Simplify and optimize rooftop solar system design

Generac Power Systems' simplified PWRzone system solves several problems faced by solar installers using traditional equipment: high failure rates, low efficiency, and complex installations. PWRzone reduces the number of connections that must be made on the roof, which also reduces the chance for faulty connections. Because PWRzone uses fewer components and less energy, more solar energy is available to the system owner. A PWRzone is a customizable sub-array composed of standard solar modules, PV Links, which is Generac's 2500W optimizer, and SnapRS, a rapid shutdown switch, where required. The PWRzone architecture allows installers to quickly install by roof conditions and facets. PWRzone provides the efficiency of a string optimization approach and the ability to maximize production in all shading scenarios. Installers can put as many as nine PV modules on a single optimizer or as few as two. The simplicity of designing the PV system with PWRzone equates to fast install times and better margins for installers together with fewer points of failure and better power utilization for the homeowner. PWRzone adds an element of simplicity when designing solar for Generac PWRcell.
