Enphase S280 Micro inverters are installed at each Canadian Solar panel, maximizing energy production and converting the DC power from the panel into standard AC electricity. This offers greater design flexibility and simplified installation, accommodating different roof planes, pitches, or rooftop obstacles. The first to introduce module-level micro inverters, Enphase technology maximizes safety and design flexibility. The S280 Micro inverters are covered by a 25-year limited warranty. Each Enphase Micro inverter is individually connected to one solar panel in yourfederal tax credit array. This unique configuration means that an individual Maximum Power Point Tracker (MPPT) controls each solar panel. This ensures that the maximum power available from each solar panel is exported to the utility grid regardless of the performance of the other solar panels in the array.

Designed for high-powered, 60-cell modules, the advanced grid-ready Enphase S280 Microinverter™ is built on the fifth-generation platform and achieves the highest efficiency for module-level power electronics along with cost per watt reduction. With its all-AC approach, the S280 simplifies design and installation for 280 VA installations, and delivers optimal energy harvest. The S280 is compatible with storage systems, including battery management systems. The Enphase S280 integrates seamlessly with the Enphase Envoy-S™ communications gateway, and Enphase Enlighten™ monitoring and analysis software.

Each of the micro inverters that makes up the Canadian Solar Enphase 9180W solar kit integrates with Enphase network technology allowing you to monitor each panel performance throughout the day. (Monitor is Optional) Enphase system monitoring capability be accomplished using the optional Envoy monitor by simply plugging into a 120 volt wall outlet. You can also track your solar production by using other different types of monitors, but most customers would opt for the Envoy monitor because you can read individual panel performance rather that the whole systems performance.

These Enphase packages ship with the new Enphase Integrated Ground (IG) technology. Integrated Ground (IG) technology is a fully-compliant system and equipment grounding incorporated into the microinverter cabling and the microinverter itself, making safety and code compliance easier than ever.

Canadian Solar panels all-black CS6K-M modules are equipped with dark mono-crystalline cells and a black frame to enhance the aesthetic appearance over standard mono modules.

Additional Hardware That May Be Required

aacBlue Pacific Solar has provided all of the main parts you will need for your kit. (See "What's On The Truck") Roof racks and roof rack attachment options or a ground rack system are site specific options that are not included with the base package. The Enphase Envoy monitor is not needed to make your system operate, but is a good idea since it allows you to see the panel level performance. Additionally some additional items sourced from your local hardware store that your may need to purchase are: Conduit, appropriately sized electrical wire from the array, some fasteners, sealant, grounding rod, junction box at the edge of the array where you will make the transition to conduit, an AC combiner box if you have more than one string and a AC disconnect within 10' of the main panel which may be required in some local jurisdictions.

NOTE IMPORTANT INSTALLATION: It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that all products are installed and operated in accordance with local and national building codes as specific by the NEC (National Electric Code), UBC (Uniform Building Code) or IBC (International Building Code) and local utility company policy. These codes may vary from city to city and county to county. All Grid-tied solar installations should be permitted and inspected, where required, by the local inspection authority in the same manner as other equivalent electrical systems. It is always a good idea to contract with a local licensed electrician to at least do the final electrical connection of your Canadian Solar Enphase 9180W Solar Kit from the AC disconnect to your home utility breaker box. Some local permitting authorities require that a licensed electrician do all the wiring from the rack to the utility interconnect.

Additional Safety Instructions; Perform all electrical installations in accordance with all applicable local electrical codes and the National Electrical Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70. Be aware that only qualified personnel should install or replace Enphase MicroInverter. Do not attempt to repair the Enphase MicroInverter as it contains no user-serviceable parts. If it fails, please contact Enphase customer service to obtain an RMA (return merchandise authorization) number and start the replacement process. Tampering with or opening the Enphase MicroInverter will void the warranty. Before installing or using the Canadian Solar Enphase 9180W Solar Kit please read all instructions and cautionary markings in the technical description. Connect the Microinverter to the utility grid only after receiving prior approval from the electrical utility company. Be aware that the body of the microinverter is the heat sink. Under normal operating conditions, the temperature is 15°C above ambient, but under extreme conditions the microinverter can reach a temperature of 80°C. To reduce risk of burns, use caution when working with microinverter. Do NOT disconnect the solar panel from the Enphase Energy S280-60-LL-2-US without first removing AC power.

This Enphase S280 Canadian Solar 9180W Kit is an affordable expandable do-it-yourself (DIY) high quality solution for your home or businesses energy independence.
