Solar panel company Aptos is partnering with Chinese microinverter manufacturer Hoymiles to bring the residential microinverters to the U.S. market.
“Hoymiles has been a leader in the global microinverter sector since its inception in 2012. It has a proven track record of commercial success and has grown exponentially over the last 10 years. As a result of its superior technologies, it was successfully listed in China’s capital market with $875 million raised in December 2021. This is just the beginning as its future with Aptos is very bright,” states Alex Kim, President of Aptos Solar Technology. “This partnership will create exciting opportunities, not only for us, but for the entire U.S. market.”
Yang Bo, Hoymiles founder and CEO, also looks forward to a fruitful partnership with Aptos Solar Technology. “Closing the gap between the endless solar energy and usable solar power has always been what Hoymiles strives for. As we are celebrating our 10th anniversary this year, we are excited to bring solar and microinverters to the next level in the U.S. market together with Aptos. The 10 years of hard work and innovation have made us the second top-selling microinverter manufacturer globally, and now, we are going to further tap that potential by making smart energy solutions available to more.”
Frank Pham, Co-Founder & Managing Officer at Aptos Solar Technology further explains, “While solar panels are going through constant innovations, microinverters weren’t successfully keeping up. A fair amount of energy would be left on the roof from clipping, simply because the panel output was far exceeding the microinverter output. We are bridging this gap with this partnership. In terms of technological advancement, there is no one doing it better than Hoymiles. Our partnership will allow us to bring an affordable top-tier product to our distribution network.”
Hoymiles makes an 800-W dual-panel microinverter and a 400-W single-panel microinverter. This partnership is not for an AC module from Aptos, but instead offering the Hoymiles products to Aptos distribution customers.
