The new, more powerful SOLECTRIA XGI 1500-250 utility string inverters bring together US-based engineering and manufacturing with Yaskawa’s world-class quality and reliability. Yaskawa Solectria Solar announces its new SOLECTRIA XGI 1500-250 lineup of grid-support utility interactive inverters that features higher power and industry-leading DC oversizing ratios from 2.0 – 2.86.

The flagship model, with its rating of 250 kW and 600 Vac 3-phase output, is joined by models with 480 Vac 3-phase output, and select models with user-adjustable reactive- power overhead. Multi-inverter racks, factory assembled and tested, provide 1 – 2 MW power building blocks for large projects. In addition the SOLECTRIA XGI 1500-250 inverters have undergone advanced cybersecurity analysis to ensure they are the most secure and reliable solar inverters in the industry.

The SOLECTRIA XGI 1500 inverters are Made in the USA with global components at the Yaskawa America factory in Buffalo Grove, Illinois. XGI 1500 and XGI 1000 inverters are the only PV inverters designed and manufactured in the USA and are Buy America Act (BAA) compliant.

“We strive to stay at the leading edge in PV inverter product design. The new SOLECTRIA XGI 1500-250 series combines the most important elements that our customers have been asking for: increased power output, AC voltage options, high DC oversizing capability and advanced cybersecurity.” says Miles C. Russell, Director of Product Management at Yaskawa Solectria Solar. “Now we are able to deliver on these exciting advancements and continue the strong tradition of Yaskawa quality and reliability.”

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
