Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada – June 20, 2019

Xantrex, a pioneering brand in AC and DC power technology has added solar solutions to its product portfolio. With the addition of solar solutions, Xantrex now offers a comprehensive suite of electric power solutions that also includes power inverters, inverter/chargers, battery chargers, backup power and lithium ion batteries.

In the first phase of this launch, Xantrex is offering rigid panel and flexible panel roof-mounted solar kits and expansion kits to accommodate future upgrade or expansion. The roof-mounted solar kits include a 30A charge controller and all necessary hardware designed for fast and easy installation, including PV and battery cables with built-in fuse and mounting brackets.

The roof-mounted flexible solar panels achieve added durability from a highly protective top-layer called ETFE (Ethylene-Tetra-Fluoro-Ethylene), which allows for better light transmittance, corrosion resistance, stain-resistance and weather resistance. The result is an overall superior performance over a wide temperature range while withstanding a variety of environmental conditions, compared to non-ETFE semi-flexible panels.

Among the flexible solar panels available in the market today, the premium Solar MAX panels are the most durable thanks to its unique mesh-grid technology. These panels are extremely efficient and can harvest up to 20 per cent more energy even in low light and shaded conditions when compared to a standard solar panel. Their peel-and-stick adhesive backing eliminates the need to glue or drill mounting holes, enabling a faster installation.

The portable solar kits are also available with a rigid or flexible lightweight panel option. The portable kits are ideal for camping, tailgating and applications where it may be impractical to have a permanently mounted solar panel.

Most of the solar kits come with a five year warranty. The solar kits are available through leading distribution partners and dealers throughout North America. The detailed product information is available at .
