Solar Zaanstad installed APsystems microinverters at Construction Company Vet
Solar Zaanstad installed APsystems microinverters at Construction Company Vet on an complex roof in Wormerveer, in the Netherlands. The construction was based on a zinc rounded roof, with east to west orientation.
Installing micro-inverters was a logical choice for Solar Zaanstad, given the experience they had already gained with AP systems and rounded roofs.
“Microinverters give you a higher return on investment for your PV installation. Monitoring is far better and more precise and a micro lasts much longer. Arguments that helped customers to make the best decision”. Rik Koedam, director of Solar Zaanstad: “Recently I spoke to a fire chief about extinguishing a house on fire with a string inverter. If you opt for microinverters, you get rid of this risk. It would not surprise me if fire regulations will change dramatically over time, related to PV systems”.
