PV Powered Launches New Product: StarInverter PVP2800-XV
Bend, Oregon - May 2, 2005

Oregon based PV Powered announced today that it has received Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 1741 listing for the StarInverter PVP2800-XV utility interactive inverter. The newest member of the PV Powered StarInverter product line has an expanded voltage window, making it ideal for virtually all PV modules including lower voltage panels. Additionally, the PVP2800-XV has an industry leading peak efficiency of 96% and a weighted efficiency of 94.5%.

"This is a very exciting time for PV Powered. We have maintained our leadership position with the highest rating on the CEC list in our class and are continually adding new models to our line of superior products," said Bill Taylor, President and CEO of PV Powered.

The PV Powered StarInverter product line delivers industry leading efficiency, reliability and ease of use. Due to the higher efficiency and genuine continuous power output, PVP2800-XV customers experience a higher level of clean, green power production. Listening to customer feedback has lead to the implementation of a new mounting bracket system on the PVP2800-XV, making installation even easier. Based on revolutionary architecture, all of the inverters within the StarInverter family utilize the lowest parts count of any UL listed inverter on the market and require no active cooling.

"There is no question, PV Powered is here to stay. Over the past year we have made the industry stand up and take notice and we have no intention of slowing down," said Bill Taylor, President of PV Powered. "The PVP2800-XV is just a hint of what is yet to come."

The PVP2800-XV is both FCC and CE compliant. As with every model in the PV Powered product line, the PVP2800-XV comes standard with an industry leading 10-year warranty.
