Sean, that just proves it ain't what you knowbut who you know.
How does the PV get to the main panel if no trunk cable required?
Here it shows how the connections are made:
It works like a trunk cable, but goes from module to module and you don't have to mess with dc, which is the biggest reduction in what you have to do.
Since it is made by LG, which is a large corporation with most of it's business outside the solar industry, I would be a lot less concerned about them breaking 10 years from now and going bankrupt.
The first electronics to go behind many modules were the Enphase microinverters which came out 8 years ago.
I was told by CED Greentech that if the inverter breaks, they have to replace the module. Wonder how that is going to play out. I think it would be hard to argue against ac modules being the fastest installation.
If you or anyone need any referral to any distributor, send me an email email@example.com
I can also hook people up with PV project financing.
