Fronius USA opened its doors to solar in the United States in 2002 in Brighton, MI and in 2013 moved to a 400,000 square foot facility in Portage, Indiana to better serve all its growing divisions and manufacturing needs. The facility houses Fronius USA’s over 100 employees and has recently installed a rooftop array. The large array not only serves the large facility’s energy demands, but assists in the company’s product research and development in the US.
Fronius USA is the leader the inverter industry, with a full product line that compliments the needs of all aspects of solar: from the small family home to the largest of commercial facility or solar farm. The Fronius SnapINverter line up features string inverters from 1.5 kW to 24 kW and the key differentiating design of the hinge mounting capability. This allows for these lightweight units to be mounted in less than fifteen minutes as well as several mounting options available.
Fronius USA recently developed a new technology in the industry that features the strength of the string inverter integrated with the module-level monitoring technology seen in many smart solar systems. The Fronius FE Inverter Line allows for design flexibility, shade mitigation and module-level monitoring on the ground and works seamlessly with optimizers or Tigo’s Tier 1 smart module manufacturers.
Fronius USA also offers free lifetime monitoring for its products, typically unseen from other inverter manufacturers. The inverters communicate wirelessly with Fronius’ Solar.web and other third party protocols, securing accurate data measuring and monitoring.

This webinar was presented live on Thursday, June 14, 2018. Click below to watch on demand. The commercial and industrial (C&I) space is one of the most challenging environments for solar installations. High ambient temperatures, high irradiance, obstructions, setbacks or pathways add to the complexity and cost of design, installation and operation &… [Read More]
The Section 690.12 update to the 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC) calls for module-level rapid shutdown of solar systems instead of NEC 2014’s array-level shutdown requirement. Starting Jan. 1, 2019 when NEC 2017 goes into effect in certain jurisdictions, all conductors within an array’s 1-ft boundary have to be reduced to 80 V or less… [Read More]
This installation tip was provided by Richard Baldinger, head of marketing for Fronius USA A PV system electrical fault often results from improper wiring. Specifically, points of connection, tension and friction are particularly notorious for being a fault source. Proper planning, materials and installation mitigates the risk of serial and parallel arcs, short-circuits and ground… [Read More]
