PV Modules, Inverters, and Mounting Equipment
SolShine Energy only installs top quality system components. Here is an overview of the solar components we use in PV installations.
REC Alpha Pure Modules
The REC Group was founded in Norway in 1996. They make excellent PV modules (solar panels) that come with a 25-year warranty.
We are currently using the 405 Watt REC Alpha Pure modules on most installations.
Enphase Energy was founded in Fremont, CA in 2006. Microinverters are mounted on the back of each PV module. These microinverters come with a 25-year warranty.
We install both Enphase IQ7+ and Enphase IQ8+ microinverters.
Tigo String Inverters
Tigo was founded in Silicon Valley in 2007. String inverters are typically mounted on a wall near your electrical service panel. Tigo string inverters come with a 12-year warranty.
SnapNRack Roof Mounts
SnapNRack was founded in 2007. The company is based in San Luis Obispo, CA. On most roof-mounted installations we use SnapNRack Ultra Rail 40. It assembles quickly and is strong enough to meet all local code requirements.
Unirac Ground Mounts
Unirac, Inc. was founded in 1998. The company is based in Albuquerque, NM. We use Unirac Ground Fixed Tilt (GFT) on our ground installations.
Unirac has two different footer options. We prefer the approach that uses deeper holes and less concrete. However, if we encounter rock, we can pivot to a shallow mount approach.
Sol-Ark String Inverters
Sol-Ark was founded in Allen, TX in 2013. String inverters are typically mounted on a wall near your electrical service panel. Sol-Ark string inverters come with a 10-year warranty.
We can install a battery backup with your initial installation or as an add-on to an existing PV system. As part of the installation, your essential appliances will be wired to a separate service panel. In this picture, we see an Enphase IQ 3 battery and an Enphase IQ 10 battery.
ChargePoint EV Charger
ChargePoint, Inc. is based in Campbell, CA. We can install a ChargePoint Home Flex Level 2 EV Charger as part of a PV installation or as a stand-alone project.
Unirac Ballasted Roof Mounts
These roof mounts are designed for flat roofs. They are weighed down with concrete blocks. They do not require any roof penetrations, so they work very well on membrane roofs.
