OutBack Power Technologies Inc., a provider of off-grid and hybrid renewable energy products and systems, has entered into a partnership with HiQ Solar, which specializes in three-phase power-conversion technology for commercial and industrial solar applications.
OutBack Power says it will sell and support HiQ’s TrueString products, which will provide OutBack a solution to bring commercial-scale solar to a wide new audience of design installation professionals and expand the brand’s reach into new markets.
“As two solar innovators focused on separate, but complementary markets, this is an ideal alignment,” says Harvey Wilkinson, general manager of OutBack Power. “OutBack’s expertise lies mainly in residential, light commercial and off-grid PV systems with energy storage, in single and split-phase configurations. HiQ Solar is emerging as a leader in the three-phase commercial/industrial grid-tied market. This alliance will introduce OutBack’s core customers to a new opportunity and add to their business portfolios, and we are thrilled with HiQ Solar to make that opportunity possible.”
