices for the end user are lower and margins for installers are greater. Our management recognizes this as a real value proposition based on its experience in the global PV industry."
The smart design of ReneSola's lightweight Micro RePlus™ makes for quick and easy installations and is designed to withstand harsh weather conditions with its weatherproof cabling and silicone potted enclosure. Micro Replus™ will be available for same-day shipping from ReneSola's east and west coast U.S. warehouses beginning this fall.
