Morningstar will be exhibiting at the 26th annual MREA Fair in Custer, Wisconsin from June 19-21. Stop by Booth C1 to learn more about the recently launched TriStar MPPT 600V Controller with DC Transfer Switch that enables retrofitting existing grid-tied systems with battery backup. Also on display will be Morningstar’s complete line of charge controllers, off-grid inverters, and accessories for use in solar, wind, and hydro systems.
See Morningstar controllers, inverters, and accessories at Intersolar Europe, Booth B1.789 on June 10-12, 2015 in Munich, Germany. The new TriStar MPPT 600V Controller With DC Transfer Switch will be on display. This product and its application to retrofit existing grid-tied systems with battery backup is an ees AWARD 2015 finalist. Stop by the Morningstar booth for more information about existing products and what’s on the horizon for the future.
Morningstar’s grid-tied battery backup application of the Tristar MPPT 600V Controller with DC Transfer Switch was selected as a finalist for the ees AWARD 2015. The TriStar MPPT 600V Controller with DC Transfer Switch, along with batteries and other components, can be applied to existing grid-tied solar systems to allow persons to switch on critical backup power in the event of a utility power outage. The vast majority of owners of solar systems have discovered to their dismay, that their existing systems will not work during a grid outage because the system’s AC inverter will cease to operate, and power from the solar array is left stranded. Until now, if people wanted backup power, they had to consider purchasing and installing a fuel generator or installing an AC coupled solution, or some other solution that resulted in environmental concerns, excessive costs, or installation complexities. The Morningstar solution represents a clean, quiet, affordable, and scalable solution to this problem. The TriStar MPPT 600V Controller with DC Transfer Switch will be available in Q2-2015. The electrical energy storage (ees) AWARD is powered by Intersolar to honor outstanding products and solutions in the fields of materials, production, systems technology, applications, second-use concepts and recycling. The winners of the electrical energy storage AWARD are set to be announced at an official ceremony at Intersolar Europe in Munich on June 10, 2015.
April 1, 2015 marks Morningstar’s 22nd year in business serving the world with high quality solar charge controllers and inverters. The company has grown steadily and has maintained the same ownership, the same strategy, and many of the same distribution partners since the very beginning. While the solar industry has seen many companies come and go in the last couple of decades, Morningstar has been a model of consistency and reliability, and we plan to maintain these standards for many years to come.
