StraightUp Solar has been featured in Solar Builder Magazine for our pioneering efforts. We were the first installer to offer AC modules. This technology uses built in micro-inverters to take the pain out of DC power conversion. StraightUp is always seeking new ways to innovate and simplify the solar process so that we can build better relationships with our customers.
As you may know, solar panels produce power with a direct current but our homes use an alternating current. This arrangement is generally safer and more efficient for the consumer when it comes to powering our electric grid. However, it poses the problem of how to convert the DC solar power into AC power for your home. In the past, either larger inverters or micro-inverters were required but with the advent of AC panels this has all been taken care of in one unit.
