“This round of funding underscores our position as the leader in AC module technology,’ said Bill Mulligan, president and CEO of SolarBridge.

“AC modules are changing the way distributed PV is sold, designed and installed.

“Quality and reliability are critical differentiators in the microinverter segment, and our performance has established SolarBridge as best-in-class technology for executing a TrueACTM module.”

According to SolarBridge’s website, their TRueAC modules are roof-ready units that simplify the design and increase the reliability of PV systems.

“Residential and small-scale commercial solar have experienced tremendous growth in the US and abroad,” said Smith.

“SolarBridge’s unique technology aligns with our growing distributed generation business. AC solar will be a significant contributor to further reducing the cost of solar and driving continued growth in the market.”
