Fronius‘ newly introduced Repowering tool enables solar installers to offer their customers repowering options for their photovoltaic system, regardless of the inverter brand used in the original system.

”We are very pleased to announce that the Fronius Repowering tool is available in the United States. By offering this digital tool to PV installers free of charge, we’re helping them gain more business with compatible retrofit inverter replacement details,” says Richard Baldinger, Director of Sales & Marketing Business Unit Solar Energy at Fronius USA. “This gives PV installers looking for new revenue streams a great opportunity – especially in states like California, where many solar systems exist, and the number of new installations is currently going down,” adds Richard Baldinger. 

Benefit as a homeowner or business by taking advantage of Repowering 

Homeowners and businesses that have an existing PV system are finding value in upgrading to a new Fronius inverter that comes backed with a 10-year warranty and higher efficiency results. Not only do these new inverters provide the homeowner or business a peace of mind warranty, but they also gain an upgraded system with monitoring capabilities using state-of-the-art tools that may not have been available with their older or existing inverter, such as mobile apps. 

Benefit as an installer with use of Repowering 

With solar inverters being a critical component for system performance, installers can engage with their existing customer base, generating new business while keeping their customers’ satisfaction high. Furthermore, new revenue streams can be created by servicing orphaned systems, where the original installer or inverter brand no longer exists. This new revenue stream allows installers to offset decreasing revenues if they are experiencing a decline in new installations. The Fronius Repowering Tool makes it easier for solar installers to find the proper replacement inverter, no matter if the old inverter is from Fronius or another manufacturer.
