After a year without an Intersolar North America, the show is back under new ownership in San Diego. Although it felt smaller than the previous iterations in San Francisco, many attendees told me it surpassed their expectations after the gap year.
There were around 170 exhibitors at Intersolar this year. Here are some of the new products I saw on the show floor:
CPS America brought its rapid-shutdown-integrated commercial inverter options to Intersolar. Both its 125-kW and 25-kW C&I inverters are compatible with Tigo and APsystems rapid shutdown solutions. CPS is currently evaluating NEP’s rapid shutdown solution too.
.@aesolar_energy has a cool demo of its “shading resistant hotspot free module” here. The hotspot-free module is on the right and the fountain it’s powering is not affected when individual squares are shaded. pic.twitter.com/1J6AIhRwU8

AE Solar ran a demo of its “shading-resistant, hotspot-free module.” The “hotspot-free module” is on the right. The fountain it’s powering is not affected when individual squares are shaded.
OutBack Power’s SkyBox hybrid inverter allows installers to plug and play storage at any point with no retrofitting required.
