PV Powered Announces New Low Power Solar Inverters for Residential Installations

Bend, ORE - March 4, 2008

PV Powered, the leader in high-reliability solar inverter technology, today announced new products specially designed to provide maximum energy harvest for smaller PV installations. With significant configuration flexibility, industry-leading reliability and easy jobsite installation, the PVP1100, PVP2000, and PVP3000 are ideally suited to the dynamic residential solar market.

An industry first, PV Powered is offering these new products in two different voltage ranges to best fit the needs of a wide variety of installations. The Extended Voltage Range (115-500VDC) products offer the industry's lowest MPPT voltage and are the ideal choice for integration with next generation low voltage and building-integrated (BIPV) modules. The Standard Voltage Range (150-500VDC) versions are optimized for traditional solar modules. Together, the entire product line leads the industry by offering the most design configurations across the widest range of PV modules.

These products are ideal for integrating solar power generation into new and existing homes and, with proper planning, allow homeowners to expand their PV systems over time. To monitor each system, units are available with or without a built-in multi-function display. They also include wired or wireless data monitoring which provides access to current and historical system performance data through a customized online interface.

"Our new line of low power inverters gives both the retrofit and new home construction markets the widest range of alternatives," said Erick Petersen, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for PV Powered. "In particular, our new entry level 1100 watt inverter will enable a wide range of smaller systems that our customers have been requesting. The numerous configurations made possible by these new products, combined with the high reliability that PV Powered is known for, make solar an outstanding long-term investment for our customers."

Production shipments of the PVP1100, PVP2000, and PVP3000 will begin in April. They are backed by an industry-leading 10-year nationwide warranty
