Blue Oak Energy Inc., a solar electric design and engineering firm, has released its PV Selection Guide – a tool that allows a system designer to successfully match modules and inverters in multiple configurations.
The tool is unique and universal, the company says, allowing users to view results from pairing any inverter and solar module on the market in the U.S. The photovoltaics market now offers more inverters and solar modules from manufacturers worldwide, and the ranges of electrical characteristics vary considerably across these new products. The goal of the PV Selection Guide is to assist a successful on-grid PV system design.
"This design tool fits our goals to reduce costs, streamline the design process and increase solar electric system quality," comments Tobin Booth, Blue Oak's president.
