Panasonic Eco Solutions of North America and Enphase Energy, Inc., a global energy technology company today announced that the new Panasonic AC Series Photovoltaic (PV) HIT N330E AC Module with integrated Enphase IQ 7X Microinverter will be available for solar installation companies in late March.
Panasonic's N330E HIT AC Series Modules combines the efficiency of HIT solar panels with the intelligence of Enphase microinverters. One of the most efficient panels on the market, the N330E HIT AC series features high power outputs and greater energy yields due to their industry-leading temperature coefficient of -0.258%/â°C. The N330E features an integrated seventh-generation Enphase IQ 7X microinverter, which leads the industry with broad regulatory compliance, advanced "Smart Grid" features, a high fire safety rating, and 97.5% CEC efficiency. Panasonic HIT N330E AC Series Modules are guaranteed to keep at least 90.76% of their initial power output, driving value and peace of mind for customers who benefit from the 25-year Panasonic TripleGuard warranty on panels and the Enphase Energy Limited Warranty on the microinverter.
Panasonic AC Series HIT N330E Modules based on Enphase IQ microinverters meet or exceed regulatory requirements set by the National Electrical Code (NEC) and individual states and are certified compliant with NEC 2014 and 2017 rapid shutdown requirements. Unlike string inverters, Enphase IQ microinverters have rapid shutdown built in, with no additional equipment necessary. Enphase IQ microinverters also comply with requirements for distributed solar on utility networks included in Rule 21 in California and Hawaiian Electric Company Rule 14H, such as power factor, voltage, and frequency ride-through requirements.
